  • if your that worried and need re assurance call your dr but it is very normal to have loose stool when pregnant thats one of the many joys of being preggers one minute no poopys and the next minute to much poopys and sometimes runny poopys lol but its normal and if your not having contractions or bleeding no need to worry..=)

  • Actually during pregnancy women are usually constipated because of the prenates. I would think if you are having loose stool all the time, then talk to doc. If it's only now and then, it's prolly something you ate.

  • heck.. I started out with "loose stools" every day when I was first preggo.. Then Constipation set in around 12 weeks or so.. then back to loose stools, regular stools and then around 36 weeks constipation again. I drank ALOT of Water ( which helps with constipation). It is probably something you ate but be thankful you could even go the bathroom ( beats constipation!) If you don't have contractions or any other "labor signs" then I wouldn't worry.. but call your provider.
