Two weeks before the birth of my last child (by c-section) the doctor told me I'd need an enema the night before the procedure. So I bought a Fleet Ready-To-Use Enema... and then spent an agonizing, confusing couple of hours in the bathroom trying to contort myself every which way to get that darn thing in! I couldn't reach back far enough to get the right angle to try to get it in... at least I think that was the problem. I couldn't really see what I was doing, which didn't help, either. Anyway, after about two hours I came out of the bathroom and my husband said "Did you do it?" and I said "I can't!" and he said NOTHING. I knew he wouldn't want to help (back story: he was raped as a child and is extremely uncomfortable about anything in that area) but is it even POSSIBLE for me to give myself an enema? I'm sure my doctor will want me to get an enema before my next c-section (I'm preggo again) and I don't know what to do. :(
