Hi Guys

Don't know if you can help with this embarrasing question, but will give it a try.

This evening I went to the toilet and it was pure black (never had this before).  I have 3wks left before baby is due, I have been taking pregaday tablets for iron the past few days but nothing on the side affects about this.

Is this natural?

It could be because of the pregnacare as it contains iron and it may be that you have had a surplus of it and out it has come! I would suggest ringing your midwife in morning to be absolutley sure.

Hi Suz,

Just to let you know my experience. 

I was taking an Iron supplement from Tesco's as my iron levels keep dropping and my doctor asked me if my stools were black, so i said no and he has now put me on Pregaday tablets which have made them black.  All normal.

Good luck with the rest of your pg!!!!
