  • tnteaton, i also heard that almost everyone poops because of the pressure..thats what i heard...
    and the doctors wont tell you if you shit or not and some people dont even know that they did because of the epidural =P

    i just hope i dont poop..and if i do, if anyone says anything about me shitting, ill punch them...like i wanna know i shit the bed lol

  • Well I pooped before I left for the hospital and that was after 23 hours of labor.

    Didn't poop on the delivery table though.

  • I did a bit with my first, and insisted on emptying my bowels before they induced me with the second. You may not even know if you do if you have an epi and aren't looking.
