Apologies for the gross post topic! Would really appreciate your advice/experience here.
I'm luck enough to be be 6.5 weeks pregnant but have now had diarrhoea (very watery, approx. 6 times/day) for about five days now.
As I'm on holiday, I called my GP a couple of days ago for advice. The receptionist said not to worry, drink loads and take electrolytes. Also she said I could take Imodium. Dr Google shows me it's not advised to take Imodium in early pregnancy, so I'm reluctant.
This seems to persist and as you can imagine I'm getting worried, mostly for my little bean. But then going to a doctor in a country where you don't speak the language and they have other standards of care isn't great either! I'll be home Saturday eve.
I still urinate fairly normally, so I hope that means I'm not dehydrated?
I'm at a loss for what the cause might be, have eaten according to the book and only drunk bottled water. It could of course be food poisoning or a virus, but would they take so long? Can it be the hormones affecting me this badly? Should I be worried about a salmonella or listeria infection? I really only have the diarrhoea, no other symptoms.
Any advice what to do?
