    Default TMI but I'm freaking out

    I know it's tmi but I'm freaking out and scared.

    I have had very dark green diarrhea for the last two days. I'm 9 weeks pregnant and have never had this before.

    Any thoughts?

    Are u taking Pregnancy multi vitamins? Like Elevit??

    They are very high in iron & will turn your poo green.

    My OB made me change from a multivitamin to frolic acid and iron only so that could be it? So relieved

    Yep, iron will do that. If you eat enough iron supplements it goes almost black.

    It depends how much iron is it in. I take one a day and it had about 105mg of iron in it! More than enough to turn in black...
