Re: Black stool?

I am not taking iron supplements. My iron is fine, and my prenatals don't have iron in them. I went again yesterday and it was more of my normal color. I really think that maybe it was something I ate, or related to pregnancy stuff. I'm feeling totally fine. I think I might also have a hemorrhoid, though. Those darn things ALWAYS get me during pregnancy.

Weird dyes in food do that to me and my one son! Even fruit loops are weird.

Yes! Fruit loops never cease to turn my kiddos' poop bright/dark green! It's always a mixture.. like sherbet. Gross.

First time my daughter pooped after fruit loops it was blue. Blue poop. How freaky!

I bleed with every bowel movement and it is due to hemmorhoids. I've had it checked and had stool samples done. There's no blood from higher in the GI tract but always with a bowel movement. It's scary but until this baby is born what can I do? Lol 3 more weeks....

I second probiotics and try to get more leafy greens. Try spinach blended with fruit (pineapple, strawberry, peach) is my favorite and it's a dole blend you can buy at the grocery. Almost tastes like piña colada if you use coconut milk!
