Question by : Is Diarrhea common during pregnancy?
I’m 4 month pregnant, 15-16 weeks pregnant and last night I had pre-cooked shrimp w/dip (the frozen pre-cooked ones u eat cold)… it’s my favourite n i only had about 2 pieces thats it!! this morning i started getting cramps n had diarrhea.. the cramps finally went away after the washroom! still little tummy achs but im good, is diarrhea common during pregnancy? or could I have had a food virus?! I’m worried… i know theres certain seafoods u can’t eat, but i only had 2 pieces of small shrimp! no bleedings or vomiting or anything, just little cramps n stomach achs. Wondering if its normal… someone with a decent answer please! from your own experience! I’m a bit worried after the cramps! thanks alot!

No it isn’t common, but it is very common to get easily ill and there are plenty of ways of getting food poisoning even if you aren’t pregnant. As long as you get well soon you’re fine.
