I'm about 8 weeks pregnant and i've been diagnosed with IBS for about 8 yrs now. Well, along with my pregnancy has came overwhelming bouts of D, as well as a "little" constipation. Now my doctor tells me that D isn't a common side effect of pregnancy... so it's gotta be my IBS?!??!? Acting up. Will it be this bad throughout my entire pregnancy?? I'm going crazy. Has anyone else expierenced this problem?? Any tips?? Is this abnormal?? I'm scared a lttle.....

Just make sure you drink lots of water. I have 3 kids, and my diarhhea went away when I was pregnant, and at the end of the pregnancies I got terribly constipated. So I started drinking TONS of water, and it helped. Good luck, and CONGRATULATIONS!!
