This is kinda embarrassing but....Just wondering if anyone knows how much of it you have to drink to become "unclogged" lol, cause this shit is NASTY!!! I'm thinking about bustin' out the shooter glasses, and chasing with water... lmao!!!
lol sorry i can't help, but your post was funny to read. I'd probably do the same, just break out a shot glass Let me know how it goes hehe cuz I might need to try that method soon if my trips to the bathroom don't progress!
Okay guys I am dying here... WARNING TMI ahead... I drank a half litre of it, and nothing but a whole lotta baaad cramps, and when i sit on the potty I feel alot of vaginal pressure, like as if i am gonna pop a baby out... I have never had constipation before, and am in alot of pain after drinking that juice... I cant call my doc until the morning, and it is just after midnight here... any suggestions?
Hey I had this very same problem the other week, I know only too well how horrible it is!! I was constipated for about 5 days so when and bought prune juice, I drank a glass of it in the morning and at night The stuff is nasty! really thick and awful!! that didn't work, I then phoned my Midwife and she told me that since it was now over a week I could take some Senokot! (apparently wrong advice ) but that didn't work, I was then advised to take glycerin suppositories, which helped only a little I was miserable and now into week 3!! So I gave up on my Midwife and phoned my Doctor who was Infuriated at my Midwife for her suggestions, he gave me a prescription for Lactulose! and you know what it's great, I'm all flushed out lol I would see your doc for a prescription for that before it gets really sore! I was laid up with really bad craps and back ache because of it, not nice and it made me feel really sick, loss of appitite ect Plus as a safty measure for it not to happen again after the medicine has worked try and drink more water. I've always been a bit of pain for not drinking enough and when your pregnant your body uses up more water than ever so that very well could be what the problem is.
For years I suffered from irritable bowel disease and on a normal basis, I would eat something small, bloat and feel 9 months pregnant, and there were days where I didn't go to the bathroom at all. It sucked, and I wasn't even pregnant.
My first pregnancy somehow corrected the problem and I don't have it too often anymore.
Something that helped me go is a cup or two of coffee in the morning, and even though I am pregnant, I still drink it.
But that's probably not good advice if you are not a coffee drinker or are staying away from caffeine.
So here's something else, try boiling water and put some lemon in it. For some reason, the warm liquids helped me.
Another thing, try drinking your eight glasses of water everyday. I don't normally but I love it with lemon and drink more of the stuff when I do have a slice of lemon in it.
To ease the pain, a few things relax my stomach....a hot water bottle or a nice bath This may not make you go, but will help ease the gas cramps!
I went into a herbalist today and they recommended linseed. You have to put a tablespoon in some milk overnight to let them swell then put them off your breakfast the next day.
I actually bought them for my friend who is having bad problems so ill let you know if it works!
