Hi there. I am 20 weeks pregnant and I have blood and mucous in my stools. I had this happening even before I was pregnant, but only had a ultrasound and barium swallow done. I was shceduled for an enima but had to cancel because of the pregnancy. The doctor gave me a rectal exam a few months ago for the bleeding and said I had some tears causing the bleeding. My stools are usually pretty large. My bowel movements have been much more regular since being pregnant, but not one time has there not been quite a lot of mucous.
Can someone tell me how mucous gets there and if all this will harm my baby? I have really bad stomach problems very often also for years now, and it always seems to be because of acid or something with alot of gurgling and discomfort. I havent had much of an appetite since being pregnant and sometimes have to force myself to eat.
Can someone give me some input on whats going on with me? What if my body isnt absorbing nutrients properly?
Doctors can't do any tests until the babys here. Another 4 months.
