Re: is diarrhea a sign of a miscarriage

I have never heard of it being a sign for miscarriage before. A lot of women get constipated during pg, but just as many women get diarrhea throughout their pg. I was one of the diarrhea women I had it almost all throughout the pg. My OB said it was almost as common as constipation. So I wouldn't worry about it much. In fact, worrying a lot of times makes diarrhea worse!

2 BIG signs of miscarriage are cramping and bleeding together. Other than that, there aren't really any other big signs that the doctors tell you to look for.

Good luck and try not to worry!

I would call your doctor and ask them. You should drink gatorade or something with elecrolites so you dont get dehydrated. I think I had heard that a some women's BM change when you get pregnant or maybe you ate something bad.

Re: is diarrhea a sign of a miscarriage

i will say that i was told by my doctor once that diarea can somtimes be helpfull in pregnancy, he said that it helps to protect the baby because somtimes somthing you can injest can be hard on the baby so diarea is a way to quickly detox your body of the bad stuff, but in some cases its just the flu, and in that id you get a fever over 102 you should go tothe hospital... i have times where im constipated, and others where i have diarea, call the doctor if your worryed, but im sure you will be fine, congrats on the pregnancy.
