Hey Colette,

Maybe this is what we are all constipated from! LOL I know the feeling of it. We are in the same boat. I think you should call your gyn if you are gaining weight and the pain in your side is worse now. You need to know what is causing these things. I hope you don't mind about the joke. We just need something to make us laugh or even crack a smile. I hope you get to feeling better.

Love ya, Jenny
