Diarrhoea and subsequent pale stools

Dear Dr C,

I am 5 weeks pregnant with my second pregnancy (through IVF thus still taking progesterone and oestrogen supplements). Last week Thursday started feeling very weak and nauseus. Initially thought it was just morning sickness (first for me) but by Friday had chills, severe weakness and stools were quite loose. Saturday was same but stools were watery. Sunday feeling much better but not hundreds. Very burpy. Today feeling almost human but bowel movement soft (not runny) and very pale (greyish). Is this normal after diarrhoea (ie no bile secretion) or should I check with my Dr especially considering that I am feeling much better (no more 'morning sickness')

It may be normal, but I would suggest that you check with your doctor anyway.
