I'm in my 5 wk of pregnancy and keep reading that constipation is normal in pregnancy, however, I found the opposite... in the last week, I am having MORE bowel movements (sorry!) and the need to go IMMEDIATELY. Anyone else share this?

Yes! My crack is on fire. That is why I have been so grumpy lately I think. Maybe it's something in our vitamin. I'll have to get my nursing book out about diarrhea. I am trying to become a nurse...lucky patients! lol.I'll get back with you.

It is normal. Some girls have the constipation issue early but it is more common later as the bigger uterus puts pressure on the bowel. Preggy hormones can increase frequency of bowel movements, it's not necessarily the vitamins. (Though of course it could be! :-)
