  • Well, anything thats in your colon is going to get pushed out. Pooping is common, so I would assume if there is any air in there, yes, you'd fart it out. Huh--- well. I guess I'd never really thought to much about that. LOL

  • I not only farted, but I crapped on the delivery table. I drank a gallon of prune juice the night before because I thought I was constipated when I was really in labor.

  • Trust me, as embarrassing as it sounds you will not be too concerned with that when the time to push arrives.

  • Oh one more thing, normally I would have been very imbarrassed, but I was in so much pain that I didn't care, it was the least of my problems. That only happened with my first child, the next two that didn't happen

  • Honestly... I have NO idea if I did! I don't know WHAT happened other than my son was born and it was wonderful! You won't care when the time comes and there will be no concerns with things like that!

  • I didn't, but I was in so much pain I didn't really care what was going on down there, as long as it involved getting the baby OUT

  • Yes, while I was pushing I farted. The nurse was great cause she felt me tense up when I did it and she just said "It happens, keep pushing!". So I kept pushing and forgot I did it.

  • I don't think you're really gonna care once you're in labor!

  • Honey, I farted in the doctor's face when he was sewing me up after I had my first. I was so embarassed but it didn't seem to bother him. I guess he's used to it!! I also pooped on the bed when I was pushing during the birth of my first, it happens. The nurse will just clean it up and keep going.
