just curious to know if anyone else found themselves peeing during strong contractions? I made a right mess of the floor which was ironic as i found it nearly impossible to go when on the toilet blush. i'm TTC second child now and find my thoughts drifting back to the 'joys' of am i a freak or are there other 'pee-ers' out there?

I couldn't pee at all! Had to be catheterised in the end, I was convinced my bladder was about to burst.

not a pee-er here... could imagine next time i'd be more likely to pee though!

Strangley no i had to get up and go for a wee when in labour with dc3 as my full bladder was stopping me being able to push him out!

I peed as well.... you are not alone!!

well thanks everyone for that, very illuminating! funny i was actually catheterised too at the end, before pushing, so the peeing on the floor must've been much earlier - tis all a blur as i was off my face with the pain - anyway, if i do succeed in another pregnancy i'll feel free to spray the room! BTW, Wabbit i think i know what you mean my bladder is pretty much shot to bits stop tena lady pads...sad

There so much mess when you give birth that I don't think anyone cares about a bit of piss.

I pooed (involunarily) as well during the second stage of labour. shock blush

Thankfully no poo got on my baby though.

I expect that midwife must have thought I was completely untoilet trained.

yes have to admit i pooed at the end of the second stage. and my DH told me it wasn't me making a whiff, it was just that he had farted, he was trying to save my embarrassment, tho at that stage i didnt really care. Nice thought tho grin...

dd1 - Catheterised.

dd2 - can vividly remember crying "im weeing on my baby" as I delivered her - but was told i wasnt, it was just the waters, i dont believe them! Apparently I pooed too but I dont remember, DH just tells me!

ds - didnt wee at all, no poo either. Remember going to the loo about 15mins after he was born though as needed to go.
