I've discovered the worst pregnancy symptom
The last few days I have been in my own personal hell. This is pregnancy number 4 for me, but somehow I've never had to deal with this symptom before. Ugh...constipation
I'll try not to be too TMI here, but I'm hoping I can save someone else if this happens to you. If you notice any symptoms of it, start doing the easy remedies immediately. Prune juice is beyond gross, but it's better than the alternative by leaps and bounds. I'm a very regular person, but I let it go for 3 days because I just thought this is one of those bad parts of pregnancy that I've not had to deal with before. Big mistake! By yesterday I thought I was going to explode so I called the dr to find out what I could safely do. I was told to use a glycerin suppository, and then miralax for a few days to get things back to normal. Umm...I'm not sure what most people would consider normal, but right now is the first time I've spent more than 30 minutes outside of the bathroom since yesterday at 2pm. Never again! I feel like I just got over the worst stomach flu to ever exist. I am planning on living on fiber and prune juice for the duration of this pregnancy.
