Bedrest would be better if..

The dog would not take your spot. I got up to go to the bathroom, and I come back to find this....

Sigh. They can make things so difficult.

I am having a hard time getting motivated to do anything today. Still constipated, though. I have been very burp-y the past few days. I woke up this morning with horrible abdominal pain. It seemed to come on quickly. Called the Wizard, and he was very concerned. I finally 'fessed up to the constipation I have been having. It is about to drive me batty. Hubby went out this morning and got me some Mira.lax, which helped to reduce the pressure and made me way more comfortable. I am also taking the bene.fiber as a fiber supplement. Also drinking a lot of water. (Thus the trips to the bathroom.) But still not BM today. I am ever hopeful, though.

I need to call the Apprentice so that I can make sure I get blood work done. I probably ought to tell him how I have been feeling, too. The Wizard is really worried, but I suspect most of my issues are from constipation, not from ovaries. At least that is what I am hoping.

I really hope all of this is worth it.
Please, let this work!

I've been constipated more often than not, every day for the past 4 sucks.

Have you tried prune juice? That's usually what I do, but the thought of it isn't something I could tolerate for the past few months.

Hopefully it get's better soon.

Have you tried Colace?

I'm thinking of you and hoping this cycle taskes too!!!!

I second the prune juice or those sweet prunes, i know being constipated is horrible, i totally feel for you.

P.s. yes i know all about dogs stealing your spot when you get up. I have 3!

I don't have any advice on the bm front, but wanted to say that Harley does the same thing whenever I get up and go to the bathroom. Although I can just pick her up and move her.
