Pooping question... adult content

They say your not supposed to push while pooping and your just supposed to let it come naturally. How in the hell am I supposed to poop without pushing?! I just end up sitting there for hours! Im not constipated. Ive always been this way but with pregnancy they say no pushing.

  • they tell you not to push like you're trying to get a 5 lb log out. you can push just don't do it so hard that you end up with hemorrhoids

  • I never heard my doctor say anything about no pushing while you pooping UNLESS you was constipated; don't force yourself or you'll end up with hemorrhoids. Just do what you normally do but don't over-do it.
