I haven't posted on here in awhile, but I'm getting desperate and want to know if I'm alone in this...So I've had IBS-D since high school. It got better but then it got worse after having my galbladder removed. Now, I pretty much have chronic pain and go to the bathroom about 2-3 times a day, though I rarely have D unless I eat something too fatty. I've tried the calcium supplements, they didn't work. In fact, they just made me nauseous and bloated :/. I've tried everything from the pills, the liquid, and chewables.I'm now 25 and pregnant with my first. The first 3 months of the pregnancy were actually the best 3 months since before I was diagnosed with IBS, in that I didn't have any pain or D and could actually eat ice cream. Then the symptoms slowly came back. Now I'm in the third trimester (8 months) and they are worse than ever. Sometimes I just eat plain chicken wrapped in a corn tortilla with watered down juice and my stomach still gurgles and cramps up afterward. The cramps seem to be the most dominant symptom (gas pains/the feeling of having to "go"). Also, sometimes I'll be fine after I eat (like dinner) then I wake up in the middle of the night with the urge to go to the bathroom or with cramps, even though it's hours after I've eaten (this is a new symptom, usually my stomach settles down a few hours after eating and now it doesn't).I'm also having to take iron supplements, which I think are making the pain worse, but I'm anemic so I don't have a choice.I'm just wondering if all this could be worse due to the pregnancy? Or maybe the iron supplements or prenatals I'm having to take? I just think it's odd that the first 3 months I was completely pain/symptom free, and now here I am getting flair-ups every few days...I'm so worried/frustrated because I'm already thin to begin with and I don't want this to hurt the baby's growth.Any tips? Anyone else experience worsening IBS symptoms during their pregnancy?
