My arse hurts!!!!!

I had been so worried about keeping food down that I completely lost track of... well you know. Now I'm SOOOO backed up I can hardly do ANYTHING.

I've been downing the prune juice and we are taking a family walk after dinner. I sure hope this passes soon. (No pun intended).

If you're taking zofran for nausea, that can be the culprit. Try going a day without it and see if that helps. I had to skip days every once in a while with my daughter to keep things moving.

I agree with Rachel I would have to take a little miralax here and there at the beginning of this pregnancy. Now that I am in the second trimester I'll allow myself occasional coffee and that helps too.

I still take Zophran once in a while and I pay for it with constipation. Mine was so bad... well you don't want to know. I had to take colace once in a while. I am so sorry, I feel for you.

I hope it gets better for you soon. I had TERRIBLE constipation with DS. I won't go into details other than I became acquainted with the term "fecal impaction" for the first time. Yeah, not fun!

Yep, since I've been taking zofran the whole time it's been horrible.
