Any of those preps always completely destroy me (done it 3 times). Just gotta push through until its over. I hope you are doing well. The prepping is definitely always the worse part for me. I always just gotta have mindless tv or movies going to help me ignore the pain and grumbling in my stomach. Heating pads help me. I also have my boyfriend brush my hair or rub my back to give my mind something to concentrate on when the pain is really bad. Also, hygiene/baby wipes and desitin cream for the soreness. Else wise, its just about
trying to find things to do to that keep your mind occupied. Really a mind over matter moment.
