Where's the most embarrasing place you've thrown up?

I threw up on the bus on the way to work this morning. I'm mortified! Luckily I had a carrier bag in my pocket and I was able to throw up into that, but there was loads of it and it stank and I'm sure everyone was staring at me. Then I had to carry the horrible stuff with me when I got off the bus.

I can't be alone, so where is the most embarrasing place you've thrown up?

I was sick all over the back seat of a bus. Several times I jumped off just quick enough to be sick by the wheels. I dread to think what people thought of me.

I managed to throw up at the customs desk in Moscow... poor girl did not speak English, I did not speak Russian so we just looked at each other. Then 3 hours later I managed to get sick in the reception area of the Ritz Carlton. All this on a business trip with colleagues..at 22 weeks....how professional!

On the local high street - on a busy Saturday morning - directly in front of a police van... Classy!

Central Line at White City. The shame...

Not embarrassing but bloody inconvenient: all over me, the steering wheel, dashboard and windscreen. Doing 70 odd on the M1.

The only benefit to having 2 hg pregnancies: a couple of good stories for this thread smile

At 12 weeks pg with DS1 I was teaching a new class (drama). About a minute into the warmup everything went wonky. I ran for the bin, a big dustbin in the corner. Threw up noisily then passed out into the bin. My new class of y12 students whom I had met the day before had to pull me out as I was unconscious, head first in the dustbin.

At 16wks and feeling a little improved, DH and I attempted some sexy time. I promptly vomited all over his chest and face.

I threw up into a waste paper basket in a meeting this time, before realising it was a wire basket with no bag in. I just stood there with my puke seeping onto my feet.

Crickey. I'm a disaster lol. I'm sure there's more smile

St. Pancras station blush yes I was wine hic, hic, hic.

I was I eating at the time, and had given up the booze. One of my bf's is a bit wild, and ou can guess the rest...

Longdistance Tue 16-Jul-13 21:06:18

I was dieting, that should read.

Longdistance Tue 16-Jul-13 21:07:45

Omg, just realized, this is in pregnancy.

I was not pg at the time. This was pre dh.

Hahahahaha grin I threw up into my favourite and not inexpensive handbag and had to finish my commute with the stench of sick coming from there. On the upside I felt so ill I didn't give a monkeys what anyone was thinking

chocolatemartini Tue 16-Jul-13 21:11:40

(I was pg)

A few months ago, I threw up at the top of a hill in the park. I was coughing, out of breath, thinking how unfit I was then just vommed. All over my shoes. Turned out I had food poisoning! A very nice couple came over to help me then I vommed again, whilst they tried to help me clean my shoes with leaves. That was a shit day.

CharlieAlphaKiloEcho Tue 16-Jul-13 21:13:45

HG related for me too - In poor DD's Halloween bucket that was full of sweets in full view of a couple of policemen who were sent by my ex claiming I had broken into his house to steal documents.

I just looked from them, to my huge bump to the pumpkin of sick and said "Do I look like I could shimmy up a drainpipe??"

They made a hasty exit after that grin

Before HG I had a fear of being sick in front of people so the first few weeks were torture. I remember asking the midwife to leave my room when I was in hooked up to the drip!

But after being sick in the gutter several times on the school run I grew out of that.

RNJ3007 Tue 16-Jul-13 21:15:20

During pregnancy with DD, on my CEO!!! Knees down. Including very expensive shoes. Damn HG.

This pregnancy - out of classroom window, in bin in front of Y7, on line manager's floor, in reception of hospital... Driving round a roundabout on way to work - pulled a u turn and went home!!! Again, damn HG!

The library. Oh god.

Paris denfert rochereau station, 16 weeks pregnant and feeling like hell. Thought I would risk going into work, then smelt the musty air in the station....i threw up on platform, then staggered to throw up in the bin, and all these beautiful Frenchwomen crowded round me fussing and concerned but my basic French flew out of my head so I'm stuck throwing up everywhere and trying to gesture to them that I'm pregnant. They finally dragged me to a chair, fetched me water and called a dr, who I threw up over blush

titzup Tue 16-Jul-13 21:23:58

this thread's giving me nightmares, I'm a bit scared/weird about sick, luckily didnt actually throw up too much when pg, but i loved the pumpkin-of-sick-policemen story!

Oddsocksrus Tue 16-Jul-13 21:27:33

I went in to tell the MD that I was pregnant (my line manager at the time)
Said 'I'm.....' And Threw up into his bin...
'I guessed' said the boss 'errrr congratulations? Are you being sick a lot?'

LottyLikesWindows Tue 16-Jul-13 21:40:45

Hahaha, these are brilliant. I was thinking just the other day how invisible public pregnant puking is. Clearly it's alive and well here.
I projectile vomited out of my car at a busy intersection recently, and once in the staff loos at work. Nothing odd there, except that it was witnessed by a window fitter who happened to remove the glass just as I was hurling apples and cherries all over the cubicle.
The shame!

bailiffsareevil Tue 16-Jul-13 21:46:58

Oh my goodness this has put my sick venues into perspective!!!

My worst was in the middle of waitrose (not very naice) and in the middle of Centre Court mall in Wimbledon. Actually haven't been back since - daren't show my face.

belle you made me laugh, ds1 is looking at me like this confused smile SOrry i shouldn't laugh hg is a bitch sad

With ds2 i got caught on a train and all toilets were out of action and ended up spewing in the doorway between carriages blush Didn't mind too much tho as it was just ms rather than the hg that i had with ds1!

Waterloo station, in rush hour, hundreds of people walking past tutting, had just finished a carton of Ribena - yuck!

In the middle of town near a brick wall. I was crouched down hoping no one would see me when two teenagers came and asked me if I was ok. I could have died haha.

Then about 20ft away I did the same thing. Right outside of a nightclub. I hid in the little alcove thing where it was. Didn't realise at the time how bad that must've looked hahaha. Luckily I had a bag with me that time.
