  • What's in the poo all depends on what you ate in the past few days, did you eat a cat? lol just kidding, trying to lighten the mood, but honestly your pregnant, you allowed to take a wierd shit evey now and then, i honestly wouldn't call the doctor about your hairy poop unless it continues. good luck

  • The only other thing i read on the internet is that it could be possibl a food allergy that can cause a brown hairy stool and the advice they gave was to get a food allegy test that was from hope this helps as well.

  • I have had this before after eating shredded wheat. But if you haven't eaten that, it could have been mucus. Your body is desperately trying to "clear" itself and prepare for labor so odd stools around this time are really common.
