This normally wouldn't stress me too much, except that I think she may have swallowed some Cherry and Olive pits. Not exactly sure how many. Normally she poops twice a day.

Should I be worried?

Do cherry and olive pits cause constipation? Not sure what the corelation you're worried about is.

DD goes through phases of pooping 2x day and of pooping every 3rd day. Not constipated, just not ready to poop it out yet lol...

Well, she normally poops like clockwork; once in the Morning, once in the afternoon, sometimes once at night before bed.
She occasionally poops only once a day, but that's not common.

Now it's been over 48 hours. As I mentioned, this normally wouldn't worry me, but for the fact that she swallowed some cherry and olive pits.

I'm not so much worried about constipation from the pits as I am about intestinal blockage. (or is that the same thing?)

And I wouldn't worry about her having swallowed a few pits, however, I think she may have swallowed several.

Should I stress about this?

She seems normal otherwise, but she doesn't want to sit on the potty.

My toddler sometimes goes a day or two without pooping, then catches up on the second day. If you're worried, though, could you call her doctor or a nurse?

My DD eats cherry pits and has lived to poop again

I would offer some prunes and beans (not together eww!) until your LO poops.

DD also skips days now and I often give her a gentle abdominal massage and say ' you need to poop today'. The tummy voodoo seems to work as several hours later, she poops.

based on what you've said, I can see you're worried. I'd recomend giving fruit, juice, etc & try to work up a poop. maybe even a few sips of coffee. if she gets a tummy ache or fever, or starts puking, see a doctor.

If you have a chiropractor for her, you can go see them as well- whenever DD is constipated, we see the chiro and it usually works.
