you can use glycerine suppositories in pregnancy only for short term .The allergy to Glycerine is to be excluded.It should not be used for releaving daily bowel discomfert,for it may cause excess stimulation of bowel which may be risky for pregnancy,

In pregnancy constipation is common ,&you can get releif by taking plenty of fibers(vegetables,salads,fruits)in diet,10 to15 glasses of fluids orally,®ular moderate exercises).
