NOT AT ALL, ONE OR TWO LOOSE MOTIONS ARE NOT HARMFUL FOR YOUR BABY AND USUALLY ABDOMEN PAIN IS COMMON IN LOOSE MOTIONS.SOME QUANTITY OF BODY FLUID WILL BE LOST IN LOOSE MOTIONS SO DRINK PLENTY OF WATER.IF THE PROBLEM IS MORE AND FREQUENT THEN CONSULT A DOCTOR.

hi, if more loose motions are happening then it is dangerous.bcoz in this way your amniotic fluid will discharge.

Hi
You are in 21st wks and suffering from loose motion.
Don't worry, it isn't harmful for your baby and also for yourself.It may be an indigestion problem and abdominal cramp occurs for loose motion which is very common.
If loose motion continues many times in a day, then you take tab Metrogyl 400 tds, cap amoxicillin 500 tds and who ORS.
Be well in upcoming days.
