Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad, Morning

****TMI ALERT****

Pregnancy is so glamorous isn't it? Not only do our boobs leak, other parts leak, we break out, get fat, grow hair, and sweat but we can't poop either. That's where I am at right now. I CAN'T POOP! Towards the end of my first pregnancy I had the same problem. I wouldn't go for weeks and when I did it was a complete chore. Well it looks like I am starting that early this time. Yesterday night I had a belly ache and my usual miserable migraine. I went to bed hoping they would both go away. Wrong! They both were worse by morning and all night while I tossed and turned. So I get up to my alarm and immediately head for the bathroom. I turned on the water for the shower, so it would get hot and then went to use the bathroom. Well what do you know I can not go. No matter how hard I tried....nothing. I won't gross you out with the details but lets just say it was an hour of hard work, sweating and chugging water. I eventually had to get in the shower so I could get to work and I had no idea that an hour went by.

Well I forgot the water was running though whole time. Even though it was in the same room as me I was clearly focused on other things. Of course there was no hot water left after my bathroom situation. I had to shower so I took a freezing one. Might I say I was wide awake after that. I then had fifteen whole minutes to do my hair, makeup and get dressed. I had to just let my hair be curly, put most of my makeup on and the rest at work and thank God I put my clothes out the night before. I told my mother on the way to work all about my morning. We stopped and she got me a bran muffin and small ice cappuccino to try and help. No luck so far but it was a nice gesture.

After that great start to my morning I really just wanted to curl up in a ball and go back to bed. Thankfully the work day is almost over now and I will be headed straight to the grocery store after! Everything they carry with fiber I am buying. I hope I can clear myself out my stomach is really staring to hurt. O.K. that's enough of my TMI rant sorry if I disgusted you, chances are if you have kids or are having a baby you know what this feels like though.
