Gross subject, I know, but I'm struggling. For about a week, I've been having diarrhea when I first wake up in the morning. For the last couple days, it's been multiple times in a day. I'm wondering what's to blame - pregnancy in general, my prenatal vitamins, something else? I'm taking Rainbow Light prenatals, which are supposedly easy on the stomach. Is anyone else experiencing this unfortunate symptom?
I don't have exactly diarrhea, but I definitely have loose stools. I have had this with all of my pregnancies. Most mornings I have to get out of bed before I would like to because I have to go It is annoying, but I think it is *much* better than the alternative of constipation. I have always considered myself lucky. I don't think it is vitamin related as I take the same whether I am pg or not. I think it is pregnancy related (at least it is for me).
I stopped taking all my vitamins (including Rainbow Light) due to gagging and throwing them up. Rgh. Taking DS's Rainbow Light chewable and my diarrhea is now gone! It took a couple of days off the vitamins but wow, that's what was causing it!
Now I just have to figure out which it was: Rainbow Light, DHA, Calcium, or Iron.
