  • I am saying this in all seriousness. The only thing that is going to make you feel better is 9 months from now when you give birth. Your body is going to do the opposite of everything you think it should do from this point until the baby is born. People will tell you "you're gonna be hungry" instead you'll be nauseated. People will tell you "now you should feel the baby move," and your kid will sleep all day and scare the crap outta you.
    To answer "I thought I was supposed to be constipated" is if you're taking a pre-natal vitamin many of them now add a stool (poop) softner to them because pre-natals are high in iron which makes people constipated. Check your vitamins. If they have a stool softener try to find a brand that doesn't. If you can't tell,bring them up to the pharmacist and they can tell you. I hope you feel better.

  • Stay hydrated. Try the BRAT diet and use wet wipes, they clean better and are more gentle.
