Not abnormal: While everyone, of course, does not develop diarrhea during pregnancy it is actually quite common to do so. Dietary changes, new food sensitivities, prenatal vitamins and hormonal changes all contribute. But just as often it is due to non-pregnancy causes such as infection/virus. Most often it will subside on its own; if lasts more than a few days, contact your OB. Stay well-hydrated!
