Re: Nervous about #2...
I never got checked once during this pregnancy or even during labor. I know when he was crowning she worked on opening me up more (I think) but not one check. My MW could tell without touching where I was at with labor. When she got there I was only 1 hour or so from pushing. Oh... I definately pooped even though I had several times the days before. So they are used to it. I told her during a pushy contraction that I needed to poop and she says "well poop then." All they did then was use the little fish net and grabbed it out with that.
