Diarrhea around 6 weeks anyone?


Suffered an awful bout of diarrhea just now and it smelled horrible. I haven't felt unwell apart from the tiredness I have felt since getting pregnant and the on and off nausea which started a couple of days ago so putting this down to another lovely side effect of pregnancy.

Just wondered how many others had suffered with it??

oooH yes! It was terrible. Lots of wind too, so rather explosive
Seems to have cleared up now, thank goodness.

Hi. I was standing in the kitchen yesterday morning, doing the usual cleanup stuff, when all of a sudden...... I had to run for the toilet. And I do mean RUN. Luckily I made it in time. Nothing like that since then, but phew, that was close.

Glad there seem to be a few others!

Kodi I don't think it is a "common" symptom of pregnancy as constipation seems to be the more common bowel issue but I've read it can happen on and off through pregnancy and the only time to worry is if it happens 3 times a day for more than one day - then it could be a tummy bug or something so best to see your GP or midwife if that's the case.

I read that even a regular tummy bug isn't usually a cause for concern but to make sure you keep up fluids and eat as soon as you're able to avoiding spicy or greasy foods. Also recommended to take a probiotic drink or yoghurt to help (I've just had some probiotic natural yoghurt)
