The Lesson Is Stool Softeners (Edited)
Pregnancy can cause constipation. Codeine can cause constipation. The two in tandem, well, pretty much guarantees constipation.
I was, ahem, using the loo when I looked down and saw bright red blood in the toilet. My heart stopped and I heard myself gasp. After two miscarriages, bright red blood scares the crap out of me. It took me a few seconds to realize that it was not coming from my bajingo, but instead was due to, uh, constipation.
Then the adrenaline hit and I started shaking and threw up.
It’s the only time in my life I was actually glad my ass was bleeding.
Pregnancy is so glamorous.
Edited to Add: I am not making this up. I could not make this up. Someone typed in this phrase a few days ago and found my blog: “do miscarriages go through the butthole?” This was before I put this post up. Yeah.
