25 weeks pregnant, stool color changed from brown to yellowish and softer 10 days ago. Any risk for baby's or pregnancy health? What should I do?

Pretty common: The color in stool is the breakdown product of the bile when it has not been in the gut long enough to go through a change from green thru yellow to brown. It is normal as is the loose consistency. Some digested material will take on a darker tint than others & the germs in the gut will also impact the final product. I'd ignore the whole issue.It is not a risk for baby. ...Read more

Black: Jet black stools, assuming you are not eating things which will do this, may signify old blood. Also if you see bright red blood this is of concern. If your stool is completely white that is not normal. All other colors are usually related to your dietary intake. ...Read more
