Whole30 Certified Coach littleg Posted January 21, 2017 Whole30 Certified Coach Share Posted January 21, 2017 2 weeks post partum and of course I need help with poop After 1 poop in 8 days after a 48 hour induction and subsequent labor... I'm now back to my usual 1x a day in the morning routine. But its like rabbit pellets and not super comfy with the wonderful hemorrhoids that I was lucky enough to get I don't want to take colace if I can help it because in general I don't like to take medicine. Pre-little man I took magnesium each night and if I wasn't careful I had the opposite problem. I'm now taking a dose higher than I used to (800mg), I'm eating literally POUNDS of fruits (usually apples, which used to help move things along promptly) and veggies, I'm drinking a minimum of 100 oz of fluids a day (homemade seltzer, tea, kombucha <-- probiotics in there too)... I'm not doing a strict W30 right now but I'm avoiding things that I perceive as "constipating" - dairy, rice cakes (my usual deviations from strict compliance). I'm eating a TON of fat too - I've even been eating 1-1.5 tbsp of solid coconut oil each day on an empty stomach because in the past that has emptied me out like an enema! But the rabbit pellets persist! Is this just a rite of passage for post partum and I just need to wait it out or is there something I'm missing? Thanks!
