Ok, ladies, HUGE TMI warning!
I am really struggling. With DD, I had very bad constipation during the first trimester. I ended up on a daily regimen of stool softeners. Back then I didn't know as much about probiotics as I do now, I didn't take them, but the stool softeners helped so I didn't look into anything else.
Now, I am having the exact opposite problem, loose stools a couple times a day. And it's really urgent too. Once I feel it I have to run to the bathroom, and it's awful. I think I'd rather have the constipation back. This has been going on for about 5 days now.
I've heard that first trimester diarrhea can be some womens' version of morning sickness and last throughout the first trimester. I'm only 6 weeks along (tomorrow), I don't know if I can handle this for 6 more weeks! Does anyone have any experience with this? Is there a probiotic I could take to lessen the symptoms? My doc said I could take Immodium if I wanted, but I really don't want to take anything, especially in the first trimester.
Thoughts?? Advice?? I would greatly appreciate it!
