Sorry for the title, but I figured, hey, why not? I have been constipated, I guess, since I can go about 3 days without any movement. But I realized that when I use the epsom salts to get my magnesium, the next day things are moving again. I just wanted to let everyone know. My doula tells me never to use Miralax. Ever. So doing this instead is working for me so far.
I don't think it's true constipation, though, because when things do get going, it's a normal consistency, not hard. SORRY FOR THE TMI!!! I think things are just slow going and the magnesium helps speed them up a bit.
But, word of caution, if I have eaten anything before a bath with the epsom salts, it wants to come up afterward. Usually, even if I have a full stomach, only a little of it comes up and I'm good, but I still get that sick nauseous feeling for about an hour after the bath.
