Few people in the world will find this amusing…thought you might be one of them.Â A co-worker told me 5 minutes ago that she was uber constipated while pregnant due to her triple dose of iron pills and the fact that poopingÂ is a chore for herÂ to begin with.Â While giving birth — not sure if it was at the same time or just during labor — her contractions helped her poop along the way.Â Well, her daughter weighed in at 5lbs and THE PILE OF SHIT WAS 10 lbs!Â Â The nurses actually weighed itÂ because they thought it was so funny! Unreal.
(DOOCE NOTE: That woman may just beat me when it comes to the contest of constipation. And pooping during labor is MUCH more common than people are willing to admit. I am not willing to admit that I pooped three times during labor, because admitting that would be gross. And this website is totally not about being gross. Or about poop.)
