Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini, Gastroenterologist and I am pleased to answer your question.

The common causes of blood in stools are hemorrhoids and fissures.

Bleed in stools during pregnancy most often is due to hemorrhoids.

Proctoscopy test may be done to confirm it.

Eat high fiber diet and drink plenty of fluids.

I hope that answers your question.
