Things They Don’t Tell You About Motherhood: Deuce


A common side effect of pregnancy is constipation. My doctor gave me stool softeners and my husband helped me look up all kinds of remedies on the internet. We tried natural remedies, different positions, nothing helped. One night a prego craving actually paid off… My craving for a fast food Mexican pizza helped everything move along. From that day on, when I started to feel a too backed up, I’d head to the drive thru. If there is something that would mildly upset your digestive system on any normal day, try it when you get constipated pregnant. It may not be the healthiest food option, but once a week for a little relief can be totally worth it.
