TMI poop and labor Cordelia's Mom 33 kids; Bakersfield, California 3685 posts

Anyone here felt like they were shitting their brains out and then went into labor soon after? The last 3 days I've been going what seems like every time I sit to pee! Not literally but it's so often. :oops:

I have heard it too that's why I am asking if it's really that common. I haven't changed my diet so idk what's going on with me. Oh well. From the poll it seems like it's probably nothing!

diarrhea or pooping a lot is common right before labor
wait until you poop AFTER labor... get your self a nice big bottle of glycerin suppositories, stool softeners, and drink LOTS OF WATER.
its goign to be like a turd the size of a pea but feel like your trying to shit out godzilla

a few days before i went into labor(they stopped it) i had some insane bathroom issues. so sure they stopped the labor, but that didnt stop my body trying to empty itself. :C still going on since the 19th!!

I have been having it off and on for months. BUT this past week or two it has been 1-3 times a day! Its driving me crazy. With my son I was so backed up I ended up getting an anal tear.

How far along were you when you had your labor stopped? And that sucks so bad! Lol. I hope I'm not stuck with this for too long.

A tear from when you actually went after being backed up?



I have been feeling like I have been going more for a few weeks but then the last couple days I really have been going all day. Maybe we're close? :]

I didn't listen to the DO NOT strain if your constipated. & Well I pushed really hard. :( It was like pooping knives after that. I had to be on miralax for 8 months after giving birth to him. They almost had to do surgery!

Ahh okay. I didn't know they still stopped your labor that far along. I hope my bathroom problems mean something for me. Just 5 more days until term and I'll be happy if that's when she decides to make her entrance!
