Quoting James' Mommy Anna [PSM]:" oh lord i remember the stabbing pains and crying because i couldnt poop! it was terrible!"
I remember my ob coming in and upon seeing my bloated belly, he was like "you will be giving birth soon". I was like "Uh, come again?". Then he proceeded to tell me that I was full of gas and that it was going to feel like I was giving birth but worse because of my incision. He was right. If felt like an alien was trying to rip out of my belly. Ugh, the pain was horrible.
My doctor made me have an enema to move things along. All dignity was lost at that point. lol. They even measure your urine out put to make sure things are working correctly. Nothing like ringing the nurse twice to have her check how much I peed. Thank goodness she was so nice and supportive. I felt like saying "Yay, have I earned my big girl pull-ups now?!?!" LOL
