Is diorhhea a normal side effect, it comes with a lot of abdo pain?

Hi
I have been getting diorhhea for the last week and a few days, going to the toilet about 4 times a day. Is this a normal side effect, also it comes with a lot of abdo pain?
Also i have been getting a lot of what i think is discharge it leaks out and when i go to the toilet it appears to be just clear fluid.
I have a doctors appointment at the end of the week but i am wondering if i should try and bring it forward?

Sarah...
Answer: Hi, Diarrhea or fluid loss is not considered normal during pregnancy. You need to see your GP for a check up. Best wishes, Alex
