Am 6 months pregnant and all is well other than this. Have had skin irritation around rectum and a feeling of pressure for awhile but recently have had incontience of bowel movements. Have had the sensation of a "leakage" (possibly causing the skin irritation)but nothing showing until lately and now it's definitely a problem. Has anyone else had this? I had a 4th degree tear last year with my first delivery. Dr says we'll watch the weight this time and may need a c-section, but am hoping its not necessary. Please help me understand this.
