  • Hun dont stress out too much everything should be ok as long as you get yourself checked out it should be fine!!! Im very dissapointed in everyone saying stuff to scare the living fuck out of this girl seriously it would of been fine to just tell her to go get it checked as soon as she can worrying her like that isnt going to help her, plus by the sounds of it she is worrying alot herself. And its NOT good for her baby for her too worry and stress alot and it wouldnt be good for anything else that is wrong so next time someone asks something like this DONT freak out at them just advise them to get it checked out!!!!!!!

  • This is NOT a pregnancy thing. Blood in the stool is a sign of a bacterial infection in the stomach or an ulcer. Either it would be a VERY good idea to contact you health care provider immediately!

  • well id prolly go to er its quicker n they do very detailed exams to find out the problem asap. i was preg, had a miss carriage about a week ago, this is deff not normal.... but deff go to the doc asap, if u had anything medical wise done such as a procedure you could be hemoraging.... wish u luck!

  • I recommend ER or Urgent Care. Anon is right. You may have an ulcer or a stomach infection. Neither is a good situation under normal circumstances, but while pregnant, they are especially bad news.

  • i would definitely go to the doctor asap. my friend had that happen to her (no a pregnancy sign at all) and it was internal bleeding caused by an ulcer.

  • Don't get yourself in a huge uproar. My daughter who is 3 has been vomitting blood and pooping blood since she was 10 months old... The pooping of blood was caused by her ulcers in her stomach, which then the blood would pool around, and it would either come out in her vomit, or in her poop. I would call your doctor, let them know what is going on... and see what they say. These people aren't medical perfessionals, they were just telling you to go to the er. But don't panic, that will just put more stress on your body, which you really don't need!

  • Oh yes, and ulcers aren't going to kill you or anything!! They can treat them, my daughters have been gone now for a long time!
