View Full Version : Diarhea, Sorry TMI..
I have had it for 3 weeks now like everytime I go its watery. I have been the hospital when it first started and the baby was fine,she is still moving round heaps its just getting very annoying.
Just wondering if any of you lovely women have had this or know how I can stop it?
There is a medication called DiaStop that works to stop diarrhoea but I have no idea if it's preg safe, and it's not always recommended to stop diarrhoea unless you know the cause, as sometimes the body needs to be getting rid of whatever it is.
Yeah it's getting embarrasing for me as I have to run back in to the house if outside and I can not go out. I do not know what does it. I am waking in the night some nights to go to the toilet as well.
I'd say you need to get on top of it sooner rather than later, as all that activity down there can triger contractions. Have you been back to the doc in the last week or so, or just when it first started?
I went to the hospital when it first started and baby was fine. She is still moving around and stuff. Its just getting annoying and I am scared if I got to the hospital that they will keep me in when I hate the places. I do not want contractions to start either. I am scared! :(
I had this with both my babies. Was horrible. I also suffered constipation as well. One day I would have the runs the next I couldnt get it out! Sorry if tmi!! My middy told me it was a common problem and there wasnt much I could do. Just keep your fluids up, maybe have some gatorade to keep you hydrated. If it does bother you too much just see your gp.
The other reason I am asking is because I never got this at all with my son and now pregnant with a girl it happens lol.. I will see how I am tomw and if its the same then I will go and get checked out again.
Make an appt to see your doc and when you call, ask if they will be likely to need a stool sample. If so, you can call in to pick up a sterile container beforehand which will save you making another appointment to bring one in.
In my experience, hospitals are pretty much pointless for things like this, and yes, they'll keep you in for a while to run tests. Your doc will be able to run the same tests without you needing to sit there and wait for the results.
I'd be more concerned about your own health than baby's right now... diarrhoea can be very draining ('scuse the pun).
Make sure you keep your fluids up in the meantime... if you dehyrate you can cause yourself more problems, like nasty headaches etc, plus you might not be getting enough nutrients if your food is passing too quickly through your body. Short term it's probably fine, but three weeks is getting a bit long to suffer in silence.
