    Loose stools 11th week


    I'm in my 10th-11th week of pregnancy. It's my first one, so I'm very unsure and nervous about a lot of things. I've always been a bit of a hypochondriac, and I've had a bit of an upset tummy today with loose stools.

    Does anybody have any suggestions on what I can do to reduce it?

    Hi Anikoth,

    Congratulations on your first pregnancy!

    Don't worry loose stools can be quite common in the first trimester. I just had it and was asking my OB about it. She suggested just changing things in my diet to see what would make things better. For me, cutting out spicy food and increasing fibre (more soluble and insoluble fibre) seemed to help a little. Cutting out dairy seemed to help sometimes too. Also as I has just gone past 12 weeks, she suggested taking my maternity vitamins every other day as opposed to daily (check with your doctor before you do this as obviously folic acid is important for development).

    Did you eat anything unusual today?

    And it'll go away after a bit, so just hang in there.

    Lucky you I say. I've got the opposite problem. I'm so bloated and full all the time it makes it difficult to eat meals and sleep as its uncomfortable.
