  • I would definitly call your OB. Maybe they can help to see if there is something that can help with the tummy issue's. Sounds like something didnt agree with you and your having a hard time with it. I had problems like that during the first few months of my pregnancy.

  • morning sickness usually starts around 6 weeks. your digestion also slows down so it's very common to get a lot of gas and if you don't release it, it can get to be very painful! sometimes you don't even realize it. Call your health care provider with any questions and to put your mind at ease. Worrying about things and stress are the worst things you can do for your body and your baby. Don't ever feel foolish for asking your healthcare provider a question, especially if this is your first pregnancy. Utilize them, that's what they are there for and why they get paid a lot.

  • call your dr just in case... its not a normal pregnancy symptom but you can get sick easily when you're pregnant...
    i just asked my dr about diarrhea and he said sometimes your spleen can act up when your pregnant and he asked if I was having pain in my right side- i'm not so he ruled that out and told me to just stay hydrated and stay away from foods with extra bran added in (like those yogurts or fiber one bars, etc... which i was eating because i was having the opposite problem for a while too)

  • I would call your doctor just in case BUT

    *Rising hormones can cause tummy trouble (gas, constipation, diarrhea)
    *Prenatal vitamins can take awhile to get used to.
    *Your stomach will react differently to foods that may not have bothered you before.
    *Pregnancy can cause IBS also and this will give you bouts of diarrhea, constipation, horrible gas pains, etc. I have IBS to begin with and pregnancy makes it worse.
    *You may have eaten something bad or have a minor bug.

    Again just drink lots of water, eat bananas, toast, and other "bland" foods, and give your doctor a call just to be on the safe side. Feel better soon!
