Q&A: Is it normal to have loose bowels during pregnancy?
Is it normal to have loose bowels during pregnancy? I don't know if it is the iron in my prenates or just my body reacting to the pregnancy. I am 34 weeks and everything else is just fine it just feels like I took laxatives for the past couple of weeks.
Iron usually has the opposite effect. I would ask your OB about this–it’s not normal. He or she may want a GI consult to rule out an infection in the bowels or an irritable bowel syndrome.
