Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You can try bisacodyl or ex lax 5 mg 2-3 tabs at a time to help with the bowel movement.
And continue to consume liquids to help with the bowel movement.
Do you have any stomach pain?

Not unusual.
Can be considered as expected response.
Nausea is due to the fluid load and also from the bowel prep.
Common but tolerable side effect.
Yes you should start the second prep earlier.
You should be fine.
Do not worry.
