    Default loose stools threwout pregnancy

    hey guys i know this is a yucky subject but after reading 1 of the other posts about diarrhea causing miscarriage i thought i had better ask just incase.



    Basically i have had loose stools threw out most of my pregnancy i am now 36 weeks and every thing seems to be ok with the baby.
    the diarrhea comes and goes but it seems that every time i make a trip to the toilet for number 2s its quite loose.
    yuck i know

    im just getting concerned because i had the impression that it was supposed to be the other way around.

    any way is this happening to any1 else i could use some insight before my next midwife appointment a week from now.
    thanks

    it is my understanding (people can correct me if i am wrong) that diorrea is quite common during pregnancy, but so long as you are not dehydrating it is not that big a risk. if you are worried you should check with your doctor.

    personally i have been alternating between really soft and hard the whole way though my pregnancy, my doc wasn't concerned and just told me to keep up my fluid intake.

    Misty is correct. Diarrhoea is common in pregnancy. Constipation is also common.
    Diarrhoea can cause miscarrage but it needs to be very bad diarrhoea and over a few days.
    Hope this puts your mind at rest.
