LOL- like my title? So, I got a little (ok a lot) desperate today...just felt like I couldn't do this pregnancy thing anymore...sooo...I took 2 tbs. of mineral oil mixed with orange pop. (My grocery store doesn't have castor oil and I believe they are essentially the same- or at least give off the same effect) at around 8:30/9:00 am. Got a little nauseated and had some mild contrax. at around 10:00 ish. That's it. Nothing more. I didn't even need to use the bathroom once. Ok strange, but whatever. So a couple hours ago I took a walk with my boys to the park and since we got back home I've been having some stronger b.h. contrax. (shocker! right??? lol) I had this incredible urge to (ahem) use the facilities. I got absolutely NOTHING accomplished. I sat on the dang toilet for about 45 minutes with nothing to show for it, lol. I mean, really? HOW can I be constipated after taking something that is supposed to make you poo your brains out!? I'm feeling quite uncomfy and "bound up" so to speak...so I grabbed one of d/h's Pabst Blue Ribbons (no idea why he bought that- as we normally drink Miller Lite) and am enjoying (or not) a Pabst. For some reason (when I'm not pregnant) beer makes me poop. So I hope this will at least help clear the bowels. I must be quite the site. 38 weeks pregnant bouncing on my birthing ball drinking a Pabst. WoW. Just thought I would share. Hopefully someone can get a laugh out of this...it's been quite the day.
E.T.A. : I know not everyone is ok with drinking alcohol during pregnancy, so I hope I didn't offend anyone. I've (personally) always felt comfortable having A beer or glass of wine at the end of my pregnancy- but I do know that not everyone agrees with this. Just wanted to throw that out there---
