What is the treatment for loose motion for a pregnant woman?

I am 14 weeks pregnant. I am suffering from loose motion which is slightly green coloured only once a day. I stopped taking iron tablets from last few days. I am taking Mama's best powder along with milk twice a day. Please help me to find the cause of my problem and how can i get out of it?
