Keri - October 24

I am 17 weeks pregnant and have notice twice that when I do finally have a bm, I have noticed red stuff in my stool. Red in the actual stool part. Maybe I shouldn't look to into things, but it has me asking questions. There is no blood, but red in the actual stool. Did anyone experiece this? Does anyone know what it could be? Thanks,

Perhaps it is just something that you ate that does not get thoroughly digested. You can always call you Dr to make sure something is not wrong, But I would not worry too much. It does sound as if you are constipated though - what an awful feeling. I find that if I do not drink enough water, that is a big problem for me. Also someone else suggested on here to try almonds, chocolate covered - they do seem to work wonders!!! Good Luck

If the red is not the color of blood, it could just be partially undigested food, but if it's even slightly the color of blood, you should get checked for hemorrhoids... they're really easily fixed, and it's a quick exam. You might mention it at your next appointment, if it doesn't seem too much like blood.
