My waters broke when I was in the bath in the hospital, so when the midwifes got me out, they put a hospital gown on me and took me to the birthing suite. It wasn't tied right and I was sat on the ball leaning against the bed and it kept falling forward. It was driving me insane and after one particularly intense contraction when it fell forward, I literally ripped it off and threw it across the room like the Incredible Hulk! Lol!!!
I spent the rest of my labour naked and only got dressed about 2 hours later lol!!

My mum and hubby stripped me off mid pushing as wanted skin to skin but once on del and once the New midwife examined me (expecting me to be 4cm due to stupid midwife downstairs) everything happened so quickly (because I was right!!) I was still in my maxi dress lol
I remember saying I was pushing whilst leaning on the side of the bed, to which my mum decided to hoist up my dress and check her head wasn't out lol, how embarrassing lol xx

When I was in labour with DD I had a paramedic observing as he was training. I have several snapshot memories of his concerned and confused face, I think I put him off for life .
I was in the pool and on gas and air which makes me totally loopy. There was a thermometer floating int he pool and I "whispered" (read: shouted) to DH that I thought it was a Dairylea sandwich. No idea why there would be a Dairylea sandwich floating in the pool but I was convinced there was and that DH needed to know. The paramedic had to turn away to compose himself.
While I was lounging back in the water I got a bit low and dipped the end of the gas and air mouthpiece in the pool, so that when I blew out it blew bubbles, like a kid blowing bubbles with a straw in their drink. Everyone had a little laugh, but I couldn't get over how funny it was, I'd have a contraction, concentrate and then it would pass and I'd remember the bubble blowing and start laughing again. This went on for far too long and no one else found it funny anymore...

With DS I introduced myself to the MW and asked her name when I arrived at the L&D room. But I kept forgetting and apologising for not knowing her name. After about the 7th time of apologising for not knowing her name she said "you just called me by my name, if you didn't ask how do you know it?" and I told her very seriously "I'm psychic Lorna. But please don't tell anyone" . About 10 minutes later DH arrived and I told him I'd been a "tricky pickle" and forgotton to ask the MW her name. Then she told me I couldn't have the gas an air anymore because it was making me loopy

Not quite a delivery story, but in recovery. I was in labor 36 hours and had no sleep to speak of in that time. They took me to my room afterward and took my son to the nursery. I spent two hours in my room, happily fiddling with stuff and relaxing, getting ready for a couple days stay, organizing...just recovering in general.

Then there was a knock at the door and a cheery woman came in with a bassinet, chirping "I have your baby!"

I was dumbfounded. I forgot there was a baby. I'd never held one before. I forgot they'd be bringing me one. I could only stare in horror, the nurse was asking me what was wrong.

I was very lucid, if a bit out of it. How could I forget they'd bring me a baby???
