    Re: Birthing poop. When I went in to have my daughter my nurse asked if I wanted an enema so I wouldn't poop during labor. Since she was the one who had to deal with it I asked her what her preference was. She strongly preferred the poop during labor than giving an enema. So much gore comes out that I doubt it makes a big difference. I actually have no idea if I pooped or not and honestly don't care. 

    Great point about some parents abusing the home school system @LiveNLove44. Admittedly, the majority of my interaction is with academically driven kids. There's obviously a wide range of education and experiences in that community. My favorite, and probably most beneficial, class in college was Skeptical, Critical, and Logical Thinking. I agree that it should be taught in high school and college. Subject content can change, be forgotten, not be applicable to your future career, etc. but the ability to think critically is a skill that is useful in all areas in life.

    Oh also if you homeschool your kids I assume 80% of the time they got a substandard education.  Same for if you sent your kids to Waldorf or similar.  (ETA yes I know some people homeschool their kids and it can be the best thing ever.  But I think they are significantly in the minority)
    I have a very good friend who was homeschooled by her mom, and she and all of her siblings are exceptionally smart and successful as adults.  I have noticed that they are lacking in the pop culture department, which is kinda funny at times, but in the grand scheme of things, that doesn't seem all too important.

    I think I generally agree with you, though.  I think they are probably in the minority and can credit their mother, who just happened to be exactly the type of person who can successfully home school (extremely smart and educated and committed).

    I am curious as to how Waldorf relates to that though?  I don't know anything about that program really but thought it was similar to Montessori.
    Waldorf (and Montessori) can be excellent for pre-K type programs but have extremely unusual practices as kids get further on.  Like not teaching kids to read until 3rd grade.  
    This isn't true. Montessori aims to have kids reading by the time they end Kindergarten.

  • A friend of mine got an enema because she was so freaked out about pooping while pushing. Apparently they’ll still give them if you ask!

    My UO is that essential oils are not a stand-in for medicine, and please stop telling me that if I just rubbed oil xyz on my lymph nodes/chest/feet that my asthma/IBS/chronic migraines would be cured. K thx bai.
    This!!!
    I went to one of the "meetings" of the oil users with my mom, and they were talking how it helped a friend of a friend of a friend cure cancer, and it helps so-and-so with the flu better than the medicine... It was driving me nuts! I didn't buy in to it, but my Mom did a little bit. She doesn't think it cures cancer, but every time I talk to her now about how I'm feeling, she tries to tell me to use this or that oil to cure my problems. Just stop! It just makes me not what to talk to her about stuff :'(

  • @npkat I was terrified of pooping because I thought my H would make fun of me forever. I pooped with our first and I knew it because she was cleaning it. I started apologizing to her and laughing because: laughing gas. H and I both laughed about it once but it wasn’t humiliating like I thought it would have been.

    My personal experience...but my parents paid lots of money to put me in a Montessori School and they did not teach me to read.  My parents eventually switched me to public in second grade, because I couldn't read, and I was put in some special reading club that took me out of class and taught me to read and write.  By fifth grade I was in AG reading and writing, so it wasn't a learning disability.  It was most definitely the teaching practices at the Montessori.  I am not saying they are all like this, but her statement definitely holds some weight.

    For that specific thing i was talking about Waldorf.  Montessori isn't as extreme but is less structured.  Which hey, some parents really like.

    Oh that's right I do use the citrus ones to clean the floors in my house. But I also put in vinegar so the oils are mostly for the smell tbh.

  • Thanks to all the responders on the delivery poop.. haha! I know it won't be a big deal per se... they see it everyday and it doesn't mortify me if my husband sees it, but I am like dang what if I stink up the whole room with my poo or something. My husband and I have already had multiple conversations about this hahaha :#

  • I pooped with #2- they cleaned it up so fast I wasn't sure that it happened but DH saw it.

    My mom always told me about how she ate a bunch of corn on the cob and watermelon the day before she had my sister and pooped- I never ate those things close to my due date because that would be horrible.

    The post partum poop was worse with #1 because I tore worse. It wasn't wonderful with #2 either but a little less painful. It makes you feel almost like you're having another baby.
