First postpartum poop experiences...

Tiffany • Zöee’s Momma 👶🏽🌸 Baby #2 due June 9, 2022

Had my LO on July 3rd @41 weeks. I haven’t had my first postpartum poop yet. I was going to get a stool softener tomorrow to help out but what I wanted to know from you all was what were your first PPPs like? Did you do anything to make the process easier (i.e. stool softeners, food, drinks?) I know some people have said it’s like giving birth again others say it wasn’t bad at all just uncomfortable but I wanna hear from y’all . I didn’t get an epidural and I also did not tear I read that sometimes that makes a difference in how it may feel ...

UPDATE : literally right after I posted this I felt the urge to poop and did it 😂 it felt like a normal poop didn’t hurt at all but I wanna leave this post up for anyone else who may have the same question one day so feel free to still share experiences
