I'll start shall i?
Just nearly fainted and had to be helped home by some strangers after i did the school run and THEN went sledging in the park afterwards.... I also had a very chilly DS with me who had been lying down in the snow and then decided to whinge all the way home about it. Bloody stupid of me and felt like a proper idiot- must remember i'm pregnant!

I would assume the same threebee smile how odd!
Carrie , they just whip it away, you probably won't even know it's happened.

i was sick at 2pm on a sunday in the middle of the street and very narrowly missed an expensive looking audi! everyone was staring i had tears streaming down my face due to the vomiting and to top it off i didn't even look pregnant so even more weird looks from the public! and i wasn't pregnant but very shortly after giving birth i coughed n peed myself :-/ not my classiest moment! xx

Carrie they just bundle it away without comment smile I pooed with my first, thought it was the baby coming out blush (I was only about halfway through my labour at that point unbeknown to me obv!)

Not really embarrassing but I went into labour whilst eating dinner with OH's work colleagues in the middle of London! Had to get taxi, 45 min train ride, taxi, OH empty car of band stuff, 40 min car ride.
Go to the hospital, and midwife went 'oo lets see if your in labour' little did they know I was ready to push - DD was born 1h 24 min later!

Think we'll go back to the Sushi restaurant on DD birthday - might get to finish dinner this time!

Lots Of puking at tube stations; I was very proud that I never puked on an actual tube - a London Underground staff member congratulated me when I told him.

Ditto re farts although I seem to manage to save them for home so poor old DH gets the brunt.

Ditto re whipping off knickers for early scan which I expected to be TV - fertility treatment made me pretty blasé on that front.

Oh, I ripped the front of my pj bottoms all the way down the seam this week, expsoing a very unkempt ladygarden - to be fair, they are not maternity ones and i am 36 wks with twins but still was pretty horrifying.

I am actually quite reassured that other people have accidentally stripped off for an abdominal scan! I thought I was the only one who had ever done this, and whenever I've mentioned it in real life, people are horrified.

Oh, the wind! I never farted in front of DH prior to pregnancy, but I just couldn't hold it when I was pg! It was so evil on one occasion that DH was convinced the cats had crapped somewhere in the living room. He was shifting furniture to look for it!

I was too embarrassed to tell him the truth.....

I locked myself out the house and had to get a nice policeman to break in for me.

DH was in Europe

Unicorn has made me grin the widest! How mortifying!

Mine was have to be vomiting so hard I wet myself blush Thankfully I was at home so could change. Working on my pelvic floor exercises!

When I was pregnant I would be having a conversation and suddenly from nowhere I'd do this massive loud belch right in the middle of what I was saying.
Happened a few times, and surprised me every time. Pregnancy is so embarrassing - perhaps that's why pregnant = embarrassed in French, Spanish and Italian!

Northernexile Fri 18-Jan-13 22:46:35

I kept falling over. I fell in the street about three times. Just went arse over tit, it wasn't even as if I tripped over anything. I think my centre of gravity had gone to pot altogether, even though I never had a massive bump.

The third time I did it was outside my office. I was just about to finish work, so about 36 weeks, and the window cleaner had to pick me up off the road! blush

DianaTrent Fri 18-Jan-13 22:55:57

threebee, doing a similar job, I can promise you without hesitation that unless your sonographer was incredibly new to the job, they will not have batted an eyelid at you stripping off and will probably have thought you were told to do it by one of their colleagues anyway!

My worst was throwing up all down the side of a very clean, shiny white boat. I feel very sorry for the poor people who had to clean up after me! blush

These embarrassing stories are so funny - I haven't laughed so much in ages grin. Vikinglady - yours has to be my favourite yet!

I fainted in the middle of my office, taking an architects board and one of my colleagues down with me. I came round to find 10 people standing over me looking concerned. I was really quite embarrassed.

Wereonourway just can't stop giggling at the stingray 'In their actual water.' grin. Did they evacuate them?

I taught an entire poetry lesson to my lovely Year 11s (thinking they were acting a bit weird) only to reach down near the end and discover half a cereal bar velcroed to my jumper on the underside of my massive bump. They'd been too polite to say anything to the scary hormonal pregnant lady bless 'em.

PetiteRaleuse Fri 18-Jan-13 23:17:35

I sneezed at work. DD1 was head up and stamping on my bladder pretty much permanently. I don't know if anyone noticed me sneezing and running off to the loo, but I was cringing when I walked back in.

sookiesucksvamps Fri 18-Jan-13 23:27:23

Went to glastobury at 6 months with my ds2 tripped and went arse over tit wearing a skirt unfortunately exposing myself to thousands of revellers as I had removed my rather uncomfortable knickers on the long journey down

Worst moment has got to be when I randomly threw up at work at 27 weeks pregnant - and the retching caused me to wet myself at the same time. You should have seen the looks on the faces of the young girls in the nursery!! So humiliating.

Funnily enough, have taken my pelvic floor exercises much more seriously since then blush

Probably shrieking because the baby kicked me unexpectedly while dh and I were out for super in a restaurant. must have looked like a proper Charlie.

Also falling over in the street at about 9.30pm because my balance had gone when 30weeks on a night out where I'd obviously been on the sort drinks all night. Must have either looked like a trolleyed fat bird, a la 'majorca night's type documentaries or a trolleyed pregnant person, inviting even more judgement. Dear oh dear.

Iheart- they tried to fish it out with a net. I was ushered away by the tour guide to sit on a bus in 30 degree heat with the tour guide and the driver tutting at me.
The sickness was horrendous.
On the day I went into labour i suspected my waters were leaking and rang the labour ward who said to carry on as normal and ring them in a few hours. I had the biggest plate of mince and dumplings for dinner so when I got to hospital I was dying for a poo.
Queue 2 midwives basically watching me have a shit in case it was the baby. It was the biggest poo I've ever had in my life.
Ds weighed 5lb 10oz and I bet the poo didn't weigh much less.
Thought of a labour one too.
Ds was stuck after 2 hours of pushing, emergency button pressed and about 20 people were in room while I signed to say I consented to forceps and possibly ecs. Someone have (now ex) dp some theatre scrubs and he went into bathroom to change.
Ex is 6"4 and over 20 stone and he came out wearing scrubs that must have been extra small, the trousers were like pedal pushers.
Ex came out and said "I can't wear these!" Everyone in the room burst out laughing, surgeon, 2 midwives, anaesthetist, students, everyone.

I can see the funny side now, at the time ds was stuck, epidural had worn off and I remember screaming "you will fucking wear them!!". God the shame.
Kind anaesthetist got dp some bigger ones, he still looked like a tit!

I fainted in the staff loos at work and had to be taken to hospital in front of the whole school by ambulance. Not my finest hour admittedly.

iamci Sat 19-Jan-13 08:31:47

Love this. weareonourway, iheartKingthistle and VikingLady - thank you. I laughed so much weed myself! Which happens quite a bit at the mo blush

WeeS Sat 19-Jan-13 13:31:32

Haha, these are so funny smile

I was at a party with my DPs family at xmas and sneezed, but whilst doing so farted. Probably the loudest I've ever ever done, and the fact I was sitting on a wooden seat seemed to amplify that and the vibrations it created blush

After the mw gave me back my wee-wee sample as she didnt have anywhere to dispose of it - ? in a drs surgery? anyway, I digress - it fell out of my bag whilst doing my weekly shop and rolled down the aisle. I had to run after it which made me look even redder in the face. In fact, it's still in my bag, I'd better get rid of it lol

Bicnod Sat 19-Jan-13 13:37:07
