In brief: Pregnant IBS change
Many people think they have irritable bowel syndrome (ibs).
They might have other milder conditions or possibly an early stage of a more serious condition. Keeping a food diary and discussing symptoms with an OB provider, gastroenterologist or nutritionist are good steps toward confirming the diagnosis, getting adequate nourishment for mom and baby and controlling symptoms.
