I was wondering.. (TMI) adult content

Did any of you ladies poop during delivery? I know it's a TMI question but i want to know how common it is. I know i hope i don't but i guess you can't help it

  • My stepmother did and I was her coach, I did during one of my kid's births. The good news is, it's totally normal! Another good thing is that you don't stink up the room. Seriously, neither time was there odor. I didn't even know I had until DH told me, "Babe, you just pooped a little, but don't worry, the nurse got it." I was too tired to care. But I did give my nurse a lovely card ;)
