    I was like that and I know full well I did when I was pushing coz I saw the midwife wipe something away, even though I was embarrased I didnt give a monkeys, I just wanted my dd out.

    Believe me you don't even know it's happening -all modesty goes out the window :rotfl: I read through my blow by blow account of my labour (the MWs write notes like minutes from a meeting!!!) and was most embarrassed to see "bowels opened" at one point - hadn't even realised! :rotfl: :oops: :oops:

    LOL..it cant be helped, your not actively pooing its what is already in the back passage and when the babies head gets so far it all gets squashed out, i used to think iwas actually pooing until the midwfe told me this so the next time i had an enema(sp)...Interesting! but seriously if you make sure you "go" before hand then there shouldnt be that much to come out.
    You wont be bothered anyway just grab the gas and air and PUSHHHHHHH!

    I am worried it will happen to me. :oops: Everyone say's the mw is used to it and to be honest, you really won't care by that point.

    Just put it to the back of your mind. You won't be seeing the mw for that long afterwards, and your oh isn't going to care about it once he gets the lo in his arms. xxx

    Don't worry about it. They won't tell you even if you do, they'll just wipe it away!

    Let it all hang out, it's the only time your allowed to shit yourself in public!

    I didn't even know I had pooed until after when I went to pick up a towel and the midwife said erm... you don't want that one! I know it's said a lot but when you're in labour you don't care about anything other than getting the baby out.

    I was terrified of it happening too! I had even asked the midwife I was seeing while pregnant whether they would give me an oenema b4 to empty my bowels but she said no, it's such a natural thing, don't worry, we midwives have seen it all - I was polite and didn't say anything at the time although I wanted to say: I don't care about you seeing me, it's my husband I don't want to see me pooing. I'm like you, I'm very nervous when it comes to that, I don't even go to poo unless the music is on in the house or something lol.

    As you would expect, I did poo but I didn't care that much at the time (although I felt a bit bad thinking about in in retrospect) but I'm sure my husband didn't care (maybe didn't even notice lol) and I don't thing your OH will, as they are pretty amazed and overwhelmed by the whole labouring thing.
