  • LOL. Not going to lie, I did! It was the day after Thanksgiving in 01. I was so embarrassed but the nurses were so nice and said it happens a lot and that we shouldn't ever feel that way. After all we are pushing with all our might to get our precious baby out.

  • I'm not even sure. I was worried about that too. I asked my SO but he said he didn't think I did. They pick it up so fast though that you wont even notice if you do.

  • Yup! I didn't know it, but hubby did! He said they just wisked it away and put a fresh blanket pad underneath. He said it wasn't even that gross though, sweet guy! :) I'm definitely not surprised it happened, though!

  • supposedly 1/4 of women go to the bathroom during labor. the nurses will clean it up for you and you most likely won't notice it. my lamaze teacher said to tell your partner before you go into labor to NOT say anything about you going potty during labor.

  • No, but I went to the bathroom every hour at least the entire time I was in labor.

  • I did. Twice. I got VERY embarassed and a nurse had to make me start pushing again. I now see how silly I was being but yeah...It aint fun. Just remember that your pushing with EVERYTHING youve got. So yeah, if you have anything up there, its comin out.
