For first timers: After you deliver they say they can't release you until you have a BM. Tell them to go jump in a lake! Especially if they try to talk you into using a laxative like Fleet or something. THAT is a nightmare! Especially if you have a lot of stitches and can't hold it long enough to make it to the bathroom. Maybe Take a gentle stool softener and you will poop when you poop! I think our intestines slow down for a while so we don't have to have a bm for a few days after delivery.
Just my 2 cents...

I appreciate all the hints but now I am worried about so many more things. I just wish the L&D part was over already and I was home with a healthy baby.TTC since 2006.
Finally PG in June 2011!

Heather - I think we tend to hear about all the exceptions, most labors are very normal. I found that taking a natural labor class was EXTREMELY helpful. Even though I ended up choosing an epidural during my first delivery, I knew what to expect throughout the entire process, which made everything much easier. Most hospitals offer classes at a very reasonable rate, and they usually are once a week for a couple of weeks. Birth is a miracle, and you'll be glad you experienced it. How far from your due date are you?Me (36) DH (39) - endo diag at 23 (too late to save tubes), MF, TTC 6 yrs b4 1st
