my poo is bright green.

Is that ok? I haven't gone poo in about a week, and I finally had to go today, and it was a really weird bright green color. It wasn't my vitamins, because I haven't been taking them for about 2 wks or so. Is this normal? I'm 36 wks.

  • OP--I remember "binging" on Froot Loops near the end of my pregnancy! And guess what color my BM was the next day! Yup! Must be all of the food coloring they use! LOL

  • I am betting you ate something that would turn it green.

  • Did you eat anything purple, like grape soda or grape candy? For some reason, that grape coloring can turn your poop a weird green color.

  • No I haven't eaten anything that I haven't eaten before...Lately I just been eating chicken or hamburger meat, some veggies, sandwhiches, stuff along those line. I had some fruity pebbles last night, would that do it?

  • i had the same problem when i was pregnant. my hubbys aunt gave me those prenatal vitamins. they made me feel like crap every day. stopped taking them and then my poo was dark, sometimes bright green. talked to my OB. she said it could be too much iron and i should never take those stupid vitamin pills. after a while of not taking those damn pills anymore i felt better and the poo problem was gone also. my ob also told me to eat more veggies and fruits than normal. fast food doesnt really help either. which i didnt have a problem with, because i hate fast food.
