I had to have a c-section with my last pregnancy because of how much meconium there was in my water. My son's heart rate was perfectly fine and I was actually a week early. I was thinking that maybe the spicy food the night before had something to do with it? Just for fun I went out with friends, got the spiciest thing on the menu, then added the spiciest salsa that they had. Honestly I don't remember it bothering MY stomach much but maybe it bothered his?
If not I was also wondering if drinking coffee can cause meconium? Towards the end I was working full time and extremely tired so I started drinking coffee again in the morning. Well, coffee makes people go, so I started thinking, why not make a baby go too? I've googled this and got nothing.
Right now I'm 26 weeks pregnant with our second and last baby. The doctor has already OK'd me delivering naturally for this one, but I'm worried that there will be meconium again. I didn't even get to feel a painful contraction last time which sounds stupid, but I feel like I missed out on my labor story. Plus another c-section scares me. I was so drugged up afterwards I barely remember his first few days of life. :[
