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 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.

It's strictly sat by my head or lose a bollock

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!

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

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

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

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.

TinkyPeet Sat 19-Jan-13 22:32:57

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

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

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.

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 !

Thank you! I have just laughed so much.....so glad I've been like Hitler about my pelvic floor exercises!

florry88 Sat 19-Jan-13 21:16:37

TinkyPeet Sat 19-Jan-13 20:55:36

Omfg!!! I absolutely just cried my face off laughing at that!!! 'I can see your minge!!' Aaaaaahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!

CarriePie Sat 19-Jan-13 14:48:13

Oh my goodness that swimming pool story is the funniest thing I have EVER read!!

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

Here it is - bloody hilarious - sorry TSC for raking that one up again grin

Bicnod Sat 19-Jan-13 13:34:31

Where's the swimming pool minge thread? That'll make you feel better. will try and find it...

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

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

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.

Wereonourway Sat 19-Jan-13 08:18:10

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!

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.
