  • I just found out today that I am pregnant, and I have had diarhea for a couple days now. So I think yes, it could be a symptom.

  • I know this is TMI... I had the worst gas *ever*.... :( Not exactly joyous. Since women are all so different and your body is going through a bunch of changes I'm sure stomach issues are certainly a possibility.

  • I did for the first 3 months with my last pregnancy. It was awful. The Doc kept asking me if I was eating right because I was losing weight.

  • I asked my midwives because I had really loose BMs in pregnancy (throughout, not just early). She explained how the surging hormones do all kinds of things and sometimes diarrhea is a side-effect. It sure was different then than any other time in my life!
    (Many women complain of constipation~ or prenatal pills constipating them, not I!)

  • I'm sure it could be. Pregnancy sure affects us all differently.

  • Yes! I had diarrhea, gas, and period-like cramps in the first few weeks I was pregnant. I thought it was weird, as I've never heard of anyone having those symptoms. It went away after a couple weeks.
