Dear Flo
If your stools are just a bit less formed that usual when you drink water first thing in the morning, then this may just be general stimulation of your digestive process. Keep in mind that one of the tips for combatting constipation is to ensure adequate liquid intake. However, if you get diarrhoea if you drink water then it may be prudent to boil the water thoroughly and cool it down before drinking it as some component of the water could be causing diarrhoea.
Best regards
