I know that this is but everytime I need to have a BM I cramp like I am going to start my period. Is this normal? I have done so well for 3 weeks now and all of a sudden I am sore. I also have this pinching sensation on my right side about 2-3 inches from my belly button. Has anyone else had this?

hey gladtoknow

I had that happen the 1st two weeks and it went away, as you I had an enlarged uterus and it was so big that a couple of my organs (intestines) were pushed up. Everything is settling in and finding its place. Try taking a stool softner to help smooth things out.
As for the pinching I still have it and I am 4 weeks today. I think it may be the muscles and nerves trying to repair after trauma. I am sure this too will pass. Hope that helps you, stay well

I think the gas pain was the most uncomfortable feeling. You need to give it all time to settle and everything to reposition themselves. I agree with Dominque a stool softner will keep you somewhat regular, it won't stop the pains but it helps it along.

Speedy recovery

I took a stool softener for the first 4 weeks. It really helped me with that discomfort you are describing. I am at week 6 today and I have no more cramping even without the stool softener. Hang in there!
