Many different forms: Newborns can have as many as 8-10 bms per day to as few as 1 per 4-5 days; they can be green, yellow or brown and have the consistency of cereal, birdseed, slime or mush. Diarrhea is almost pure water repeatedly and constipation is rocky-hard rabbit pellets. Anything in between, any color (except white) or consistency can be normal.

Drink a lot of water: Many times, hemorrhoids in pregnancy are made worse by not hydrating well and thus constipation sets in. Straining increases the risk of hemorrhoids. Increasing fiber intake also helps. You can use over-the-counter hemorrhoid remedies, which are safe to use during pregnancy.
