Okay ladies here it goes! My biggest fear is when im giving birth I'm going to #2 on the doc! I wouldn't be able to look at him again!! I know with contracions epi and other things going on it should be the least of my worries, but do they take percautions to avoid this from happening?

They didn't with me but when you are in labor you really don't care if you go #2, I promise. lol I was in so much pain that I just didn't care as long as the baby came and quick!

Most women don't even realize they've pooped and by the time you would notice it's all cleaned up and they don't even mention it.

The drs are used to it. I kept thinking before hand oh I hope I dont I hope I dont
I prewarned my BD that it might happen
and while I was in labor it was the last thing on my mind, and honestly I dont know if I did or not

its completely and totally normal.. how can they NOT expect that to happen when they say "bear down like you have to make a bowl movement". If it happens, it happens.. and honestly, you probably wont even notice and from I heard, doctors and nurses dont say anything about it either.

My husband keeps telling me he is going to laugh if I poop on the table. Fucker. Anywho, the docs/nurses are so used to it, they'll clean it up so quickly.

I didn't poop on the table last time, hope I don't this time. My husband will never let it up, LOL.

Chances are you wouldn't even know you pooped unless someone told you. My sister's friend is an ob/gyn and they were delivering a baby once and the amniotic fluid shot out and went alllllll over her head, in her hair, and everything. It's just part of the job lol

The doctor sees it all the time, I wouldn't worry about it. And I seriously doubt you will be worried about it when you're pushing the baby out. If you're really worried about it then you could take a laxative when you go into labor but what if you were to have a short labor and you're having diarrhea all over while pushing? Haha. I just wouldn't even worry about it. You don't need diarrhea pain on top of labor pain.

i think thats your biggest fear right now, but when you're in that room pushing your soul out, you're not even gana think about poop!

One of my biggest fears too....I know other things should seem scarier...but that really makes me very very uncomfortable to think it could happen

Well it doesn't shoot out of your ass at the doctor, it just sneaks out on to the table so try not to worry about offending the DR.



Not everyone poops in labor and I have yet to see a woman more concerned with if she pooped on the table than her new baby
