    Is anyone suffering with this, I usually get v constipated when pregnant but I am having slightly the opposite. I haven't got diarrhea but am having to go more than normal and stomach feels a bit unsettled after I eat. I don't know if its the pregnancy vitamin causing it as I didnt realise I was supposed to take on a full stomach but I am hoping this is somewhat normal to hsve some digestive difficulties? X

    That's true and then you start to doubt yourself because you are different to others xx

    Constipation is from reduced digestion and blood flow

    Some ppl (particularly if have ibs) can be affected by the influx of hormones x

    I had this! I think I even asked a question about it on the pregnancy chat thread. It disappeared after about 2 weeks thankfully and hasn't really returned. I think it was the vitamins causing it for me, a lot of people advised taking it just before bed because they're so known to disrupt your stomach.

    If vitamins are doing that is it worth taking them?
    Surely you're losing goodness from the food you're eating which is more important? X

    Hm, I see your point! I started taking the vitamins when I found out so around the 6 week mark and between the 6-8 it was a little ridiculous, not to the point where I thought I was drastically losing anything but it was an inconvenience. But after that my body seemed to adjust and now I've been taking them whenever in the day and they don't affect me and I think I'm reaping the benefits now e.g. nice, stronger hair!
    I think if you experience it for a couple of weeks and it's still not sorting itself out, even after taking factors into account such as having them on a full stomach and at night for a while, then you should definitely ask your midwife/doctor about it because I know excessive going and diarrhea is definitely not good.

    Thanks everyone for replying, this is so reassuring for me. I have suffered with ibs for years so it could be having an impact. I have doctors on monday so if I still have it then I am going to ask doctor about it xx

    I was exactly the same and still have soft stools, which seem to want to appear first thing in the morning. It seems like going for a number 2 is my morning sickness as often feel much better after it (sorry for tmi). Think I'd prefer a bit loose poo in a morning than throwing up though. The hormones just mess with your digestion and not everyone will get constipation - maybe we've got that to come :( x

    I had really soft stools for the first 7 weeks borderline water sorry tmi! And now I'm completely the opposite constipation is bloody awful! You'd think after year of evolving one of our main bodily functions would be able to cope with a baby x

    I think I spoke too soon and jinxed myself after this morning!
    Hopefully it's an influx of hormones which is always a good sign and thinking of it that way makes me kind of glad it's here ha!
