I'm really scared im going to fart while pushing. I know you poop and pee while doing it but im not worried about that because i wont even be able to feel doing that, so i wont know. But i dont want to fart and hear it because i think id be embarrassed! Does farting during labor usually happen?? has it happend to any of yall? Lol i know it should be the last of my worries but i cant stop thinking about it.

You're going to be on a bed with your legs spread open exposing your stretched out bloody vagina, and your fear is farting?



LOL

I would much rather fart than poop, LOL.



But, don't be embarrassed about it if it does happen to you. The doctors won't make a big deal about it!

Farting will be the least of your worries when you are in labor. & if you did I'm sure you wouldn't hear! Don't worry, your doctor has seen & heard everything!! lol

When it came time to push with my third, my bladder was super full I guess (they try and keep you drinking water the whole time) and first push I pee'd all over my doctor. He just stood there and covered the stream of pee until I finished pushing and emptying my bladder lol. I apologized and he said "Not at all, it's so common and at least urine is sterile" Next push my daughter was out so yeah. Don't even worry about farting. One of my friends was worried about having hair on her vagina when she had her daughter and I just laughed, like "yeah the doctor is going to take one look down there and be like someone get me a razor STAT! I can't get through this jungle to see the baby!" All of this stuff is par for the course, it's what they do :)

You will really NOT care about anything like that when you're pushing. I pooped, farted, AND peed. LOL. I also sprayed my OB in the face with fluid. That was amusing.

I have farted, pooped pee and all the above it is embarrassing but doctors and nurses are use to it and its human nature and they wont remember you by the girl who passed a fluffy in their face during labor
