Hi.  I am having more constipation issues the last few days.  I got this bread that is a sourdough bread from Canada.  The ingred are brown rice flour, deep well water, ground flaxmeal, sea salt.  Anyway, it is a gluten-free sourdough and is delicious.  But, can the flax cause constipation?  I have been eating brown rice, brown rice crackers, and have not had any constipation issues, but have not eaten the flax.  

What do I need to do?  I am 14 weeks preg today.  When I go to the bathroom, it is hard and clumpy, ball-like.  Help!!  

Also, how much water should I be drinking per day?  Maybe I'm not getting enough.

You will want to drink more water if you are consume dry ground flaxseed since it will absorb some.

Okay, I have been eating TOO MUCH of the bread since we got it a couple days ago!  Now that you asked that, I realize it is too much!  I've probably had 4 - 6 slices a day...  I know that is too much, but it is so easy to throw a couple pieces of bread on a plate, not having to prepare anything.  Yikes. I better revamp this a bit.  I bet that is the prob, quantity.  What do ya think?
