Taking stool softeners during pregnancy is considered to be safe. The active ingredients in the stool softeners are not absorbed by the body, unless it is taken in large dosages. Therefore, it does not have an adverse effect on the growing baby. However, it is important that stool softeners be taken after consulting your health care professional. Same is the case with taking any other kind of laxatives. The health care professional will take your health into consideration, before recommending a stool softener or any other laxative to you.

Light, whitish, or gray stool is the sign for lack of bile juice in the bowel movement. This condition may be caused due to abnormalities in the bile duct that supplies bile juice. Probable medical conditions for these abnormal bowel movements include gallstones, giardia infection, hepatitis, and liver cirrhosis. If you are taking antidiarrheal medications at present, they might be the reason for passing pale-colored stool.
