DD is a little over three, nursing, and i'm 27, almost 28 weeks pregnant.
lately (past week or so) her poop is consistently loose, dark, i'd say "tarry" colored. she does not seem sick.
does it sound like this is colostrum come in? will her poop stay like this for the duration of the pregnancy?
thanks for any help.

This happened to my dd last year while pg with DS. Yes, it is your colostrum. It did not last through the whole pg.

Mindfully parenting DD 8/04 & DS 11/08, Human beings are the only mammals who do not nurse their offspring to full term.

ok thanks. i won't worry about it. does it just clear up eventually (the loose black tarry poops)? does colostrum, once production starts, continue for all the next twelve weeks until after i give birth? how interesting....
