Best remedy for diahorrea and nausea

Currently on an overnight business trip and suffering from diahorrea and nausea.
I am approx 6 or 7 weeks pregnant and took one TravaCalm Natural tablet which has eased the nausea and currently sipping on ginger/lemon tea.
The runs have ripped through me today. I think it's due to being stressed out for a business meeting I have tomorrow. Can I take Imodium to stop it? Or is there something else that can ease my gut so I am good for tomorrow...

Don't mean to scare you.
But l wouldn't be taking anything while pregnant.
Is there a chemist nearby that can advise you?
Dry biscuits is the best l can offer. Sorry.
ETA. Is the Travel Calm the natural one with ginger?
I read somewhere about Dramamine, but please consult a chemist while pregnant.

The antihistamine polaramine was prescribed to me for pregnancy nausea and incredibly effective. Not sure re pregnancy safe diarrhoea meds but any pharmacist should be able to advise.

I have found calcium helps. Google calcium for diarrhoea.

I'm fairly sure you can't take immodium in pregnancy but like a PP said check with a pharmacist. You could also try calling Nurses on Call and asking advice since it's late at night.
Hopefully a good night's sleep will also help. I always feel more nauseous when I am tired
Toast with butter has been my saviour so far this pregnancy ... And bananas

Antihistamines line polaramine are safe and effective for nausea, but will make you sleepy, so not ideal if you have a business meeting. Same as restavit.
Assuming you can’t get to a Doctor, definitely ask a pharmacist.
Bananas are good for blocking you up a bit.
You have my sympathies. I’ve had all day nausea for 9 weeks and I couldn't imagine the cruelty of having the runs too

Restavit works really well for the nausea but it will also make you sleep. I found quarter to half a tablet before bed got me through the night and most of the next day.

I don’t know about diarrhoea- I’ve always been taught that diarrhoea is your body’s way of purging bad things so unless you are severely dehydrated you shouldn’t try to stop it. And if you are severely dehydrated and pregnant you should be under the close watch of a doctor.
As for nausea, I’m a seasoned pro at this (now that I have graduated to the second trimester lol). I found this useful- it’s the actual guidelines that the doctors at the Royal Women’s in Melbourne use for nausea and vomiting. Look at the second page for the steps for medications:
I found that taking regular vitamin B6 (step 1) made a massive difference when my MS was its worst, and restavit (step 2) gets easier to take after you’ve have a few nights of it (I could take an afternoon half tab without being a zombie). The Dramamine from step 3 absolutely floored me so I stopped using it. I skipped step 4 when my ob prescribed me zofran (ondansetron) which I still use when I have a really bad day (still taking vitamin B6 and restavit at 15 weeks though).
