And not Winnie, either. Those of you with squeamish tummies should pass on this post as it is basically a rant about my inability to do number 2. Gross, yes, but very true.
Nobody ever mentioned that your bowels can essentially turn to cement during pregnancy. I heard all about morning sickness, faintness, extreme fatigue, hormone zits and tears, etc. Not one mention of steel stool. My abdomen feels like it’s going to heave itself in two and is churning more than a ready-mixer. Yet all it has passed in the last 7 days is gas and even that has been difficult. I drank a cup of MoM last night hoping for relief this morning. It’s a no-go. If I don’t do anything in an hour, it will be suppository time in the Kirk household. Thankfully, my poor hubby is not around as a witness.
Sorry. When I return to regularity, I will also return to normal.
