15 weeks pregnant and have started having bad cramping very low — like the pubic bone area. Also have been having some mild diarrhea. How concerned should I be? anyone else experience this?

Thanks all - did call OB and she basically said don’t worry, cramping is normal at this stage and might be aggravated by the GI issue 🤷🏻‍♀️

Been there!!!!!!

I remember having this when pregnant. I think I was further along though. OB told me to keep hydrated and keep them on speed dial basically. I would still call though but in my case I think it was just food poisoning. Resolved in about a week

Not sure about the pain, but I had severe diarrhea for 3 days and I felt super dehydrated. Definitely call your doc. My doc asked me to drink Gatorade and drink clear liquids as much as possible. Yogurt is great too along with apple and banana. You could also take Imodium (OTC) once you check with the doc.

I had bad cramping and it turned out to be dehydration. Called the doctor, told me to drink as much water as possible and rest, and call back in 24 hours if it hadn’t gotten better. I was better in about 30 hours. Best to call the OB.

Oh and in case it’s not obvious: take sick days today and tomorrow as needed to rest and relax. You can just say you are sick, no need to get into details unless you want to

Welcome to aches and pains over every single thing! Yay! 👀

Not confession but asking for advice: I have a sibling who, since childhood, thinks that my mom favors me more than her. For example, if she’s eating smth and my mom goes ‘we’ll leave some for you’ to me in front of her, she would get mad at her and show temper tantrums. She has told my mom how she feels too but I think she’s getting mad at very trivial things? I don’t know if she hates me or is jealous of me since I’m the supposed favored child. Should I just keep pretending everything’s ok?
