I just want to poop.
that's not asking for much..right?
I can't handle prunes, but dried apricots work pretty well for me. :)
Pineapple and mango worked for me. And some Colace to help it pass without tearing me a new one. Decaf coffee normally works like a charm for me, but the Zofran was undoing all the coffee's hard work! Pumpkin (real, not just the flavour) works really well, too.
Nowadays, I have the opposite problem. I take an Immodium tablet once every other day...
Country Girl in the City:When I poop it is a good day. I now understand why they told me to buy the extra large bottle of colace.

I now understand why they told me to buy the extra large bottle of colace.Are you using the Colace to make it easier when you poop or to make you poop? Because Colace doesn't make you poop-- for that, you need other stuff. (I didn't learn this until nursing school-- I thought previously that it was all stuff to actually make you poop.)
The colace makes the poop softer so it is easier to get out, kind of like a lube for poop (I actually did learn that in nursing school but it never mattered before). Most laxitives are not a good idea during pregnancy. Now I am on iron so it is not going to get any better.
Hot cup of coffee... Works every morning :)
