Constipation in Pregnancy

Constipation is a real pain in your behind if you are pregnant. I had diarrhea the last weekend and I managed to fix it with toasted bread, mint tea and bananas in just two days, one more day and I would’ve gotten to the doctor. Fixing this problem resulted in going back to the problem I had before diarrhea, which was constipation. So from Sunday I couldn’t go to the bathroom at all, this is my fifth day.

The first two days I was afraid of eating fruits and fibers as I didn’t want the diarrhea to return, I lost 1,5 kilos in the weekend and gained 2 back the first day of my recovery, but now I have to try harder, soon I will explode if not.

There is a type of yoghurt that contains fibers and fruits and helps a lot with it but I didn’t know I needed till last night when I realized four days past and nothing. I think I was more afraid of the diarrhea, cuz it kept me awake, I had stomachache in the middle of the night followed by bathroom trips.

But now I can’t tell you what do I hate more, being constipated, that means bloated, feeling heavy, nauseated because I feel full, in pain when gas tries to get out or when diarrhea hits and making me feeling nausea because of stomachache, sleepy because it wakes me in the middle of the night, cold because the bathroom is cold, but lighter because eventually there will be nothing else to get out. Sorry for too many details.
