36 weeks and SEVERE constipation… HELP!!!!!?
I had IBS before I got pregnant. So far I’ve been ok execpt for my 3rd trimester. I spent all of Friday in the hospital because docs were worried I had a bowel obstruction, since 3 enemas failed to clear me out. They finally had to resort to the GoLytely solution that they normally give to patients having colonoscopies.
Has anyone else has such bad constipation problems? What have you done about it. I drink prune juice, take stool softner, eat mass quantities of fiber, drink tons of water… everything the docs tell me to do, but they think I don’t do it because to them I shouldn’t be so backed-up if I followed their instructions.
I keep thinking that if they would just induce at 37 weeks, my life would be better (baby’s heart rate also goes up to 190’s in response to my pain) but they don’t want to induce until 38 weeks. I am convinced that I could be in really bad shape in 2 more weeks.
What should I do???
