Hi all, i have been suffering bad diahrroea after eating and drinking i seem to be going about every 20 mins or so and its like water (sorry tmi) it started yesterday officially but had "upset tum" on sat. Midwife says it cld be my body gearing up for pregnancy but keep hydrated and if it goes on longer than 72 hrs let them/gp know.
The odd thing is there is no pain with it jst bubbling and then needing to go.
If anyone else experienced this before labour how long did yours last and was it like water too? Sorry jst not sure if i have picked up a bug altho feel fine in myself except a bit sore now sad

Very common, don't worry! Your body is clearing out, gearing up muscles and getting ready to get that baby out. I had frequent diarrhoea from 36 weeks. Keep your fluids up and get ready to meet your gorgeous little one.

Really important not to get dehydrated if you're going that often, drink lots
and lots and lots xx

She did say if i still have it tomorro to visit GP but i dnt want to waste their time if its just clearing out. I dnt feel unwell jst really tired.
