Has anyone else had this? I have been in and out of the bathroom all through late afternoon/evening. I thought maybe it was progesterone suppositories, but this will be day 8 of taking those, so I doubt it took this long for any side effect like that to show up. I don't remember this with my other pregnancies. Just curious if maybe this is unrelated to my pregnancy or if any other women have experienced this too. TIA
Yes, I had diarrhoea in my first tri. It would happen for a few days then I wouldn't go for a few days then that cycle continued for a while. I remember being worried about it too because I suffered from constipation only with my first pregnancy. I assume it's hormone related but not really sure. Try not to worry too much, easier said than done I know. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy. xx
Thanks for the answers! That's pretty much what I've been going through: mostly I'm constipated or only go once a day if I'm lucky and then all the sudden yesterday, I was in the bathroom over and over again, kinda worried me! Now that I know you ladies had it too, I'm not as worried
I got this too! It really worried me as I had constipation at first and then I had a week of diarrhea every morning for about a week and the doctor said it's normal and most likely due to stress/worry of the new pregnancy going ok. Rest assured - you're ok!!
LOL! Sounds like weeks 8-11 of my successful pregnancy (and I was worried, too!). I'd recommend some rehydration packets (can get at a drug store/chemist) which are safe in pregnancy, just to replenish the lost water (and you might feel a bit better, too!)
2 things it can be down to... 1) your vitamin tablets or 2) an increase in milk/dairy products. I found out today at 15 weeks that I have developed a mild lactase intolerance due to my increase in dairy since after finding out we were expecting. This can usually be fixed by taking calcium supplements. If it persists longer than 3 days then you should tell your GP/Midwife
