Do not worry yourself about this, yes a lot of people do poo whilst giving birth but the midwife will just take it away and most of the time you will not be aware that you have done it. No need to be scared of something you can't control and won't know about anyway! xx
You probably won't know if you do Hun, I wouldn't worry too much, at the time there will be so much else going on that you won't care that much if you do know. Midwives rarely comment, they just remove it and get on with the job at hand which is delivering your baby x
Not poo, but I am intensely phobic about being sick, to the extent of having had therapy for it (not that it worked, really).
To be honest though, by the time it was getting anywhere near that stage, I couldn't have cared less if I had pooed or been sick - they could have had a whole football team in tutus doing a wee dance around the room and I wouldn't even have noticed.
Before you go into labour, a lot of women have the runs, this is a way of your baody cleaning itself out for birth!! I ended up constipated from when i went into labour with my first and didnt go poo til the day after i had her so that was good lol and with my second i had to go whilst in labour (in the privacy of the baathroom at the beginning of labour) as my body knew to clear its self out. dont worry this is normal
If u do, they wipe it away quickly an no mention is ever made of it.. as I get further along, it gets further from my mind. Don't stress it. Let's see anyone push from their.bottom for more then 10 minutes without a little something coming out! It happens, but no one talks about it. But if u r worried ask dh to stand above ur knees and not below them..
