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!

Almost pregnancy related 2 weeks after giving birth to dd1 I popped into our local shop leaving baby with dh a women in there I used to see on the bus exclaimed loudly "haven' t you had that baby yet " me quietly "yes two weeks ago " Did decide to make a start on my diet though !

Iheart I am actually in tears laughing at your post! That doesn't happen very often.

Not everyone shits themselves in labour, I'm pretty sure I didn't. Certainly no one mentioned it. When my waters broke (after two days of contractions) my insides totally turned to water. Sorry for TMI but I couldn't stop pooing and was panicking that I was going to have the baby down the toilet into a bowl of poo.

I don't think anything desperately embarrassing happened - it was embarrassing enough not finding out til I was 19 weeks gone.

I'm pg just now and I have awful baby brain. A few weeks ago I was in a car park with DP and DS. We got into the car and I sat in the passenger seat while DP strapped DS into the backseat. The people in the car next to us (which I thought was empty) started to drive away. I seen their car move but thought it was ours rolling backwards instead of them driving forwards. I then started screaming at DP in terror thinking we were going to roll through the fence and go flying over the edge of the car park into traffic blush

mrspenny the midwives won't exactly say 'ooh you've just shit' or write it on the notes, they kinda just wipe it away whilst continuing to tell you to push. They don't say a word x

MrsPennyapple Sat 19-Jan-13 22:43:15

I'm sure they are very professional and nice about it smile I'm still sure I didn't though. I shat so much at home there can't have been anything left. (Was only 2.5hrs afterwards that DD arrived.)

Anyway, DP wouldn't have let me forget it if I had.

Catchingmockingbirds Sat 19-Jan-13 22:51:21

I've told DP that if I shit this time he's not to tell me.

TinkyPeet Sat 19-Jan-13 22:57:17

Lol I don't let dh go down that end. It's strictly sat by my head or lose a bollock lol x

grin amazing.

When I was having DS I said I wanted DP to stay up top, but the midwife invited DP to come for a look!

I somehow swapped trolleys with someone else whilst going around Tesco. Got to check out and realised that half the stuff in the trolley I had wasn't mine. So had to go to customer services. The young man gave me a withering look. He then made an annoucement to the whole store, for peopel to check they had the right trolley. I went and hid whilst the person returned my trolley and they and the young man swapped things around. Went back 5 mins later to the resorted trolley, paid and left.
