So ... I'm constipated. And it sucks and it's painful.
DH talked to our pharmacist who gave me some stool softeners. I'm a little freaked out about taking it. I just hate taking ANYTHING pregnant, no matter who says it's ok. I took one one day and it didn't seem to help, so now i don't know if i want to keep taking them. I have an appointment in two Thursdays (8/9) and i'm trying to hold out on talking to the Dr until then but this is rough. I think i'm going to call tomorrow and see what they say.
Does anything in particular help you? I am having abdominal pain periodically from being so badly constipated and I just want it to go away !
I was eating oatmeal every morning but now it's making me sick. I'm trying to drink a lot of water and doing my best to get fiber down.
