    Can I tell you something embarrassing?

    We've been on holiday for the past week - and drove back this evening. (Fantastic luck with the weather - so lovely).

    And... for three hours I sat in the front seat of the car, needing a poo. :blush:

    Eventually, I admited defeat, and asked DH to pull into Fleet Services (a Service Station on the M3 motorway in England)

    And I head off to the toilet... Lock myself in my cubicle... sit down and...

    Three hours of sitting squashed up in the car has made my bowel go to sleep and lock solid

    I can't push - and I can't go

    Ten minutes later, and I'm still huffing, puffing and panting, and still no closer to relief

    Another ten minutes later, and I'm having to drag my full bowel back to the car, to sit back in that front seat, and endure the most uncomfortable car journey back home ever! :blush:

    Hope you get some relief soon hun. Constipation is not nice at all, bless x

    I know it's difficult to do this sometimes but when you feel like you need to go, you should try and go straight away - a bit difficult when you're in a car but good info for the future xx

    It was like having the worst case of constipation imaginable - but when I tried really hard to go, I couldn't make the muscles push properly!

    Then somebody used the next cubicle, whilst I was trying (but unable) to go - and stagefright kicked in!

    So uncomfortable!

    It must be something about this trimester because I never suffer with constipation an I'm so bad at the moment! After 3 days of not going I text my mum and she suggested I give things a hand using my finger or a SPOON!!??? I was like I'm desperate but that's going too far....lol TMI!?!

    Oh my! Hahah sorry made me giggle! Finger or a spoon... Haha.
    I suffer from ibs used to get really stodged up alot so I sympathise with you all!
    I haven't got constipation (yet) . Is fybogel safe in pregnancy?? I used to take it years back and use to help. It's more gentle than laxatives (you don't get stuck on the loo for ages) it just gently helps move things along.

    Also I hear that mums put Vaseline round baby's bums when they can't get it out... But that's only for when it's trying to get out and needs a little help. :L (TMI) orange juice every morning can help, or a coffee in the morning.

    Also did you ladies know that we have this button between our bum and Vagina opening. (Skin)
    When your trying to go and you know that poop is like almost out.. Push that in and it helps push it out.. Haha

    ROFL, jeez poo button and spoon!

    Same boat here. I had a prelude to a birthing experience yesterday. Had to go and have a lie down afterwards to recover.

    Oh poor you!!! It is the worst isn't it.

    How difficult is it? Try not to push/strain too hard if you can help it!
