Tomorrow, I am 8 weeks. For the last 2 weeks, I wake up and have to go to bathroom immediately. My stomach hurts, crampy. It's scared me, thinking I am about to m/c. Nope, I have the runs/loose bowels. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br>
I don't eat late at night. I don't eat rich foods at night or anything out of the ordinary. It doesn't matter if I had a full dinner or just snacked on stuff. It makes no difference if I have had 6 quarts of H2O in a day or 3. This sometimes continues as the day goes on...<br><br>
What do I need to eat/do to make it stop?! This was not a problem with DD, just the usual indigestion/constipation at the end of the pregnancy like beginning at week 36.

I have the same exact thing happen to me. My cramps start before I go to bed and sometimes hurt all night until I finally have loose bowels in the a.m. I have found that it happens to me no matter I eat and drink I have am just hoping it is a 1st trimester symptom that goes away with the m/s.

At least I have comfort in knowing that I am not suffering alone. I hope you feel better soon. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/blowkiss.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Blowkiss">

Same here! It's like morning sickness, from the wrong end. I did some searching and looks like it is pretty common. Doesn't make it any easier though.

I had that this am and was thinking it was because I ate too much fruit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">

I should have entitled this post: 'every morning AND every night'. Ugh! I get no relief! It's so uncomfortable, my stomach is in knots. It's like having m/s because eating saltines and drinking H2O makes me feel better at least on a superficial level.<br><br>
At the same time, the symptoms are so strong, I take it as an indicator that this baby is sticking around! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br><br>
I will just keep rubbing my bloated belly...sigh...

I've had a lot of stomach gurgles and loose stools, too. It's been so bad that I've been worried that my body doesn't have time to get all the nutrients out of food before it passes through <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I figure some of it's due to the fact that I haven't been eating any dairy b/c it's so unappealing right now, whereas usually I have yogurt and cheese every day...

That is so bizzare b/c I never ate dairy, but started craving it so had a bit here and there. I realized yesterday that the dairy was making my situation worse! Since I went 100% dairy free again, I have had a much calmer belly. Just goes to show how every body is different <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Oh, that is probably my problem. I started craving dairy and have been off of it because my sensitivity to it. Maybe I should try going of it again.

Since my son has this same thing, I can say that this is probably not a preggie symptom for me. The pedi says there is a tummy bug running around.<br><br>
I am miserable. I don't feel like eating, but I know I do need to. Ack.

I have been eating cheese and yogurt or keifer and it hasn't helped that much. I switched my prenatals though and that made a huge difference. I was taking Rainbow Light Just Once and switched to New Chapter Organics (it's 3x/day) I take 2 in the AM and 1 at night. Today, I am experiencing constipation/small stools. Last night was bad but the was the Mexican food...the price for some greasy goodness.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">
