Hello, welcome to HCM. Loose motion in early pregnancy are common due to pressure effect of growing uterus on bowel. And moreover 1 to 2 motions are considered normal. So you must take healthy balanced protein and mineral and vitamin rich diet. You must take small frequent meals. And take plenty of fluid to avoid dehydration. You can consume lime water or WHO ORS solution. Wish you good health.

General & Family Physician Dr. Aashish Raghu's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You have been advised safe medicine consisting of healthy bacteria for your intestines. But sometimes this alone may not cure your problem. You should keep well hydrated. Dissolve a sachet of WHO ORS in previously boiled and now cooled 1 litre of water and drink as much as you need. Avoid spicy, salty, curry based food for now. Eat bland, cool, soft diet. Include plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables in your diet. Drink plenty of water. This will prevent further dehydration. Diarrhoea can precipitate pre-term labour as a complication. It would be best you get examined and tested by your Gynaecologist for proper management.
