no laxatives as there's a risk of miscarriage take banana plus food, as much as you can eat, it's a natural laxative and complete food. no heavy solids no normal meals till system is clean drink plenty of warm water with honey and juice of lemon or green light tea or diluted milk no cold items though curd at room temperature is good don't overload the foodpipe just eat for the sake of nourishment and to cleanse the food pipe remaining days of pregnancy, may be such problems will trouble you eat banana rich diet as a habit and avoid foods which causes distension
