    Poo question ....sorry if TMI

    Sorry if it is TMI ...but within the last week when i have done a #2 , a couple of times i have noticed that it is partly dark in colour and some areas a lot lighter. Kind of like a marble effect!
    I have been on Elevit for ages so i know normally they might be a bit darker with all the iron but i havent had these multicoloured ones before?!
    I was thinking is that something to do with labour maybe starting soon or has anyone else had this happen to them?

    Mine does that, depending on what I've eaten, and whether I've been constipated.
    So (and I know this sounds gross), its normally darker the longer I haven't 'been' IYKWIM

    Beautiful Adelaide!

    If I have been a bit constipated, and then eaten fatty junk food (particularly fatty fake things like Cheezles etc!) then I get this delightful marbled effect!

    My advice would be, if it looks "wrong" or "different" then switch to all good food for a while (wholegrains, vegetables, beans, etc) and take a break from the naughty things (everyone has their own particular pet "naughty food" I think). Give your digestive system a rest and things should go back to normal.
