Quite Possibly ~ TMI

I'm 28 weeks pregnant as healthy as can be expected. Pretty easy on me so far. But, yesterday I started having a major issue for me, since I've never had it before. I am not having normal BM's. They are a few times a day and barely anything comes out and what does is a dull green or almost yellow color. It's almost a mucus consistancy. I'm still eating normally, and feel okay other than this. So, is this something to call the Dr about? Any other suggestions?

  • I wouldnt be too concerned about that. If it ever look like a greyish or dingy color then let your doctors know. It could be something to do with your liver. Called Cholostasis in pregnancy. I dont think you have it though so dont worry. If you are worried then let your doctor know because its not good to stress at any rate :) Gl hun. Try not to worry.

  • Your bowels might be abnormal because of a prenatal vitamin you are taking or any other med. you are taking. Call your dr. That may be the cause ( it happens a lot ) but if it is not, your ob. may want to see you and ask about your diet to rule some things out. Just call the ob to be safe.
