Hello Nala, thank you for asking.
Diarrhea is a change in the frequency of bowel movements and consistency of faeces (stool). The frequency of bowel movements that are more than 3-5 times a day can be considered as diarrhea. Its consistency changes from solid to soft or even liquid. Diarrhea is generally caused by:
Infection of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites. Diarrhea that has not been more than 1-2 weeks is generally due to rotavirus infection. Viral diarrhea can improve on its own, provided the body has good immunity. Diarrhea that has lasted more than 2 weeks is generally caused by causes other than viruses. Stool is often accompanied by mucus or blood spots, and there is severe heartburn.
Irritable bowel syndrome. Conditions where no infection is found, there are no abnormalities in the structure of the digestive tract, but there is diarrhea or nausea and vomiting. The onset can be triggered by psychological stress, physical exhaustion, or other situations.
Colitis (infection of the large intestine). Generally accompanied by a fairly heavy heartburn and bloody bowel movements.
Allergy to protein in certain foods.
Diarrhea during pregnancy certainly has a risk. Dehydration can occur, and if you are dehydrated, then the flow of nutrients and oxygen to the fetus is disrupted. Nutrients absorbed by your digestive tract are reduced, so the fetus does not get enough nutrition.
You should consult this problem with your doctor. The doctor may need to analyze blood and stool samples to determine the presence or absence of infection. Therapy is focused on replacing lost fluids. You should drink 200 ml ORS (1 cup) after every bowel movement. Get enough rest, try bed rest. Avoid foods that are too spicy, oily, and spicy and sour.
Regarding shortness of breath in pregnancy, it can still be said to be reasonable especially before the 2nd or 3rd trimester. Growth of the fetus and uterus will push the respiratory and lung muscles, so that someone feels tightness. However, it is also possible that shortness of breath may be caused by other diseases such as stomach, heart, or lung disorders. Therefore, you should consult with your doctor directly.
We hope you find the right solution soon. Regards.
