Kelly - April 10

Does anyone know if diarrhea is common in early pregnancy? I have not started my period and have been spotting the past 3 days. Today I had diarrhea and thought maybe I am fixing to start my period because I have always heard constipation is a sign, not diarrhea...I am confused, can anyone help>

I don't know if it's an official sign, but I also got diarrhea and was very gassy. Good luck

I had horrible diarrhea for weeks before I ever knew I was pregnant. You might want to check out They have a forum for "Is diarrhea normal in pregnancy?" There are LOTS of posts there with different stories. I personally think it's a huge sign that is overlooked by doctors. You'll see what I mean if you find the forum. Good luck! I know it's not fun, but it'll be worth it in the end.

I was not pregnant--unfortunately. I am in 2ww now after a cycle of clomid. It turns out I did not ovulate. I was so sure I was pregant too. I had all the symptoms except diarrhea (I thought consitpation was a sign). That is why I I asked the question and I guess it can go either way :) Thanks for all your help...maybe this is the month!!! Baby Wishes to all of you!!!

I am too having very bad diarrhea, along with a few other symptoms (fatigue, cravings, irritability). I am very confused, I only had one episode of unprotected sex this month as well as me having very irregular periods, so i don't think i'm pregnant. I am only suspicious because this has not happened before. Any thoughts?

Hi Vanessa, I know fatigue, and all those symptoms are a very good sign of pregnancy. I am experiencing those too. The best thing to do is take the hpt. Even one time of unprotected sex can get you pregnant. Are you ttc? Good luck!

I am having awful diarrhea everytime I eat, and also indigestion. I am trying to conceive and late, breasts are sore...but I have had 2 miscarriages in the past, so I am a little afraid to take a hpt.
