hey i had a scoop of spirulina in my smoothie at the mall yesterday. i am pregnant and felt like i was going to pass out so i just wanted to get something i could drink in the car and get home. it was really good. it was a pb and banana smoothie so i couldnt taste the spirulina and my son split it with me even though it was green!<br><br>
i figured it was ok for pregnancy b/c it is just algea, people and kids eat it all the time, and it would add some nutrition to the smoothie. i searched mdc and didn't really see the answer to my question though.<br><br>
so my question is today i feel sooo exhausted, almost dizzy. i had several bowel movements too. it is supposed to be a powerful antioxidant...is this what antioxidants do?! make you poop all day? lol.<br><br>
but i did have an extremely busy day yesterday. i ran errands alll day. and i mean ALL day. then last night was the only night in the middle of the night i didn't get a snack b/c i was too tired. sounds crazy but i have to have a snack in the middle of the night or i get famished and pretty queazy too. that is what i thought was wrong with me this morning was just extreme hunger.<br><br>
i was going to take a long nap with my toddler but five minutes into the phone woke me up. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> i know cry me a river. thanks for listening.<br><br>
i'm glad all the junk is getting out of my body, but should i pass on the extra boosts to the smoothie next time? if so, what would be a gentler one. they had everything: wheat germ, bee pollen, you name it.

Was spirulina the only thing in the smoothie (in terms of "extras")? So, PB, banana, spirulina ... what kind of base? Spirulina is safe while pregnant, so you might have reacted instead to whatever they used as a smoothie base. Or it could be coincidence too. But I wouldn't think the spirulina would cause upset stomach/diarrhea or exhaustion.

I have had a bit of a stomach bug and my only symptoms are headache , loose bowels,and a bit of nausea. Maybe you have a bug? Or maybe you just needed a good cleaning<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I would drink alot of water. Being dizzy sounds like maybe you just need more fluids.
