American's say it is fine and good due to the fact that is limits fluid loss, UK advice is to not take it.

It is probably best to avoid it, stay home, rest, drink tonnes and look after your self.

I had campylobacter when 8 1/2 months pregnant. Ended up at emergency dr trying to establish if stomach cramps or labour. They prescribed co-codamol as helps with pain relief and constipates so would help with diarrhoea.

i know, I have IBS and have been desperate for it a few times myself! Sanitary towels placed well back in your pants will catch a bit if you don't make it in time. Sorry, it sucks.

Make sure you wash your hands really really well and good idea to have a separate towel.
