Dark stool like you're describing may mean that you're bleeding higher in your digestive tract. Since it's black, the blood is old, which is concerning. I would ask your doc for further testing on both issues!
I would think if I was bleeding higher in my digestive tract, I would be vomiting it up, no? I still have a touch of morning sickness, and throw up several times a week, though not every single day, and there's no blood in it.

Also, when I lay on my back, my uterus is SUPER low... the pain seems way too high to be my ureters. I also had an ultrasound a week ago when I went in for the pain, and they didn't note anything. :/
