Loose stools sign of miscarriage?(TMI)

So recently I've been pretty constipated well for the last 5 weeks. I'm 10 weeks now. But recently I've had pretty lose stools not like diarreah but not solid either (Sorry TMI) I've had 1 everyday so not like all day. I read on that some moms who experienced this had a m/c has this happened to any of you and what was the outcome? I've been eating regular food nothing with extra fiber since my stools have changed and it's still loose. Please help.

  • This is a sign of absolutely nothing. Please stop worrying, stop reading those sights and relax. Right now, you have no signs that anything is wrong. just trust in that. Loose stools can be a change in fibre, in the heat/coolness of you environment, whether you ate spicy foods, even if you accidently swallowed some chlorine water if you went swimming. You are fine, relax

  • Your prenatals may have a hidden laxative in it so switch to naturemade if you can, there version of prenatals is good.

  • same thing happened to me. doc told me that when you get pregnant, your hormones help everything just move quicker... often resulting in loose stools.
