  • You won't even know and the attending nurse or your midwife/OB will simply clean it off and continue on. It's not like they scream ' OH MY GOD! SHE TAKING A SHIT!'.

  • didn't happen with either of mine but they clean it up right away. some women don't even know that it happened.

  • You probably will. Most doctors discretely remove it without comment.

  • That's happened to a few women I know. Don't sweat it, they are used to that in L&D!

  • It will be the last thing on your mind when you're at the point of pushing

  • it happens they don't say anything just clean it up. i thought i had to asked to go to restroom they said no when i told them the pressure i felt said no hon your ready to deliver. so if i did or did not i don't know cause noone ever told me. i rather hope i did not though. i would of been embarrassed.

  • They wont tell you. I know I did with my second but they denied it. And it wasnt the last thing on my mind when it did happen, but I got over it quickly.

  • You probably will! It's not that big of a deal. Most women do so the doctors and nurses have seen it all before!

  • most women do. the doctors and nurses wont care. they are trained in this field and know what to expect. they just clean you up and go on about their work
