Constipated then diarrhea!?

Postby Artemis » Wed May 06, 2015 7:53 am

Sorry for the TMI. I'm 5+4 weeks

I've been constipated since my bfp. I used to go regulary 2-3 times a day, then it was a pathetic one time a day (hardly anything!) but this morning I woke up with extreme nausea & diarrhea like woahhh.. 4 times already this Am. It's not painful like food poisoning, and I eat very healthy (when I can eat thanks to nausea) so I don't think it's from my diet. I have yet to vomit, but I'm feeling the nausea. Think it's normal for this kind of "morning sickness" to happen out the other end?

Thanks girls :)

Yep you will get diarrhea for a few weeks then constipation later when your hcg levels out. It sucks but it is normal :)

How lovely lol! Thank you Sumia. At least this made the bloat disappear so I can hide my belly a while longer!

I will also suggest that when the constipation comes back, start taking stool softeners. I just started taking them at 17 weeks and I wish I did earlier. There we so many times that I had really painful intestinal gas and being backed up pains. When I went it was like I had a few little rabbit pellets.. but now its finally feels like I am able to go more regularly. Good luck and Congrats on your BFP!

Heh. Yeah... from 3+5 through 4+3 I was pretty much the one.... and lately I've been the other. Been doing BRAT diet this week to try to help the situation.

hahaha im not the only one that calls it rabbit poop.

Im normally always constipated. But I have been going back and forth too. It was so painful sat that I took a laxative before bed to get it all out. I could feel the air moving in my intestines when I breathed in and out. I showed my sister and she was grossed out.

I think its good to start a Colace regimen try and avoid the butt issues that come with pregnancy. The added iron we take also causes us to back up.
