    Good afternoon. Sorry about that. You have to note that during pregnancy, your body physiology changes. The increased bowl movement may be due an increase in your appetite for food. Also fruits and vegetables also increase bowl movement. Since the consistency is not watery, there may not be a problem except the inconvenience of going to the toilet more often. Is there any associated abdominal pain? How old is your pregnancy? Have you registered for ANC?

    Ok. Sorry about the pain. It may be due to indigestion that is common during pregnancy or peptic ulcer disease. You can take antacids to see if the pain subsides. You should also do a pelvic ultrasound scan to confirm the position of the baby. Take care

    ok Thanks a lot Apparently you are saying the cause of frequent stooling and the abdominal / hip pain is cause by the pregnancy. meaning the position might be on the right hand side.

    No that's not what I mean. I just want to make sure that the baby is inside your uterus and not in your fallopian tube because of the abdominal pain you are having. This is why I said you should do a pelvic scan.

    Hello. I have already responded to you. No that's not what I mean. I'm just concerned about the fetal position based on the sharp abdominal pain you often experience.
