I was just wondering-- I've heard of it being pretty common that a woman may have a BM when giving birth-- and I was just wondering what would happen, if I did that in the birthing pool, while giving birth? Would it pose a threat to my LO, and should I get out of the pool? Or is it even that likely to happen?

Thanks, was just wondering![/b]
Happened to me with my second! With my first I was completely cleaned out after 22 hours of labor and never had that problem. With my second the labor was 2 1/2 hours and I had absolutly no time to do anything, my body had no time to catch up. It wasn't a problem though, other than being embarassing! My Dr fished it out with a net and got rid of it. You pull the baby right up to the surface of the water right away, before they take their first breath, so it isn't really a risk at all. And I didn't have to get out of the pool! Thank God! Because I'm not sure I could have been convinced to get out, they probably would have had to drag me out!
