do babies poop in the womb?

if not where does it go?? does it stay there and that is why they poop so much when they come out?? do they just not eat. but thn they would starve i do not understand. oerhaps babbys do not know how to poop and so their mom must fish it out from inside them. can any pregnant women weigh in on this????

    The first thing you should know is that fetal defecation in the womb is not standard. Since their intestines are barely developed, fetuses amass their wastes into a conglomerate of greenish feces that is known as meconium. Unlike the feces of older children or adults, meconium is completely sterile and odorless. It's stored as solid waste within the infant's  bowel. 

    Since fetuses don’t get proper meals in the womb, meconium forms in a very different way than our feces do. Meconium mostly contains mucus, bile, intestinal epithelial cells, and the fine body hairs known as lanugo. It also contains vernix caseosa, which is a normal sebaceous secretion that lubricates the epidermis. 

    Babies pass the meconium in their bowel after delivery.

    In late pregnancy, they can. It's not good for them, they can inhale it as they practice breathing, and that can cause respiratory problems once they're actually born.

    But in general they don't poop while in utero. They aren't really eating, after all... they're getting all their nutrients through the placenta.

    They sort of poop, but it's not like the poop of a person outside the womb. It's called meconium and it's made up of things swallowed in the uterus, from lanugo and mucus to amniotic fluid and bile.

      Okay well I was going to give input, but not if that's the response to valid answers.   Did you seriously just try to use "retard" as an insult?
