  • Are you taking any extra iron by any chance? Iron will cause this...

  • The only one that can answer this is your doctor. I would call him in the morning.

  • Did you take Iron, Pepto or eat more Oreos recently?

  • I'm also gonna say it's the extra iron. I had to stop taking them with both of my pregnancies. It was just ridiculous.

  • Yea, my guess is either iron or pepto bismuth.
