It's been a while! I have to say that pregnancy has helped my bad IBS-D! I am right at 5 months now. I still "have it", but it has let up some...thank goodness! I'm actually wanting to eat again and I'm not in the bathroom 10 times a day with the "D"! Although, my hair is still shedding awful. Still don't know what that is from...stress, or the IBS. I have also gained weight! (yea for me!) In July, at my worst feeling, I weighed around 110. Not I'm weighing in at 133! Pregnancy has been great for my IBS. I just HOPE that it keeps improving after birth! (fingers crossed!)
Looking back, I have to say that stressing about your bowls caused me much personal torment that I was inflecting on myself. I was constantly worring about it and I had the "what if's"...what if it's this, what if it's that. I had a hard time believing my Dr.'s and I researched it WAY TOO MUCH! My advise is...believe your Dr.'s. trust the tests they give you and their results. RELAX! Try not to stress...take a walk, ride a bike, take a swim. It took a lot of time to realize that your mind can control a lot of how you feel on the inside. I'm not saying your "mind" causes IBS...but it sure can effect it!
Take care all,
