I'm still having it on and off too for now. I'm 8 weeks now. Gynae said it's normal during pregnancy. But watch out for the no. of times and frequency.

Yes, some pregnancy is accompanied with diarrhea.  It will go away eventually.  As the baby grows, it'll push on your innards and that causes diarrhea and a lot of peeing.

I had it the entire pregnancy both times.  Some women get constipation so I guess it could be worse!

I concur constipation is worse lol.

I am 5 weeks pregnant and have diarrhea off and on. It is considered normal due to the effect of pregnancy hormones on the intestines. Unless you have fever, chills, abdominal pain, blood/mucous in stool or too frequent BMs, then you need to see your doctor.

I'm 6 weeks and yes! I have this symptom right now. It's not fun.

It is very normal. Hormonal changes are the result of the diarrhea. Hope you feel at ease soon.

Yes, I just had it on Sunday but passed by the afternoon. I don't remember having it with my other pregnancies but it definitely is better than being constipated.
