Irregular (tmi sorry)

I'm almost 10 wks PG and have been really irregular and constipated, besides it being really horrible. There was blood. I have had that before but this was more than usual. Just wondering if anyone has had this before. I'm thinking it was from me strainging but could use some advise it kinda freaked me out a little. Thanks sorry for the TMI..

  • tell your doc that you have been constipated and irregular - IRON in prenatal vitamins will do this to you because if your system is overloaded with iron you will be constipated and (tmi you will notice that your stool is practically black from the iron) - dr will give you stool softener or a prenatal with less iron
