I pooped in labour and had no idea until dh kindly let me know a few days later, I know I peed because I asked the midwife if it was my waters, nope just pee! This was all at the pushing stage though so I can be forgiven

I think I pooed loads with the first, I had been a constipated so the poor midwives had a lot to deal with!
Got induced with 2nd and had big poo that morning and had been regular so thought I might escape it then, but no chance and of course with me on the gas and air I started shouting oh it stinks it stinks, so no chance of hiding it from dp blush

I pooped. Only a little rabbit dropping, but as I was pushing out a very chunky Dd, I did not care. The midwife discretely wrapped it in some paper towel and threw it away.

I didn't but DD pooed all over me when she popped out it was that black tar like stuff and was a nightmare to get off.

I definitely pooed both times. MW said I hadn't the second time but I saw it in amongst all the blood and gunk on the sheet she removed.

No-one with a delicate constitution should be reading this!

I did with my second child. I birthed at home in bed. Midwife wrote in notes " diorhhoea x2". I would not have known otherwise as she and dh had grace not to mention it to me.

Yes, after two hours of pushing every two minutes its a darn miracle my bowel didn't appear along with it!

Pooed with nos 1 & 2, DD2 was a home birth DP cleaned the poo up. Nos 3 & 4 I didn't poo but I didn't actively push them out, it was more like my body expelled them in 2 contractions no bearing down and pushing.

I did.

And someone stuck their finger up my arse.

They never said why.

Msbluesky32 Tue 23-Jul-13 18:54:37

Imtoo they did with me too...and I asked...turns out I'd given myself piles and they popping everything back in. Nice.

Do they not have to check for tears/damage in your rectum?

First time round they stuck painkillers up my arse.

Ahh. I see.
It was a bit of a shock, I tell you that!

Only little bits as labour had begun that morning with a really good clear out! I put this down to the curry I'd had the night before until I realised the cramps were regular ha ha! My poor husband cleaned the pool we'd hired out and has not once mentioned its contents though!

Yep, both times.

Wasn't aware first time until DH told me.

Second time I knew I had done it & the poor student midwife who was obviously instructed to just quietly remove it & not make a fuss stood with it in her hand & a look of horror on her face! shock

I assume so, I felt the midwife wipe my arse anyway. Oh the shame, although I didn't care at the time!

audweb Sat 27-Jul-13 23:30:59

I'm pretty sure I did, mostly because I could hear the student midwife asking the midwife something about wipes/cleaning, and she replied, in case of/or for the faeces. I didn't care at the time, but I really wish they hadn't had that conversation because it made me and my OH aware (he was up the head end!)
