Diahrea during pregnacy
I'm 31/2 months pregnant and have been getting diahrea in the morning for a couple of weeks now. Could I have become lactose intolerant and if I have would it be harmful to keep drinking milk?

Slinx, why don’t you stop taking dairy products for a while and see what happens. I doubt that you’ve become lactose intolerant in the true sense of the word, but the dairy products might be helping on the diarrhoea. You can also take a pectin containing product to help bind the stools and normalise everything again. Good luck.
