    Ive been like that on and off (swapping between the constipation and the runs)all the way through so far, I think it's normal, but if your are concerned, get it checked x

    I'm the same, loose bowels every time I eat hot food. Was like this all the way through the 1st trimester when I was pregnant with my son, and the same is happening again this time.

    Its bloody horrible, I know. But its a lot better than constipation!!

    Mine are not watery, but definitely not as solid as they were pre-pregnancy. Not to be too gross and detailed, but it is like a paste, or shredded poop if that makes any sense. I've been eating a lot of carrots (?!) and that seems to help.

    My landlord brought me cake with prune filling last night... I wanted to be polite so I ate a small piece. BIG MISTAKE OMG OMG OMG.

    I had horrible loose bowel movements last week. Two days of yuckiness so I emailed my Midwife and she said so long as I kept hydrated and was not running a fever or vomiting, that it would just be diet related and to not worry. She asked me to call her back if I was feeling really ill along with my toilet issues LOL It went away after I balanced my meals. Some days are better than others, but I much prefer a looser bowel movement than constipation. Can't win them all :dohh:

    I'm nowhere near as far along as you but I am usually quite constipated but ever since I got my bfp I have had bowel movement at least once a day and it's been very loose!

    I was constipated pretty much all the time from before BFP to about 10 days ago, now it swaps over from constipated to cow pats - lol

    Swapping between constipated and cow pats along with some lovely gas. Such a pleasant part of pregnancy - not!
