I am 15 weeks pregnant and have dark green watery stools and am taking iron supplements and vitamins-is this normal?

If you are taking iron supplements then you can sometimes have dark brown or even green stools, diarrhoea or even constipation. Though it's unlikely, watery stools can sometimes be a sign of an intestinal infection or food poisoning. If they continue depsite stopping iron tablets and prenatal vitamins, or you are experiencing frequent stools or abdominal cramps, you should see your doctor who will probably want to send off a sample of your stool to the lab.
