just as im told they can see the head
"please dont tell me its ginger"
turn around to realise my student mw is ginger.

being wheeled to the delivery room
"dont forget my gas ladyyyyyyy"

when they tried to get me to move to another bed I had a go at a nurse while I was hugging the pillow half asleep.
I told her to get off and go find her own pillow this ones mine.

The MW told me to get in the bath as it would help the pain, and it made me feel worse. I shouted from the bathroom "She said I'd feel better, and I don't! Where's that lying bitch gone???"
And then, also from the bathroom (most of my labour was spent on the loo until my epidural!) I heard OH say to my mum "I feel like I'm in a play that I haven't rehearsed" and I shouted "That's such a GAY thing to say!!!"
And when I was induced, I was given a painkiller that made me really woozy, and when I saw the TOCO contractino thing go up on my monitor, I shouted "RING THAT TOCO BELL!" and laughed for about 3 minutes. At the time, I'd decided "Ring that taco bell" was the taco bell motto, and it was only afterwards I realised it wasn't.

I had been pushing fruitlessly for over an hour, had been in labour for almost 55 hours and was doped up on gas and air, was knackered and I remembered screaming at the top of my lungs "EUTHANISE ME, PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY" over and over!

The first time they examined me in labour I was 10cm dialated and I asked if there was any chance labour would stop now.
While on all fours I said I felt like a farm animal so yelled out "MOOOOOOO" while pushing a few times (it helped!) :cow:
I hugged my bump and wailed that I would miss it and wasn't ready to say goodbye.
When I first saw LO crowning (I was using a birthing mirror) I burst into tears and said "oh wow he's perfect! I love him so much!!!"
Apparently between pushes I would mutter under my breath "Easy, easy this is easy" followed shortly by "Come on Squiggle, we can do this!!" as the next urge came. Squiggle was my bumps name btw.

I told my hubby he was being insensitive because he was sending a message whilst i was having contractions and he should be stroking my hair.

The midwife that tried to make me give natural birth after we had already decided that i was having a caesarean was told to 'f*** off and give me my caesarean!' ( i very nearly kicked her in the head too)

Whilst waiting for the anaesthetist to put in my spinal block i actually started begging her to hurry up. Actually begged

Once the spinal block took effect i thanked each and every one of the people in the operating theatre for being there for me
