Also, several times the stool was yellowish in color with red flakes that look to be the consistency of tomato skin. The reason for my concern is i am 5 months pregnant

Firstly,get your stool analysis done. From your symptoms and the gross appearance of the stool, it looks like you are suffering from amoebic dysentery. Yet, get a proper diagnosis from your doctor as it needs to be treated immediately because if left alone, it may lead to dehydration, gross weakness and sometimes premature onset of uterine contractions. Take care.
