<p>I'm asking here because there's more traffic than in Health & Healing. </p>
<p><br>
DD (3) went about 2.5 days w/o a bowel movement. We traveled all day yesterday and had to stop several times for her to vomit. I gave her a laxative today (not my first choice, but I was getting worried). She went to the bathroom twice. She just tried to go again, and couldn't. Her tummy is really distended. I don't mean a little bit; it's like a hard balloon. Should I take her to urgent care or the ER? Or should I just wait it out?  </p>

<p>Go in.  You might get seen quicker at urgent care, and if she needs care in the hospital they will call an ambulance, so that would get her there faster too, without a long ER wait.</p>

<p>Thanks! She is better. She got sick after I posted, but she did go to the bathroom. We didn't end up going to the ER, and she seems to feel better now. Traveling really messes with her system.</p>
