Who Does Number 2 Work For?

Pregnancy has a lot of unpleasant symptoms. I've experienced a wide array of the normal ones, and a few of the abnormal ones. The normal ones were your standard nausea, exhaustion, aversions to certain food, assorted back pains, etc.

One of the more disconcerting side effects is perhaps best illustrated by this Austin Powers clip, "Who does number 2 work for?" I think of it regularly. Actually, not as regularly as I'd like. More like every other day. If I'm lucky.

That was hilarious!! Oh, uh, and, good luck to you! As a friend used to say, "there's always more room out than in". . ..

oh my! :-)

Are you getting enough fiber? Is it ok for you to add a fiber supplement into your diet? It might help.

You could also try eating more apples or drinking apple cider - which can have miracle colon cleansing properties.

Another thing you might want to try is sipping hot water - plain or with lemon - in the morning when you wake up.

Yeah, I *wish* it were diet related.
I have been chugging apple juice and eating hummus and things like that. It's just that my body is totally jacked up. Ah, pregnancy.

Wait till the little bugger starts camping out on your bladder.

Rebecca, that happened yesterday. I must have peed 25 times. She's moved back up today though. I've only peed about six times. ;)

Wow we are so alike! Congrats on finding out it's a girl - that is so exciting :-) Ah yes, everything from the UU to the no poo to the contractions...I hope that you are very "regular" soon, LOL! Minus the contractions of course :-) So glad that the ultrasound went well - and I can't believe you're 20 weeks already!
