The supper before my last birth I had this huge craving for roast beef and mashed potatoes, I ate like 2 plates! I usually do not eat like that, but felt like I really needed it, and the energy boost. Well at midnight things started off with a bang as usual. While in the van driving in I started pushing, I made a huge mess everywhere, over and over again! No one ever mentioned a thing, and my husband had it all cleaned up when he got back to the van hours later. But it still happened. I also did the same thing in a smaller amount at another birth.
Can someone please help me to understand how this all works and be honest about what the chances are of it happening againÉ And what kind of dangers there are do this, and how me and my husband can deal with it. I want to birth the first baby in water and will move out if baby two is breech.
Ya, I should probably remind hubby about that! LOL!
How dangerous is it for the baby? If I do not notice it, does hubby need to make sure it is dealt with right away? Maybe I am just fussing too much? I just know that at one time infection was a huge part of infant and maternal death, I am not sure as to if this has something to do with that or not.
Thank you everyone for all of your advice, the more we make it into this pregnancy, the more I am sure that these babies need me to be able to focus on the job at hand. Hope to stay out of the HOSPITAL.
If you're GBS+ or had any infections besides that you'd probably get antibiotics in labor, that's the only contamination worry for baby, everything else is just getting introduced to normal flora, mostly beneficial stuff. I've heard of using an aquarium net to clean out any solid messed in the water.
