    Heck yes! I think about all that embarrassing stuff. glad I'm not the only one, and I'm sure everyone is right, it will be the last thing on our minds, but still. How embarrassing.

    No I'm not worried about it.

    The majority of women relieve themselves in labour, and a lot of those won't know that they've actually done it.

    Labour to us is something out of the ordinary, but to midwives they see it multiple times a day and thousands of times a year. You won't be the first, or the last person to relieve themselves during labour and they certainly don't care.

    :)

    They won't tell you, they are professional about it. Hence most people not even knowing they've done it. :)

    everyone worries about that chick! But I've been through labour twice and I honestly believe that if you do have an accident No.1 you dont really see or care whats going on down there! and No.2 if you do the nurses will discreetly clean it up and you will probably never know! So try not to worry! Everything that happens to you in the labour ward is just a normal days work for the hospital staff!

    lol your funny, apparently if you do they just wipe it away, and its only a tiny piece if you do, cos its so squashed when baby comes down to that point there's no python gonna come out, i don't know if i did or didnt so i know they don't come round and say "guess what you did" lol

    I worried too. I can safely say I didn't!! But I did tell the whole room I was going to, turns out I didn't need to poo, I needed to push.. :rofl:

    You really won't care, but I'm sure telling you doesn't help so.. I hope you don't? :hugs:

    I know, right? I read this is one of the many pregnancy books I've received and I put the book right away! I'm sure I won't care honestly, if it happens...but this is just another reason to say to my mother in law, "no thanks" when she wants to come in to the delivery room :)

    you should read jenny mccarthy's book Belly Laughs. she has a whole chapter about that. and she throws humour in there to lighten the mood

    but to answer your question, i am TERRIFIED to do it. but i am sure i will, after all, you're pushing with all your might, so a little is bound to come out. Although, I have heard some people say that right before labour they went. like, their body made them basically.

    When I went into labor with Z, my body had a clear out from all the rectal pressure. I was so relieved to crap my brains out before I went to the hospital. I think many of us will have this happen so lets all cross our fingers.

    I told my hubby that he's not allowed to look if it happened during birth but he said it would be cute!!!:saywhat: He said he would announce that I've given birth to a cute litle piece of turd. :rofl:

    That's what I'm afraid of! It's all normal for the doctors and midwives, but he's not sure if he wants to be there at all for the birth. :( I think the whole idea of seeing me like that scares him.
