Red/Black streaks in stool

Hi there,

I discovered tht there are reddish/black streaks in my stool? I am 3 months pregnant. I've had no discomfort or abdominal pain. Also I did have beatroot about 2 days ago- could this be the beatroot or should I be worried?

Dear Bee
It could be the beetroot but this should clear away within 4 days after you've eaten beetroot - if it persists, rather take a stool sample to your doctor to be tested for blood.
