What is your #1 fear of labor - besides the pain???

I would have to say that mine is that I will poo on the delivery table. Sure it's funny to see in the movies as they whisk in scoop it up with the fish net....but I gotta tell ya I don't wanna do it. lol

  • Honestly, the pain was my ONLY fear. I never worried about anything else. And as it turned out I had wonderful epidurals and never felt the pain, so I had no reason to worry at all!

  • this is gonna sound silly.. but honestly, getting the epidural was my worst fear. even though ive had three babies and had one each time, i started getting anxious about it weeks before i delivered. i was always afraid they would do it wrong and paralyze me or something.. LOL.

    i never feared pooping, that's such a normal thing to happen when you're pushing with all your might! i did actually poop with my first, and they dealt with it accordingly. nobody made a fuss over it or anything. hey, shit happens! =P

  • Pain didn't bother me and I wasn't worried about it but I was worried about pooping on the table.

    Everyone told me that once you were pushing, you would forget about that...I DIDN'T! After she was born, I asked my mom if I had and she told me no. I don't know if she would have told me the truth but she saw it all and I trust her so I left it at that.

  • Sounds silly, but I was worried about being shaved. Let me tell you, when it got to that point, I was in hard labor, and couldn't have cared less about it.

  • i was worried about pooping too. i sure didnt want the nurses or doc to see that or have to deal with it. to me that would have just been embarressing.

    Answer by laura970 at 8:39 AM on Mar. 4, 2011
