Hi, I have had I.B.S since I was about 14, I find that I still have to plan my life around it a little, even though it has become a lot more manageable since my mid twenties.
I would love to hear from anyone who can give me any advice or spurt on how they delt with I.B.S and labour. On the topics below, or anything you found helped.
My two biggest questions are: is labour pain similar to I.B.S. contractions?
This is my BIG question/worry/fear
I know that people often poop during transition, and in water they scoop it out, but I rarely have a formed stool, so what happens if I have diarrhea while in the birthing pool?
Thank you for your help bub hubbers!
