I'm 21 weeks and I've got (sorry if TMI) loose bowls and seem to be going about four times a day and have the most awful farts. I think it is making me more exhausted!
Anyone else? I had a gastro bug that caused diarrhoea but latest test shows it is all gone.
Any ideas to help slow it down? Seeing GP again tomorrow

I had something similar. The Mumsnet massive told me it was because my bowel was being squashed up by growing baby and didn't have room for anything harder!

Thanks both.
I've had it for ages and just feeling a bit weary of all these symptoms. Baby isn't that big yet is it? Crickey!
trying with fluids but still feel a big sick so difficult to get enough fluids in...

wellbalanced -you tried some actimel or other kind of lactobifidus supplement ? sorted me out (had both types of problem hmm)

Take actimel every morning, eat and drink well and nothing seems so budge it!!
Been docs 2day so hoping the fybogel and lactolose work-but they taste disgusting!!!
