  • how far along are you? I was like that in the early part of my pregnancy. make sure to keep yourself hydrated and eat a very well balanced diet

  • I have cramps sometimes, but other times I just have to pee and it comes along with it. I do get hot flashes just before I go though.

  • Is it actually diarrhea (like 5-10 times per day) or do you just have loose stools?
    Do you also have stomach cramping or bloody stool, or low grade fever?
    More fiber and drinking extra water never hurts anyone, and some probiotics can help regulate things (either in the Activia type yogurts or the chewable tablets you can get OTC). You might want to call your dr if you have any other symptoms and see if you should be seen.
