ok so I had an app with my midwife today and some of you may be more than aware of this but some (like me) may not. BE AWARE OF YOUR BOWEL MOVEMENTS!! I was examined today and my midwife said gosh you are in need of a really good clear out! I didnt know where to look Now at the risk of presenting tmi I am not exactly what I would call 'regular' thats not to say I'm constipated or have problems but Im an every couple of days kinda gal. However I cant say Ive paid much if any attention to my bowel movements over the past 2/3 weeks and the midwife said having a jam packed bowel like I have will most certainly cause problems in my labour progressing as its restricting the baby from being able to freely bounce on the cervix thus not progressing the labour. She also said that it would make it harder for the baby in the birth canal -its like having an extra obstacle in her way, so Im to up my fresh fruit and veg over the next couple of days! I just thought id share as here i am obsessing about rlt and castor oil and sex etc and hadnt even given a second thought to something as easy as my bowels! So ladies grab the prune juice and make sure your having a daily bowel movement- you never know its what could be the difference!
