Had to take a laxative. I feel like a bad mom.


I had no other option. I threw up from constipation earlier in the week. It got worse and worse. I googled “bisacodyl 5 mg during pregnancy” and no article I read said that there was effects. I took it and I’m so relieved. I know it can’t be a habit but it was becoming an emergency. I tried everything- miralax for days, tons of water, tons of fiber, everything. Now I feel like I’m already a bad mom for doing it since it isn’t recommended to take them.
