  • OMG like 5 times! I could always tell by the look on my husbands face. The nurse, judy would hurry and clean it up and pat my husband on the shoulder LOL

  • Nope, not with either kid.

  • no,but my cousin did. They just discreetly wiped it away. If you focus on your pelvic muscles for pushing instead of how you would to pass a bm,you'll be less likely to do it

  • Yes, but they were very quick to remove it.

  • I have no clue! My doctor never said I did... So my guess would be no....

  • I don't think I did with either... if i did they did a good job keeping it discrete lol

  • Don't think so with either of them- if I did no one said anything

  • I have a feeling that I should be okay for that. My stomach is sensitive so anytime I've had even mild cramping it's made me have to *go*. I think I'll be good and empty by the time it's time to push lol. If not...well my husband will definitely NOT be looking down there while I'm pushing. We've already talked about it and I'd prefer him be by me holding my hand or coaching me, not staring at my vagina haha.

  • Yes. With both babies and my doctor gave me an enema before! As for me being embarass, nope. It didn't care what I did as long as my babies came out! lol
