So I was a bit bound up over weekend what with sickness tablets and not drinking enough water. Finally managed to go on sunday. Massive, hard poo. Proper gripping the side of the bath sweating to get it out. Ring sting and everything. Fucking hurt!! Actually think I grazed or tore myself. Soo sore after and every day since I've needed to go!! And they still hard poos. Am proper walking like I've shit myself and sweating after going again this morn!! I imagine that's what your bits feel like after giving birth!! The joys of pregnancy!
I have lactulose here but sickness really bad today so cant face it!! Ive aloe vera vaseline lip balm here so might give that a go. Need to get some wet wipes too as toilet roll is like fucking sandpaper!!
Please try to persist with the lactulose. I couldn't go before & for 4 days after I had a c section. I was in tears I just kept thinking post pregnancy is just one humiliating event after another 😔 I was about to try a pessary when I was finally able to go, had to keep taking it for a few days after though.
Once I feel better I will take it. Though went again there a bit of Lunch. Much easier to pass as not hard but fuck it still stung like mad. Had to wet some loo roll which helped a bit. Still stinging. Sweating again lol.
Ugh I'm 12 weeks and have hyperemesis so bad diet, barely moving, not enough liquid in me, and I take ondansetron which makes you constipated too...you can imagine how that's working out for me!! . I had my most horrendous poo after about 9 days of nothing which caused an anal fissure and hamaerroids, the anal fissure was the worst pain I have ever been in yet. This is my first pregnancy and I swear to God my reference point for childbirth pain is now anal fissures!! It got a lot better within a week or so thank God, but I still get soreness and bleeding from hard stools and haemerroids. I have been trying to drink more liquid and eat some fruit and veg which has definitely been helping. Trust me I know it's hard when you feel nauseous though.
