Stomach cramps and diarrhea @ 4 weeks? Sorry TMI


Hi! Hoping others out there are having similar issues? I know and have experienced constipation with pregnancy, but this time around I'm having severe diarrhea (alternating watery and loose stools) accompanied by cramps... as if I have a stomach flu. Nothing I eat seems to agree with me. Also having bad night sweats. I am only 4 weeks so it seems kind of early to be experiencing this, and it's also a strange symptom that I don't usually hear about. Has anyone else experienced this? What causes it and what can I do to relieve it?? Thanks. xx

I have definitely been having diarrhea!! Every morning, either one or two times each morning, over the last week. I'm almost 5 weeks pregnant. I read some place that it's some type of morning sickness, but I dont know if that's actually true... Try not to worry, though!! I think it's common!!

I had that too until a bout a week ago and it turned in to full blown morning sickness, cant keep anything down! I hope its not a sign of things to come, but just remember that your doctor is there for a reason and if you can't get it under control go and see him. Hope you feel better soon! x

i'm alternating between loose and constipation, doesn't matter what i eat either. I have mild IBS which is affected by hormones, so think that might be whats causing mine, also my stomach is quite bloated

Thanks everyone. I didn't have any of this first time around so I've been a little freaked out. I wonder if part of it is due to nerves/stress, I know that I went through a wide range of emotions when I found out, but mostly anxiety and nervousness-- just about the pregnancy and everything. The cramps really scared me, and wasn't sure this one would stick. But I'm glad to see that all of this is common, hope that it goes away though.

Good luck and hope you all have happy and healthy pregnancies!

Hey! I have had the exact same symptoms for about a week now, I'm 5 weeks pregnant today. Its starting to get annoying! I had constipation with the first pregnancy so this is definitely much different. I also have been waking up every night soaking wet with sweat. I'm hoping it goes away soon!

I also have had a terrible cold/flu thing this week with laryngitis so I'm wondering if that's contributing. What a way to start the pregnancy huh??

OMG lolomom, sounds like we're in the same boat. I had constipation w/ my first pregnancy too. I know, it does make you wonder if it could be a viral thing... I did read somewhere that constipation is due to the fluctuating hormones, but diarrhea in pregnancy is most often due to bacteria. Maybe it's our bodies literally ridding and cleaning themselves out for the baby? LOL I know we're not off to a good start, but hoping it gets better!!
