Dark green diarrhea and queasy feeling in stomach. Also vomited large amounts of yellow fluid (just fluid) this morning. No change to eating/drinking?

That relationship: Is a bit difficult but stress and bowl habits can be related. With a newborn your sleep cycle is likely off and this may contribute.

I've been having diarrhea that is a dark olive green in color (gallbladder removed 12/30/2014). Is this just my body adjusting or a complication?
