Its two forty am and I just wish I could go poo and get my stupid little dogs to stop stepping on my boobs! I feel like I'm achy all over. Any home remedies for constipation? The dogs there's not much but shove them off me I know.

Eat or drink prunes. If your don't have any prunes eat something high fiber. Just an FYI I learned the hard way not to let this issue go more than 3days as I ended up in the hospital with contractions and had to have an enema! Give yourself one at home before it goes that far.

haha this gave me a good laugh :) but sounds gross, try massaging the colon area with soap. Works like a charm lol
