    Hi noodles I read it's normal, Ive also had it 3 times today and once yesterday, apparently its normal though, to do with the hormonal changes!

    I think that it's normal, the only thing to watch out for is if it continues, you may become dehydrated, so you'd better drink plenty of liquids. Hope it eases up for you soon.

    I had this at around 6 weeks to 8 weeks and on and off since then.. m/w said it was normal and due to all the change in hormones.

    Like Clarabelle said, you just need to make sure you drink lots of fluid to keep hydrated.

    I heard your either constipated or you have diarrhea. You can't really do much about it but bare and grin. Sorry hun, hope it gets better soon! :)

    The nurse from NHS direct called me back early hours this morning and told me that it was nothing to worry about. Being pregnant we are prone to lots of bugs as youe body fights for the baby ebforeit fights for you so you can get sick easily. She advised using some antibac handwash (you know the little bottles that you carry around with you) as you may wash your hands after going to the loo put the person before might not and then you touch the door handle and you get their germs.

    I've never taken anything for my IBS as it kinda comes and goes. If I'm stressed then it can really play up and I just avoid the foods that spark off an attack. I've had it since I was 14 so I've learned how to manage it without taking meds for it :)
    As for the cramping that IBS brings... I've suffered with a fair few of those and wondered if they're IBS cramps or not but because I've had this for so long, I know the difference. OH on the other hand gets worried if I double over with an IBS cramp bless him.
