Pooping. Its being talked about by pregnant women all around the world, especially that fun little conversation they are having with their birth partner about (OH NO, SHE’S GOING THERE!) seeing them poop during pushing. Sorry, friends. Its 100% possible and happens a bunch. No worries though. Those L&D nurses have you covered! They are faster than superman (you know, the speeding bullet) to clean up and move on to the big show. As thrilling as that conversation is, I’ll let you continue to have that talk behind the closed doors of your bedroom, or in your mommy groups.
