  • I don't know how far along you are but if you are 20 wks or more you should go to urgent care and be examined. If you're not yet 20 wks, go to the ER. You may just be sick, you may be dehydrated, you may be pre-eclamptic. Don't wait, go to the DR because you want to make sure for not only the baby but yourself too. Good luck.

  • How far along are you??? I wouldnt say that is normal at all. I remeber having the same issues when i was pregnant with my daughter who is now 7 1/2 and i ended up have toxcemia. I would call your dr right away and tell them your symptoms. DO NOT wait, you could be endangering your little baby or yourself .

  • Go see a dr NOW!! If you are pregnant, regardless of what is causing it, it could wind up hurting the baby. And being OVER hydrated can make some people have diareah, and even "clear" fluids, some of them have stuff in them that cause it... like apple juice, white grape juice, etc.
