Pregnant, have gestational hypertension, red colored stools, belly cramps, had taken red kool aid. Cause of cramping, stool color?

Hello, I am a pregnant female who is 38 weeks pregnant. I have gestational hypertension . I am having red colored poop, with belly cramps . I drank some red kool aid today and yesterday. Could the cramping just be from the pregnancy and the red from the kool aid? My stool is also semi loose which it has been for about 2 weeks.

Thanks for writing to us.
The cramping and loose stolls could be due to an intestinal infection. The red color stools are likely to be due to the red colored food you have taken recently.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
