i have heard that while in labor many woman have a bowel movement on the table. how true is this. i've been told it is due to the pressure and the pushing. i am so afraid of this happening.

I'm pregnant with my third child and like you was terrified that i would have a bowel movement during delivery. However, if it happens the doctor wipes it away and you won't even know that it happened. Although this may be hard for you to believe now, there isn't much you will be worried about during delivery besides getting the baby out. I use to say that i didn't want anyone in the room other than those who needed to be there and when i was in labour, the US army could have walked through and i wouldn't have cared...lol...Try not to worry too much about the little things that may happen, odds are nothing will happen. Good luck

There's other things too worry about girl! - alittle poo on the table isnt a big deal , just think the doctors and nurses see it almost everyday they clean it away and dont even tell you that youve done it - so dont worry about things like that! good luck to you on your pregnancy :) hope all goes well for u x

You can improve the odds by not eating much a few hours before, but believe me, docs and other hospital staff have seen it all, and have come to expect it.

I was worried about this too, but it is very common. Midwives are used to it and will probably whip it away before you've even noticed. You'll be way to busy to care. I'm just goig to make sure I don't eat anything spicy in my last month. :-)

I think if I was a doctor I would just be happy that the baby and mom were fine and no one was trying to sue me. That is what the doctors and staff should be worried about. If they say anything to embara__s you about the poop (and some are that unprofessional) then that is their problem, not yours. Look at your hospital bill afterward; you'll probably wish you had pooped on someone.

Im worried about that too. Doesnt it make the room smell? LOL Well I get the point from all the other posts, I wont care at that point. If I have a healthy baby I will be happy.

I watched a water birth the other day and the midwife had to use a net to fish out the poo from the water (could NEVER be a widwife!). This mother was very image consious and turned up to the labour ward, looking like she was going to the theatre or something, but when the poo thing happened, she was far too busy pushing to even notice. Lol! There's no room for dignity when your giving birth it seems. :) Kind of puts me off a water birth though. I don't like the thought of that stuff floating around me.

okay this should be in the question section but since we are talking about it, do you suppose maybe if i dont eat once i go into labour, or something more drastic like not eat the whole week think i could sort of not poo?
