No matter how many times i read about this happening i cant stop laughing. Im sure im gonna poop on the delivery table, and laugh hysterically! It wouldnt embarrass me that much, but really..how many ladies have had this happen?? Anyone?

i did i think lol. but believe me you wont be laughing. you dont have enough time to do anything except push and scream lol

yeah... i totally pooped the whole time i pushed... my poor husband was reaally grossed out,lol! but i kept telling him i was going to do it because they (the H) had fed me 3 square meals the day before and i had not "evacuated" anything before labor...but krista-lee is right... you soooo don't care when you do!!!

hey there.. when I had my daughter I had an enema before anything really happened lol lol and I think it helped alot.. I mean I wnet into labour and had this awful need to go poo but I coudln't at all.. i was frustrated.. so the nurse asked me if i wanted an enema, I said sure.. and it wasn't that bad.. and well I pushed for 2 hours.. and never pooped once lol lol so maybe that's a thing to think about lol

I got sick the night before I went into labor, throwing up and diarea, the whole works, and couldn't eat anything the whole next day because I was in labor and didn't feel like eating, so buy the time I had my dd 2 days after I got sick, I had nothing left in my system, so even though I pushed SO hard, I didn't poop. I was so afraid I was going to, but luckily I didn't!

I did when I had both my kids it was horrible. I was mortified. All the Dr. kept telling me was that I just push and poop instead of trying not to poop. It was horrible. I think the worst part is that I made my best friend who was in there gag so it made me feel bad. But now we laugh about it. And I also peed with out knowing it. Dr. turned me on my back to get ready to push and baby's head pushed on my blatter apparently it was not empty but I did not feel myself doing it. I was just all the sudden getting wet. It was weird. It is all so very funny now but I did not think it was at the time it was happening.

I did! I was mortified. NO ONE told me this would happen and the nurse or the doctor did not rea__sure me this was "normal" so ofcourse it interfered with me pushing because I didn't want to push. It took them 30 minutes of convincing to really push. i was pretending and they knew. Ha ha.

i pooped with my son and i didn't even know it. my husband told me afterward...he watched the birth. Kind of embarra__sing, but it happens to a lot of women and the docs are used to it! If it happens to you, just laugh later :)


Mommy - June 29

I did, I think. My husband said I did and I'm pretty sure the nurse said something about "finishing my bowel movement" or something while I was pushing. I think it's pretty amusing, now. Besides, when you have pressure everydown down below, SOMETHING is bound to come out. :o)

it did not happen to me and i was in labour for 48 hrs

I had an enema, by my choice, because LO was so low he was blocking my bum and I couldn't poop for two weeks, still pooped a little while pushing. no big deal, I had a lot of other stuff on my mind at the time- like getting the baby out! I did throw up ALOT , ever minutes or so for the entire hour I pushed. That sucked. Big time.

I was in labor for 22 hours and I did not poop while pushing. Although it felt like I was going to and I kept saying that I felt like I had to poop and they just said that is what I should be feeling and if I did go that it was no big deal. Thankfully I didn't go but you won't even care if you do.


kelbabe - June 30

yep! it was funny, i didnt realise i had done it until the midwife opened the window!!!

hi, i was in labour for a very long time and i did a couple of little poops i didnt even know, icould just smell it.my husband,best friend & sister were all there & they all joked about it.


michellem - July 4

i asked for an enema at the start of my labour with two out of my 3 children, had time because i was induced, they wouldn't have given me one if i hadn't needed it apparently so i may well have pooped am due in 5 wks and will ask again, i just feel better that way, i did break wind every time i pushed with my last one though which i actually found very amusing!! midwives just went on like usual they don't give a d__n they've seen and heard it all

lol... i delivered 48 days ago,, i didnt have time to ask or even think if i did or not :P i think i did but no one mentioned it to me.. i didnt feel anything or concentrate on anything except pushing my baby girl out.. hubby was at my head so he didnt see anything :) thanks God :p but if i really did, i dont really care,, dr and nurses didnt even bother about it and the most important thing is that i had a healthy baby girl and a natural delivery which i somewhat feel proud that i could do it :)

Didn't with my daughter, did with my son. Actually, I was glad as it reasurred me that I was pushing correctly. When the nurse wisked away the proof I just giggled to my sisters ( in attendance along with DH) he he... I pood on the table! Actually, with all that was happening, it was nice to have a little comic relief!
