  • Well if you are at the end of your pregnancy and due you might be getting ready for labor. A lot of women have diarrhea when labor is imminent.

  • it's just a soft serve poop which is fine and healthy. it's only unhealthy when it is watery but if it's just very soft then you're fine. you're lucky, it's better to get a soft serve than a big hard painful log

  • thanks I just wanted to make sure that everything was okay cuz I have been reading a bunch of other posts where women are struggling to use the bathroom while pregnant. So I was worried that this was not normal. Thanks a bunch ladies.

  • taking prenatal vitamines is what usually causes some constipation due to the iron and other abundance of vitamines. Diet has a lot to do with it too. There are foods that will cause you to go like that. I have been taking a probiotic vitamin as well as my prenatals to help with the constipation(wich has worked), but also would regulate you. But I would talk to your doctor to make sure it's ok for you to take especially if it's a daily problem. And it is expensive.
