I am currently 9 weeks.
Have a bit of an issue.
I have constipation for a couple of days, then will get diarrhoea.
Just worried. Any tips to combat this.
Have tried High fibre cereal and have lots of fruit and vegies. Any other tips? Thanks

  • It’s good that you’ve got the all clear from your gp. Constipation is the worst. AT least you also get diarrhoea to have a cleannout


  • Para choc and up ur fruit and veg comsumption which will also help and extra walk and exercise moves things


  • Constipation is horrible and can be painful. Drink plenty of water!


  • Thanks for everyoones comments. Its actually not really diarrhoea, just soft.
    I spoke to the doctor he said it is just to do with pregnancy hormones.
    I hate feeling constipated though, it just makes me uncomfortable.


  • How’s the progress going on this?


  • Have you talked to a doctor? This sounds unusual.


  • these things go haywire when you are preggers!

    • yes chat to your doc or midwife. they will reassure you or advise vitamin or diet changes.


  • I went through this it lasted for the first three months. To be honest I was too embarrassed to ask my Dr, but when it got too much I drank watered down prune juice, stopped the constipation which in turn stopped the diarrhea.


  • Are you having pregnancy vitamins? They can often cause constipation. I would have a chat to your Dr
