The Poop on Pregnancy

Well, more like pregnancy poop.

This is another TMI blog post, so be warned :)

Okay. So I've noticed that since I've been taking prenatal vitamins, that my poop has turned an interesting dark green color. Having worked in wards where rectal exams and poop inspection were part and parcel of the daily grind in which I had to give reports on ( and then act upon those reports ), it doesn't seem too odd to me that I'd have an interest in my OWN poo. *okay.. the faint hearted and slightly more delicate readers might be thinking that they should have stopped right after the warning*

But really, I think it's the prenatal vitamins that are doing it.

Or maybe it's just the gobs of green leafy vegetables that I am eating to try and stave off the dreaded constipation of pregnancy ( that is oftentimes aggravated by the above mentioned prenatal vits )

Or maybe it's just all this grape juice I've been drinking.

But all this green poop can't hold a candle to the baby's MECONIUM.

Oh yea, I hear ya about the Green poop! I thought I was getting sick or something, but I have been on 2 Once A Day pills (I can't stomach the Prenatals, so my doc told me to do 1 Vit in the morning and 1 in the afternoon) and lately my poop is just green! LOLs
