  • I wish I could help!! I didn't have the BM's AT ALL!! My water broke 2 weeks early and all I had was low dull back pain (constant) all that day. I had no idea it was labor!! I didn't even feel the urge to go to the bathroom until I was 5 cm!! Good luck... I hope all goes well!!

  • I got induced and I felt all of my contractions through my butt. I kept feeling like I had to poop. So I decided to get the epidural and pooped once while still laying there waiting to push. The I pooped the whole time I pushed. My husband jokes and says "they got 2 trash bags full of poop". So maybe since you are getting it out now, you won't poop during labor. Good luck!!!
