The pain and: Diarrhea need to be evaluated . Any water and electrolyte imbalance during pregnancy will put both the infant and the mother at high risk for complication . The systemic complication of the cause of the diarrhea is also important whether it is due to bacteria , virus or parasites . You need to be evaluated by your doc as soon as possible . Good luck.
