WARNING TMI: Weird Bowel Movement

Mobile: WARNING TMI Weird Bowel Movement 

This is TMI, but who else, besides my pregnant internet stranger friends, can I discuss bowel movements with? No one. 

This morning, I was having some mild cramping. I decided to try going to the bathroom. It was actually really easy! No constipation, no hardness. It was glorious.

Then, when I looked, the actual product was super long and skinny. Not pencil-thin, but not  normal thickness. I don't know whether to be grateful for the easiest BM in 6 months or to be concerned with the weird shape. 

As Liz Lemon once said,

  • I have had a few like that recently. It is really nice to not have to struggle to go. Ob said not to worry

  • How long has it been since you've gone? For the most part I wouldn't worry, but it also made me think you might be backed up and that's what could squeeze by, if that makes sense.

    You would think so, but I go once or twice a day. It's just normally a lot more difficult. Like, I typically spend 10 minutes in the bathroom. This was like one minute.

  • Those have been my poops lately.

    I still poop all the time.

  • Third trimester has been remarkable kind to my intestines. I wouldn't worry about what you described. Sounds like a skinny poo. /shrug

    I think this is me, too.

    I was LITERALLY just telling DH I would do unholy things to take a big, fat sh!t right now. Like, clog the toilet big, just so I could feel like I've made some progress down there.

  • I've been experiencing the same thing the past week. I'm not questioning it though! Don't want to upset the BM gods. Just keep telling myself it is my body's way of making more room for the labor process. ;)

    Could not agree more. From someone who would be lucky to go 2-3 times a week to 2 times a day on average the past several weeks, I am not complaining!!  Also, in the days - weeks leading up to labor, our bodies start doing some weird things to prepare.  so consider it a very welcome change!

    all of this sounds about right to me

  • I finally went after two days.. It was glorious. The times I have been going I usually go a few times a day because its just not possible for an all in one go poop. Hmm, does that make sense? Anyways, glad you had a quick poop though!!!
