Ladies, I am so embarrassed that I'm having to write this. The only reason I'm asking is because I've always gotten awesome advice from these boards. I know that with pregnancy comes constipation. But lately I have been absolutely miserable. I can't go to the bathroom at all. I realized on friday that I hadn't had a BM since Monday or Tuesday. I've been trying to drink plenty of fluids but I guess my "plenty" is not enough...I ended up having severe abdominal cramps Friday night and called my doctor's office. The nurse practitioner returned my call and told me some remedies to try (which I already had)then told me to go to the ER. I felt like I was jumping the gun, but I went. I waited six hours with my abd cramps and finally got to see a doctor at 3am. He rehydrated me and ended up doing a mineral oil enema (I'm so embarrassed!) it fixed the problem.
I didn't have a BM the rest of that day or the rest of that weekend. I only ate broth and/or soups and drank a ton of water, Gatorade, and apple juice. Today I felt the "urge" and tried...nothing. I know I have to go but Im that constipated that I can't. You guys I've tried miralax, colace, more fluids, fiber supplements, another enema, etc....nothing has worked. My stomach aches and I constantly feel nauseated. I know that the majority of what I've done just helps prevent the issue, not resolve it. I have a doctor appointment Wednesday and actually plan on calling on the morning to see if they can recommend anything. But I need advice now. I've never been so uncomfortable.
Surely SOMEONE here has been through this. What can I do to help now?? Like I said, I am so embarrassed so please be nice. I wouldn't wish this on anyone!
