What kind of birth experience do you want?


You mentioned a few attending the birth, it will affect your labor (poop or not).     You can think of it like you want to be comfortable enough to fully surrender in labor the same as you would to poop or orgasm.


;-)


Lots of women poop and it IS normal and expected.    I have done it and seen it, no one ever cares (except the mom, maybe, for some reason, lol.)

EXPECT to poop and fart and pee and leak blood and all kinds of stuff---    just expect to.   If you don't then fine.      But it may happen....   normal.

Well ill say this... I pooped and it was the absolute last thing I was thinkin about... Actually I laughed about it after I got done pushing sayin to my husband what's that smell? Did I poop... He got a strange look on his face and said yeah... Then we both died laughin... It's normal and everyone that is gonna be in the room know that... And it will be the last thing they r worried about... U will be fine...

Totally normal. Happened to me with two of my four kids. It was embarrassing but oh well.

I pooped. As Alien said it's the last thing that's on your mind. All I know I felt relieved when I did and when holding her. It was after the fact I realized it happened. But it's perfectly normal.

w my first, i didnt. my second ds i did but not during labor. when his head came down, it slipped some poop out and i felt it. i was scared bc i felt it come out and this was a hr or so after my epi!!! so i was afraid my epi wasnt working. lol. drs and nurses go thru it all the time. u will be so caught up in the moment that u wont care or even think about it :) i was scared of pooping when pushing out my first ds. right after i had him, i even asked every one if i pooped. they said no and i got excited. lol. the nurses laughed at me :P
