Did you poop in the water?

Serious question, I've always been curious! I've had two natural births on dry land and did whilst pushing with baby #2 and have always wondered what would happen in a water birth situation?

Were your other kids in the water with you?

I did not. I was actually surprised at how clean the water was when I got out. I could only see a little bit of blood that had come out.

No. I was in the water alone.

My kids were at grandma's house & I delivered at the hospital.

I have always wondered what is the temp if the water? Is it a little cold? Nice and warm?

It's comfortably warm. They keep it at a certain temp so it's not shocking for baby.

This hospital used a floating thermometer thing, and checked it periodically.
