I'm 32 weeks pregnant with my first baby boy:) and lately I've had diarreah along with just feeling plain out sick sometimes. I've only puked once since I was about 20 something weeks but I was wondering if having diarreah and feeling sick like this is normal?

t could also just be early preparation you do get a lot of diarrhea at the end of a pregnancy its the bodies way of clearing out and preparing for labor

32 weeks way too early for that, if youre not having any contractions Im guessing Its the flu.

It is not too early every pregnancy is different
I had diarrhea from 34 weeks with my daughter and the midwife said it was perfectly normal !
I have had it since 37 weeks this time
Diarrhea is pretty common pregnancy or no pregnancy and is only cause for concern if you have other symptoms such as fever , vomiting , headaches, nausea etc
I don't know why you say Flu when she has no flu symptoms ?
she feels generally sick ... well thats pregnancy symptom too i am only weighing in because i feel like this site is full of a lot of fear mongering
when i was first time pregnant and i asked any questions on here i got some terrifying advice/opinions (LOL not that FLU is terrifying ) i just think she ought to hear everyones opinions and i dont think you should rule mine out !
ps she may have flu ( except that flu requires a temp and snot and coughing etc)

If you aren't having any contractions then it sounds like you just might be trying to get sick. It could be the flu or just a common cold that is compounded by the pregnancy.
As long as the baby is moving around like normal and you aren't having any signs of contractions or pressure like the baby is trying to push its way out then pretty sure that everything is okay.
Also if you are still concerned most drs have after hours nurse or dr on call or you can call the maternity ward at the hospital and explain your symptoms and they can tell you (with better medical idea than us) if you need to be looked at or not.

It's not too early for that. I've been dealing with the 'clear out' in preparation since i was 32 weeks, granted i'm being induced at 38 weeks on Friday but every pregnancy is different, it's perfectly plausible.

The flu can just be throwing up and diarrhea lol, and its been going around here in the states.

over here we wouldn't consider that Influenza ,
we would call that a stomach bug and we have one at the moment there is a norovirus( which goes around in the winter every year ) and they aren't allowing any visitors in the hospitals cos they have had to close 14 wards which sucks and means my daughter wont get to meet her baby brother next week and i can only have 1 birth partner

Thanks everyone for all of your opinions and advise. I still feel sick sometimes but I haven't thrown up since that one time and I'm not havin any unnormal headaches but everynow and then I get this pain from the inside near my vagina that almost feels like my baby is pushing down but it only last for a second or two...

Its the Baby hitting your cervix. My daughter was so low I had it from 17 weeks until I had her! At first it was kicks then she was head butting it lol. It hurts so bad! But it's normal.
