Diarrhea, are you kidding me?!

So I'm nearly 8 weeks now and have felt really nauseous the whole time, no actual sickness but on the verge of it all day! I know that's not as bad as many people though!

Anyway this evening I started having diarrhea too, is this just a pregnancy symptom-I don't remember it from last time but I think I've blanked a lot of this first bit out of my memory! How am I supposed to know if it's pregnancy related or a bug/food/etc? Do I just presume its pregnancy related?!

I'm feeling sorry for myself right now!!

in the list of 'things people dont tellyou' which i do at work when im bored i clearly remember the diarrhea. i was confused because people all talk about constipation but i definatly dont have that!

I had constipation with my first and no diarrhoea at all but with this one I have had it frequently (as much as every day for the majority of the time). It was worrying at first as immediately thought something went but midwife and reading other threads say its just another glamorous side effect of pregnancy for some women. Ask your midwife or check checked by doctor if you are concerned though.

There is a very nasty diarrhoea bug going round here so it may be that yiu're just caught something like that rather than it being pregnancy related.

It is grim though. Hope it passes soon.

I had diarrhea at 6wks. Badly for about a week (nothing stayed in for more than about half an hour and one particularly grim night I had to get up six times in the night. Then about another few weeks of slightly loose bowls. I guess I could have picked up a bug, but it coincided with the onset of nausea and food aversions and I think it was my body's response to the surge of hormones.

I used those oral rehydration salts (diarolyte?) when it was really bad, which helped a lot. And just ate what I could - mostly, plain, beige carby stuff.

Bananas will help block you up, just be careful not to over do them like I did or you will end up with constipation!
