Severe Diarrhea

I was just wondering if anyone had severe diarrhea at the beginning of their pregnancy.  I do not know if I am pregnant yet, although all signs point to it, and im waiting to get in to the doctor.  I know ive heard a lot about people being constipated, but not me.  Just wondering if im just weird or anyone else experienced the same thing.

Yes, I have and know others who have too. This pregnancy I had terrible diahrea when I was around 4-5 weeks and didn't know I was preg yet. Then I got extremely constipated week 7 - week 16. Your stomach can get all messed up right at the beginning of pregnancy.

Everyone and each body reacts differently to pregnancy.  I would just say be careful not to get dehydrated as I do not think this would be good during the beginning of a pregnancy.  Use the BRAT (banana, rice, applesauce and toast) diet and drink plenty of fluids and you should be fine.  Good luck and lots of baby dust.

Yeah, tell him glowing definitely doesn't start during the first trimester usually. That will come when you get around 20 weeks or so.

I am the reverse, I am 5 weeks (in two days) and I started with terrible constipation and bloating, now I have the other dilema. DH said tonight, he thought I would "glow" when pg. I told him I will once my tummy and I start to agree on things again :)

wow. I may not be pregnant, not sure yet. But if I am pregnant I thought it was the stomach virus, but it didnt last long enough only a few hours. Maybe it was the morning sickness, could it have been I would have only been 1 week 1 day. Is it it possible? I am so confused. I go to the gyno on the 27th.
