In brief: It's normal

It's normal to have bowel movement once per day in the morning.
If it's hard for you to do that, eating more fruits and vegetables, consume more fibers and most importantly, drink lots of water will help. There are also over the counter laxatives our stool softeners that you can take to help. Good luck.

see your doctor kizzy. there are so many things it could be but a partial bowel blockage is on the list. too be safe you should see the doc for an exam, possible imaging studies and maybe referrals to specialists

In brief: May be normal

If you have a bowel movement daily, that is normal.
If you have constipation, you may try fiber supplement like metamucil.
