Is diarrhea during the 1st trimester normal/okay?

This is my 5th pregnancy but first with this problem. I'm 8 1/2 weeks pregnant and I've had diarrhea (accompanied by stomah cramps) daily for over a week now. It sometimes hits during the day but consistently gets me every night when I get in to bed. I'm planning to switch practitioners so I haven't seen anyone yet with thus pregnancy. Hoping to get some insight here! :)

  • I should add that my diet is really sporadic as I am very sick, but that is no different than any of my previous pregnancies.

  • You should be fine and so should the baby just make sure you drink more water because you loose a lot of it when you have diarrhea. Hope you feel better soon. Try eating more bland foods to see if that helps with it.

  • It can be normal and is sometimes a result of hormones.
