Pooing in third tri...

Lovely title I know, but a question.

I've read that as you get further along baby presses down even more on bladder things are squished, so that is why you pee and poo more. But I've also read that pooing a lot is your bodys way of cleaning itself out. So is it one or both?

Asking because I usually go every 2-3 days, due to lifetime iron supplements. In the last week it has been twice a day every single day! What is up with that?

ETA: Never had this with DS.

I'm on iron tablets too and weirdly enough I've also been going to the bathroom a lot more! I have no idea why though because it shouldn't be like that lol

I know this is an old topic but I wanted to throw out that I'm in the same boat. I'm also on iron and lately I go more than I ever have. It's really strange.
