Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You can take oral rehydration solution for diarrhea.
If associated abdominal pain is there, then you should consult your OBGYN for proper examination and antibiotics should be given accordingly.

I was having several bouts of diarrhea yesterday. This morning, I had a very loose, lighter colored (almost yellow) stool with streaks of bright red blood. I am 7.5 weeks pregnant. My 3 year old has had a virus with coughing and fever. I think I picked that up as I have had a lot of coughing and achiness, too but no fever. What should I do?

Hello. I m currently 32 weeks pregnant--no complications. My whole family has recently had a mild stomach virus; I held out without getting it until this morning. I have foul tasting belches and watery diarrhea. What can I take to relieve some of these symptoms? I have only taken two Tums antacids earlier this morning.
