Don't overanalyse your symptoms...seems a norm to me. I'll go first thing in the morning either before breakfast or afterward...sometimes in a hurry or not so much..mostly depending on what I ate and how much I ate the night before or if I have any gas when the urge comes.
But, when I'm flaring, I would expect to go right away upon rising....that's been the norm for me.
I have a huge expectation to go shortly after I wake up or after I have breakfast....that's what I prefer...meaning the expectation is the habit and better for me. Therefore...the norm.
