Sorry Question About Bathroom Habits

I read everyone talking about being constipated during pregnancy. I am having the opposite problem. I am having a bowel movement 3-4 times a day. Granted I am eating more fiber than usual because I am really wanting toast right now and eating oatmeal in the mornings. Should I be concerned? I am in my 7 week.

No you shouldn't be concerned. Alot of women the run when pregnant. I myself can be constipated one week and the other with the runs. I asked the doctor and she said it was normal.

Thanks, this will be my fifth pregnancy (two successful pregnancies and then two miscarriages). I'm a little on edge at the slightest sign of something odd. My youngest is two and half but don't remember having this with the other two. Thanks for the input.

I am secretly jelous of you, because I am soooo constipated right now. I am consuming way too much food, and non of it is coming out of me.

brooke- don't feel bad I am having the same problem. My doc told me to take Metamucil. I take the capsules because I cannot stomach the taste of the powder you mix with water.

Hey Cabbie. I am also going more than I did before I became pregnant. But I have also been eating lots of fruits and fiber everyday. I do have a weird question....I was eating strawberries and a couple of hours later it didn't come up but it came out the other end just as I ate them. Do you think this is normal?
