I was the exact same as well! It's a mixture of hormones and can also be whatever pregnancy vitamin you're on as well.
As long as you're not uncomfortable and keeping hydrated, I wouldn't be overly stressed about it.

I did poop a lot when I was first pregnant, I think it is hormone related, something too do about clearing you out, enjoy it while you can....the constipation is hell 😩
