Diarrhea?


I know that it's really normal to get constipation in the first trimester, but has anyone else had crazy diarrhea? I've had it 4-5 times today, and usually get it 2-3 times during the day....almost since conception. My PNV have stool softners in them..totally don't need that, but I was getting it before I started taking them. I had gallbladder removal surgery in April of this year, so maybe that's why I've got it...?

I think it is perfectly normal. Pregnancy can affect your bowels either by constipation or Diarrhea.
Just make sure you eat plenty of fibre and drink lots so you dont become dehydrated.

Hi! You are not alone! I had diarrhea for about a week straight! Lately though it has changed and now I am constipated. I talked to my sister who had a baby 4 months ago and she says that she had diarrhea too at the beginning. No worries!!

Yay! thanks y'all...I was getting really worried. I searched around and there was a website that said the BRAT diet was best...gatorade and nothing but bananas, rice, applesauce and toast...does NOT sound appetizing...

I had my gallbladder removed in March, but I dont think it is causeing your diarrhea unless your eatting really fatty foods and it is going right through you so to speak. Watch what your eatting, the reason I say this is since Ive become pregnant, I can not eat certain things without a side effect. Grilled Chicken now gives me diarrhea, and Chinese Food makes me vomitt, so maybe a food yoiu ate before pregnancy was so issue is now one? Id try watching what your eatting, cut one thing at a time and see if that helps? Sorry Im not much help

Yea, after my surgery I had to give up all fried and fatty foods, which is a good thing, but some of that stuff is so yummy! Pretty much anything I eat now sounds really good, but once it's in front of me makes me want to hurl..and I can't eat much of anything. I had a burger today and couldn't even eat HALF of it..and it wasn't a huge burger...I can usually eat a whole one and fries! It did not make me sick though...woo hoo! Just getting really frustrated cause I'm hungry ALL the time..ALL ALL ALL the time, to the point that I'm really sick feeling, but I'm scared to eat cause I get diarrhea no matter what (mostly) and then I feel nauseaus after I eat every time. Ugh...I'm glad I'm pregnant, I really am...but I don't think I'll be doing it again!

There were a couple days in a row where I was getting really sick. I just tried to keep up by drinking Gatorade! Hope this passes soon for you.

My constipation has changed to diarrhea and gas. Someone else told me to stick to the BRAT diet too. I've been eating the apples, but that's about it. I also have been drinks loads of gatorade.

I am so glad I'm not alone! Everything I eat I get the runs. I am 7 weeks pregnant with my third child. My first one is 7, I lost my second to a miscarriage. I am so scared to try and take anything for this because I don't want to harm my baby.
