funny/ embarrasing labour stories


Hey just wondered if any of you had any funny or embarrasing moments in your labour?
I'm feeling a bit down and could do with a laugh xx

When I went into labour I was really controlled until it came to the emergency section, then I was quite hysterical, the anaesthetist had really bad breath and was right in my face explaining things to me and in my drugged up hysterical state I thought I whispered to my DH "get her away from me, she f***ing stinks" but I actually shouted it at the top of my lungs over and over again apparently, oops!!!

The one thing that kinda cracks me now. I was laboring hard (5 minute long contractions with very little down time) and after a few hours of this decided to transfer to hospital (planned homebirth). Once we were all pack and I was dressed. I was standing in the bedroom with my MW in the middle of a contraction and she stops and wants to wash my sheets because there was a bit of blood on them. I could barely speak but managed to say " no. Cheap. Target. $20.". I mean really like a bit blood on my bedding is the one thing I care about in that moment.

i had a natural birth in the birthing centre attached to my local maternity unit, it was all very calm and serene in the early stages, i floated around the pool, progressing slowly but nicely, when suddenly all hell broke loose. Id just been checked about 25 mins before and was 4/5 cm, so we were expecting things to be a while yet... Suddenly i REALLY needed to push, midwife was telling me that it was way too early to be baby, and that perhaps i needed to use the toilet... i was sure it wasnt that, but agreed to try anyway, so got out of the pool and onto the loo. while there, transition hit, and i suddenly got SOOO hot, the student midwife ran off to fetch some ice cubes for DH to rub on my forehead etc, but when she arrived with them i grabbed a handful and shoved them into my mouth, suddenly, a HUGE contraction hit me, and i needed the G&A but had a mouthful of ice, so i spat the ice all over the floor :-o
there i was, sat on the toilet, naked, dripping wet, mooing like a cow, and spitting on the floor.. oh the shame!
turns out i went from 4/5cm to 10cm in less than a hour, and my daughter was born very soon after this!

there was also a little moment when i was pushing when i really wanted to inflict some pain on my DH, so i grabbed 'his' arm and dug my nails in as hard as a could, only to feel the arm whipped away, i opened my eyes to find that id actually injured the student midwife, and left 4 huge cuts in her arm from my nails!!

lol also just remembered that at one point the midwife made me get out of the pool to check progress, and i really didnt want to... later on, in the midst of the transition drama i said 'IM SOOOOOOOOOO SORRRY I CALLED U A BITTTTTTTTTTCCCCHHHHH' and she said 'noo u didnt, its ok' and i told her that i did, she was just out of the room at the time lol

i'm not sure if this is very funny but....
my husband ordered in jimmy johns for dinner and sat on the couch eating VERY loudly while i was waiting for my epidural.
i glared at him and told him i hoped he choked and died on that sandwich.
the nurse then asked him to finish eating outside for my sake

Haha I was doing the samething and I was so hot, so I had the window all the way down and it was snowing. The snow was pouring into the car and OH was shivering

Also in the admitting office I was having strong contractions, I was bent over the chair moaning while OH gave the clerk my info. All I remember about it was the clerk saying "thank god she is pre registered". After they had me registered there was an elevator in the admitting office that took you right to labour and delivery. OH and I get in, the door closes and OH says what floor is L&D? I say "ask her"...there was no one else in the elevator with us!

When i was first being examined in hospital, she pulled the covers back and out came a water bottle, she asked what else I had hiding up there

I swear it was next to my leg, I was addicted to water when pregnant
