Pooping During Pregnancy – Not Just a Wives Tale

I’ve been thinking about pregnancy and giving birth a lot recently – not because I am giving birth (I am male), but because my wife will be doing it soon with our second and a close relative just squeezed out a baby within the last few hours.  What a glorious moment!  I remember when my first son was born, I was entranced just staring into his dark, black eyes as he fixed his vision on your face where he could hear your voice.  It was a magical 30 minutes before the little guy got tuckered out and went to sleep.

But not all elements of giving birth are glorious, including taking a huge, fat dump while you are pushing that sucker out.  You don’t believe me?  Well, its true.  Check out this quote from a Parent Dish article regarding labor fears

“What people who have never had a baby need to know is that pushing out a baby is exactly the same as pushing out the biggest BM of your life. You are using all the same muscles to bear down on the baby.  It makes sense that other, uh,  stuff (besides a baby) is going to work its way out of your body”

Yep people, its true.  While giving birth, you may just squirt out a gigantic thud of a doogan all over the floor.  While this article tends to make it sound like its no big deal…they are sugar coating it.  Taking a duke in front of everyone is crazy.  If at all possible, take a duke as close to going into the hospital as possible.  But if it can’t be avoided, try to laugh it off by saying “ah crap” or something.  Maybe it will deflect the reality that you just dumped in a nurse’s hands.
