In brief: Constipation.

Stay well hydrated (at least 8 - 8 ounces glasses of water per day).
Try to get in 5 servings of vegetables & 4 servings of fruit per day – get that fiber in. Stay physically active if possible. There are a number of over the counter laxatives that you can take now to help pass your retained stool.
