    Yes sadly it is true. You can always ask for a enema when you go into labor.

    Oh I don't think it's a big deal, if it happens it happens, and they sweep it away quickly.

    We're not exactly in a graceful position to begin with when pushing out the baby anyway, so just go with the flow I say!

    I was worried but at the time of pushing her out I really could not have cared less. Saying that though it was one of the first questions I asked OH and I didn't - yay

    Exactly, once you've got a babys head half way out of your moo, you don't care if you poo or not.. plus I told the midwife I felt as if I was going to go and she said "thats how it feels, plus the baby is too far for anything to come out now anyway". Giving birth really does feel like doing a poo lol, but of course a lot more painful.

    Don't worry about it, they've seen it all before.. if it happens it happens.

    once your in labour trust me it is the last thing on your mind, giving birth is the most undignified thing you will ever do lol my midwife said this to us

    "On your way in to hospital you hang up your dignity and leave it there, you pick it back up again on the way out!"

    and it's so true, I tell my birth story and sit and laugh at the vision of myself 'trying' to have a wee.

    I didnt poo and actually dont know anyone who did, but the reason it happens is becuase baby is pressing against your bowels as he or she comes out, so sometimes it might even feel like you have done a poo when you havent

    bahah! this is one of my new fears now... hehehe. i'm scared to even pass gas during the labour. i'm thinking though that we won't be nearly as caring about things coming out of us when we're in labour... i think we might have other things on our minds hehe.

    I have a friend how farted really loud during labor and it sounded like she did but luckily she didn't. I'm pretty sure she would have cared less if she did.
