Okay... I was embarrassed to ask this but I just have to, do you think I should go to the doctor? Here's my BM situation:
ER: 10/25, ET: 10/27. LOTS of bloating and very very little BM (sorry, I know, gross) since then. Since Sunday night I've taken stool softeners (after calling a nurse and getting the okay), drank prune juice, eaten bananas, etc. I've read that lots of people have these symptoms with ER/ET and all of the drugs (I'm on progesterone suppositories---getting really really personal with this post, huh?) but I'm starting to freak out a little. So far I've had 2 very small and strenuous BMs, but nothing like what they should be. Should I go to a regular doctor, or just be more patient? Today I've only eaten a prune, a banana, pickles, a cup of coffee, and pistachios. I also went to the gym for the first time since ET and walked for about 2 miles (slowly, but wanted to start getting back on track). Nothing! Just a lot of strain in the bathroom and worry that I'm going to hurt myself (or the hopeful little embies hanging out hoping to attach, FX).
I'm really, really sorry if I'm grossing people out talking about poop. I hope you'll all forgive me. Any veterans know of something I'm not doing that I should try?
