Have diarrhea or be constipated? I was very constipated with my last 2 pregnancies but this one I have had diahrha a lot. I am trying to be thankful its not the other way around but I like my juices n fruits. Plus I have been pretty good about drinking water with this one.

I wish I had diarrhea. I always have had really bad constipation and it's been terrible this pregnancy. I don't drink enough water, but I just can't force that much of it down - and I drink a lot of milk and eat a lot of dairy so I think that just makes it worse. The worst I've ever had it was right after I gave birth to DS and they gave me colace for it, but it was still the most horrible thing ever for a couple of weeks, especially with the episiotomy and feeling like I was going to rip in half anyway - ugh, I think I managed to forget about that, pray it's not as bad this time around - or maybe I will go for the c-section after all!

I've been really lucky so far, but if I had to choose the lesser of 2 evils I think I'd go for diarrhea. The farther along I get into this pregnancy the more I realize how bad *** every single woman who has been through it before is. We are pretty awesome.

Neither!! LOL!!! I guess I would choose the runs though.

Right now I swing between the two constantly.. (constipated for 3 days, runs for a day, constipated for 3, etc etc).. So much fun.

I've had both this pregnancy, and I would choose constipation if I had to.

Ugh... I guess you could make the argument that it feels like progress is being made with diarrhea, but it just hurts so much if it lasts very long. It would also depend on whether or not I was working/very busy... my life is so laid back as is, it wouldn't be a problem for me to just hang out near a toilet. But if I were working?! Ugh... awkward. Duration is also a factor... I only experienced constipation once, very early on, and it lasted 3 days. It was pretty awful, but diarrhea for 3 days would be extremely uncomfortable. There are so many things to consider!

Constipated I hate pooping at work. I drink a cup of coffee on the weekends when I need a bowel movement.

I was terribly constipated when pregnant with DD so I would pick diarrhea every time. Constipation is the worst!!

I have to side with the majority and go for the runs ". I've had a few bouts with constipation so far, and it is NOT fun! I'd rather go with the flow than stick with the slow, lol!
