Sorry that this is so embarrassing but - what would you do?
I didn't have enough time this morning - and just wasn't able to have a bowel movement at home before work.
Now I'm at work and I'm desperate!
But... I really can't face trying to go in a cubicle!
I know it's silly - but I need my privacy! People are going to be able to hear me 'trying' to poo!
Hopefully I can hold on until I get home - but it's ages!
What would you do?
Frankly, I'm happy if I can poo anywhere at all. I think this is where you have to start to let go of your bodily insecurities (and I say that in the gentlest manner possible). The one thing that my first birth taught me is a much reduced sense of modesty.

Announcing the arrival of Clara in August 2013!
I'm like you- modest and with a shy bladder (can't give a sample- never have in my life) and can't 'go' when others might be present. I would take whatever break I'm entitled to and walk to my nearest Starbucks, where the loo is always single-user, with a heavy door, and often down a hall from other patrons. Good luck

At least then you won't be heard by people you may know, and that might help.
Eta: I just realized this is from 5 days ago. Hope you're not still holding it!!
