Image via WikipediaIn keeping with my goal of being more honest and "real" on dis here blog, let me tell you a story. A story of the crazy roller coaster that has become my innards.
While I am just barely to the 2nd month mark, I'm pretty sure I should buy stock in Metamucil or some other "stool softener" that is acceptable to take while pregnant. I do not remember ever having this issue with my other two pregnancies.
Unfortunately, I must have eaten too much of that smörgåsbord of Thanksgiving. I woke up Sunday morning with a horrible tummy ache. No matter how many trips to the bathroom I made, they were all unsuccessful. So I did what any worried, frantic person would do. I overcompensated. I drank a ginormous glass of eggnog, ate two helpings of salad, and waited.
Finally, finally... success. Then I took a nap 'cause that's what pregnant chicks do when your husband has forced you to watch hours upon hours of football in one day. Don't get me wrong, I love me some football, but OMG... I can only take so much. I think this may have been my biggest mistake. While I was taking a much needed little snooze, all that lettuce and veggies mixed with that ginormous glass of eggnog was getting all brewed and stewed and fermented. Suddenly, the throne and I were best friends. Inseparable we were... for hours.
In the span of one day (really less than 24 hours) I went from one extreme to the next. Now I'm trying to remind myself to drink at least one glass of 100% juice everyday to avoid this "mishap" again. I want to know if any of my loyal readers have ever encountered this in their pregnancy (or pregnancies) and what kinds of tips or tricks worked best for you.
