Does watermelon digest fully in stomach?

I feel stupid for asking this but does anyone know if watermelon fully digests in your stomach or does it come out in pieces like corn does? I really need the answer to this. Thanks!

The meat would digest, unless there is some gastric anomaly. The whole seeds would pass through. Even if chewed, some of the exterior of the seeds might not be digested. Corn passes through only because it is not chewed thoroughly.

The human digestive system is quite efficient and effective.

The reason I'm asking is that I saw some pieces of what looked like watermelon when I used the bathroom. I thought it was blood at first but I looked more closely & it was 'thicker' & 'pulpy', like watermelon is. I ate watermelon several times over the last few days. I just wondered if this is something to be worried about. Thanks for answering me.
