I projectile vomited all over her felt so bad! They had to call the cleaners in to change the bed and clean the floor.

Oh and as the anesthesiologist was leaving I said 'thanks man, you are awesome!' since I had been screaming for an epidural for hours (really intense and long back labour, I wussed out).
You're definitely not a wuss for having an epidural. Ive only had gas and air for my labours but my back labour i was begging for the epi. Only i couldn't have one because my labour, fortunately, was very quick.

When i had my 3rd bub in 2014 i was very constipated. With my 1st two i had a big clear put for 2/3 days prior. So no poop left by the time i was in labour.
So to my shock and horror my labour wasn't progressing because i was so back up. Midwife asked me to go for a wee to see if my bladder might have been full. When i got on the toilet i realized i needed to poop, so she walks in mid poop and intense contraction and was like whoa i see babies head and ran and put her gloves on. It was agony without my gas and air lol i tried so hard to finish but bub was sat right there. So sure enough i finished the rest of my poo on the bed as baby was being born. I was mortified and im sure DH was too lol
My mw kept telling me i did so well, i was like no you did so well!

I have a funny moment from my labour for sure.

It was pretty intense until I got the epidural at about 7-8cm. Since it worked well, I was relaxed, laying in the bed and chatting with my mom. At that time, OH decided to go down the corridor to the coffee shop for a cookie and a coffee.

He came back and I went from being relaxed and chatting to being poised on all fours on the bed with the air machine attached to my face and about 10-15 other docs and nurses rushing around. We laugh about it, remembering how he was just casually walking down the hall back to my room with his little cookie having no idea what was going on.

(All was well-we figure baby had descended at that time, positioning her at a different angle, making it difficult to register the hb).

I have a funny labour story that I keep meaning to post the last few weeks. During my labour I had the tens machine on which was helping me alot to cope with the contractions and after a while it felt like it wasn't helping as much and the OH kept upping the strength of the pulses so I could feel them but I couldn't notice them. Eventually we realised that the batteries were flat and the midwife went to get some more. After she replaced the batteries she turned it back on without checking the control and I got a full voltage charge shooting through my whole body. I was standing next to the bed at the time and let out an involuntary scream as it felt like I was being electrocuted and my legs collapsed to the floor. My poor OH panicked thinking that it must be a really bad contraction as I hadn't done that before but luckily the midwife realised fairly quickly what was happening and turned the tens down to a more comfortable level. Lol at the time I didn't see anything funny about it but later after my little girl was born and I was talking to my mother I remembered the incident and in telling her the story we were all in stitches laughing at what had happened.

My second child was born at home unexpectedly on our bathroom floor in a very quick labour. My dad walked through the door and I remember just screaming and being inconsolable saying ring me and ambulance at the time I think they thought I was over exaggerating. I got in the car with my partner to go to the hospital for 30 seconds down the road and felt his head crowning. turned back round I was banging the door screaming at 4am in the morning so all the neighbours could hear. My dad finally answered and I just screamed I can feel his head coming out (embarrassing because my dad is so not that sort of person...) anyway I went In to the bathroom with my partner and he delivered him, the paramedics on the phone were telling him to get me on my back and I was screaming at them telling I'm not effing getting on my back (major back labour)... After delivering my son the paramedics turned up 5 mins later cut the cord Etc. I got up to go downstairs to the ambulance and the paramedics said to me do you not want to put some pants on as you are about to go out in public? I was completely butt naked and hadn't even thought. I put my pants on and obviously realised I had a huge cord hanging out of me, literally dragging on the floor so I was like what do I do with this? They said whatever you want, so I tucked the umbilical cord in to my pants so embarrassing.

Anyway my partner cleaned the bathroom that night and realised I had pooed all over the floor which was covered in bloody towels. He hadn't even noticed even though he was down there the whole time!

With my first born I remember crying saying I need to poo I need to poo and they were like no the baby's head is crowing. I was like no I need to go to the toilet can you help me get to the toilet. I didn't believe them that no the babies head was actually coming out!

Also remember something about my daughters birth. I kept pushing for hours and she wouldn't come out at all, eventually the midwife said to me do you need to pass urine? And I said no. Anyway after about ten minutes of me saying no definitely not she cathetered me, I filled up a whole bucket thing and it over flowed everywhere and the babies head came out and the wee was still coming out and some went on her head. I had drank 2 jugs of water because the gas and air made me so Thirsty without passing urine once!

Hi all, with my labour nearly 5 years ago, few funny things, everyone knows the involuntary pushing that starts when your at or nearing 10cm, well that was at its peak as I was mooing all over the room, to which I started to poop with every push I didn't mean or do myself, my midwife was wiping it away like it was nothing my little boys dad and my mum were crying laughing me at the time was not haha, so after that fiasco, that wasn't so funny but everytime I tell this 1 I still giggle, my midwife says I'm going to take a little peak to see what's happening so she lifted the sheet and I was laying on my side put her face pretty much right Infront of my lady bits and I let out a very airy yet loud fart right in her face, not meant but it still happened at the time I was fuzzy from the diamorphone to care but afterwards dear lord I could have died hahaha also my babies dad shouted PULL PULL with panic as I was pushing, that didn't go down well haha xxxxxx
