What I didn’t know before birth No.1

There are a LOT of things I was blissfully unaware of prior to birth.  After the birth, the sheer amount of agreement from other mums made me wonder why had no-one warned me?  *Warning this is not for the faint hearted

Numero uno:

Technically this should be number two, as then it would be “exactly what it says on the tin”.  Yes, this is a post about poo.  No one tells you that the chances of you being able to poo properly in the weeks following the birth of your baby are slim to nil.  If you were one of the lucky ones who could poo on cue (sorry), take great comfort in that.  Two weeks after birth I finally passed what can only be described as the iceberg that sank the titanic. Oh mercy, the pain but the sweet sweet relief of it.  It really is a man’s world.  It felt like a second labour, only I was afraid to push in case I burst a stitch.

So there you have it – if you’re lucky to avoid haemorrhoids, the constipation will get you.  If you avoid both, count your lucky stars.

Never underestimate how good it is to poop.
