  • You will be fine!! You will not hurt the baby, the baby is very well protected inside of you!! I had diarrhea all through out my pregnancy, I have ulcerative colitis though! Hope you feel better soon!

  • I don't think it's part of morning sickness. But its ok. Just make sure you stay hydrated!!!! You can always call the dr if you are worried. GL

  • That's normal. You're not going to hurt the baby by using the stomach muscles you use to poop. It's perfectly fine to go naturally how your body would normally go.

  • No, you won't hurt the baby by using those muscles. However, you can get dehydrated from diarrhea, and if you're sick for more than a day or two, I'd go to the Dr.

  • Totally Normal I had the same thing with this pregnancy(10 1/2 weeks) my dr told me to watch what I ate(blander diet limit milk if it makes it worse and stay hydrated.) and it should resolve it self. Gotta Love all these lovely(grr) hormones. Congrats on your pregnancy. :)
