I'm in deep S***. Am I going to die? HELP!!

I am 3 months along and I some how pulled the muscle that runs along my right side while doing house work. The bad part is I have to poo, but I can't, because that muscle hurts so bad like I am being stabbed in the side when I try to go that I just can't use it. What do I do? I never ever had this happen with me before and I have a kid already! I don't want to die from bowel impaction or something.

  • girl you won't die when I was prego I didn't go for 2 weeks at a time, I would call ask a nurse at your hospital and explain the situation to them and maybe they will suggest something for you

  • Your poo will get to the point where it will literally roll out of you. No pushing required. Jenny McCarthy was constipated for 14 days when she was prego...trust me, you can hold a lot of poo. You won't spontaneously combust or anything.

  • call your care provider to see if there is a stool softner you can take. or try to eat something to help you go. apples, apple juice, etc and cut down on things that can "back" you up more, like bananas.
