It can go either way!

Bannanas are part of the brat diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast) that many OBs give to pregnant ladies (in fact, that's the only reason I know about it). BRAT foods are low in fiber and easy to digest which is great for intense morning sickness - because you might be able to digest some of it before it comes back up... but can also cause constipation if you don't have any gastrointestinal distress going on.

Sure did! I lost 13lbs my first trimester with Audrey. I was SO SICK ALL THE TIME.

    I've never heard of bananas causing constipation and do not recall any of our children ever having issues.
