I'm afraid if I poop too hard, I'll start labour.


Dignity? Pfft. Silly girl.

If you're pushing and straining in the same area that you'll be pushing and straining in during labor couldn't you accidentally push the baby out? In short, no.

Constipation is often a charming accessory that comes with pregnancy so it may add to your straining fears. It will not cause a miscarriage that wasn't going to happen anyway and, well, it's important to poo. Hemorrhoids are a more likely outcome but... You know what? Forget you read that. It's all good. You're a glowing vessel of life so live in ignorance for as long as you can, my little petal.

Now go poo.
