They should give you colace. Which is a stool softner with my first I had a second degree tear omg it hurt worse than labor. My first poo luckily was not bad as I took the colace as said plus a little extra. Just make sure you take that colace and I used the water bottle forever after I had him. It took me about 3 4 ish months to feel ok downthere.
Thanks for the quick response I has a 2nd degree tear. They didn't give me anything, the midwife came yesterday to visit and they are due back tomorrow. I have managed to have a poo final, it did hurt a little but just sat there and let things happen on there own accord.
Bless you. :) I hope you don't.
Not forcing anything at the moment. :)
Hope your labour goes OK. Xx
