I’m 35 Weeks Pregnant and Have Diarrhea!

August 24, 2019

I’m 35 weeks pregnant and have diarrhea! I think you overdid the fiber to correct for
the constipation. It isn’t like I had two bowls of oatmeal
to fix constipation and it seems like something is wrong when my body is finally running right. I hope you aren’t eating for two and wondering
why you poop for two. I was only peeing for two until recently. If you were much earlier in the pregnancy,
I’d say the poop generation was due to shifting to a really healthy diet versus your normal
one. No, that’s not it. When you are pregnant, your body is more prone
to various infections. I have had to deal with urinary tract infections
and yeast infections several times. You are also more prone to various food borne
illnesses. Oh, all that stuff morning sickness was supposed
to protect me against. If you have diarrhea, you could have picked
up a food borne illness. However, because you are pregnant, you need
to drink twice as many fluids to stay hydrated. Now I’ll never leave the bathroom. If you are trying to stay hydrated, the stomach
bug may pass. However, if you’ve been dealing with this
for several days, you want medical attention in case it is a severe case or just threatens
your health due to dehydration. I know dehydration can cause kidney stones
in the long term. In the short term, bad dehydration can trigger
labor. As if I need something else on top of this. If you are having bad back pains plus diarrhea,
it could be a sign of early labor. Or the back pains are due to the muscle contractions
as my bowels purge themselves. Early labor involves back pains and stomach
cramps as the uterus starts flexing to push the baby out. Yes, and I can see how that gets mistaken
for indigestion, but this is super-pooping. The muscle contractions also put pressure
on the bowels and lead to a lot of pooping too, though it will stop as the contractions
worsen. I know this will sound weird, but it makes
me want to be in labor. The difference between the two is that the
pains will stay as bad or get worse while an infection means the pain remains similar
but the pooping is as bad or worse. So if the pooping stays as bad, go to the
doctor for that, and if the pooping stops but the pain gets worse, go to our chosen
maternity hospital. It certainly isn’t going to be because the
hormones that cause digestive muscles to relax along with tendons and muscles when you’re
pregnant suddenly reverse. I’ve heard that pregnancy can cause new
food sensitivities. When you are in the first trimester, you’re
likely to develop morning sickness. Far fewer people develop food sensitivities
like food allergies. And I thought super oily skin was bad. I’m assuming you haven’t started doubling
up on the pregnancy vitamins because you are in the third trimester, and now the iron in
the vitamins is aggravating your digestive tract. No, just the standard dose. Then if it keeps up, you need to talk to the
doctor, no matter what the cause.
