How to treat constipation in pregnancy?

Any moms out there experience extreme constipation during pregnancy? I’m 32 weeks, and am taking progesterone to prevent preterm labor. I know progesterone can really bind you up. However, when I was pregnant with my son it wasn’t this bad. I get so sick, and weak before a BM. Like to the point where I can barely move. I’ve had to leave work several times just because I was so fatigued I could barely function. Then when I got home after a few hours, I would go to the bathroom, and I would start to perk up, and feel better. I take Metamucil everyday. Even if I am regular I still feel this way. Anyone else deal with this during pregnancy?
