Anyone have a funny story about their labor/delivery?

My fiance and I have an inside joke about Walker Texas Ranger now. All through my labor I wasn't in hardly any pain so we had the tv on the whole time even while I was pushing. The Tv was on the wall facing the bed. Well while our son was crowning Walker Texas Ranger was just coming on. My fiance was watching me push and as soon as he looked up at the tv he said Chuck Norris was staring directly at my vajayjay watching our son being born. Of course if anyone has watched the show and heard the intro song "When the eyes of a ranger are upon you..." I didn't notice of course because I was pushing but when my fiance told me afterwards I thought it was hilarious. Maybe some day our son will meet Chuck Norris and can tell him the story lol. Another funny thing that I didn't notice was the fact that we named our son Shooter (kind of cowboyish) kind of seems meant to be lol.

  • My daughter was so fast in arriving once we got to the hospital that my husband almost didn't make it into the delivery room. I heard him go into the wrong deliverey room just as the other baby was being delivered yelling, "That d--- well better not be my baby!" He was ushered out by a kind nurse and escourted to the correct delivery room just minutes before our daughter was born.

  • Haha my son was born during Spongebob. We were watchingSunday morning cartoons then all of a sudden everything happened so fast that nobody turned off the tv. It is now ironically his favorite show. He smiles and jumps everytime he hears the theme song come on!

  • When I was in labor the kitchen staff harassed us! I was not allowed to eat anything so it was crazy that they were even interested but they kept calling and asking what I wanted to eat, which was very frustrating given how hungry I was. They would walk into the room when ever they wanted and yell "DIETARY!" Then come back tot ask the tray away. When I finally had an epi they sent my husband out of the room but Dietary could walk right in! Finally the day I left they called up and asked what I wanted to eat so my husband ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and a bowl of tomato soup. My discharge papers came through just when I was leaving. That lady was soooo pissed that I wasn't going to eat the sandwich! I wish I could draw the look on her face!

  • I was scared to push. Not so much a funny story but some parts are.
    My son was being born and it was my first so I didn't know what to expect. As he was crowning 10 pm. March 31 98 I got scared when the Dr's says we can see the head one more push and your son will be here. Well stupid me decided I wasn't ready to be a mother and closed my legs. My mom was also in the room and slapped me clear upside my head because what I didn't know was he couldn't breath. His oxygen was getting lower and lower. Instead of my Grandmother who was also in there coaching looking to see if my son was okay she thought it was a good idea to tell me what color I was down there. I'm light skinned but apparently dark down there. I laughed and finally began to push as I wanted all of those Dr's from between my legs including my son's father and my mom.

  • My DH was watching the Dr work and when it came time to numb me up for the episotomy he said and I quote "OMG did you see the size of that needle!!!" He had a death grip on my arm and nearly passed out. LOL

  • I went to the hospital because I thought my water broke. They said no. I left but was having contractions off/on all day. Decided to go back "just in case" that afternoon. I go in, change into the gown & the nurse goes to check me & just turns & runs out of the room. I was like "What?!" She come running back in and everyone is rushing around to take me down the hall out of the triage room because the baby's head was so close to coming out that the nurse had bonked her on the head with her fingers when she went to check me! She was like "Can't you tell the baby's head is right there?" I was like "Look, I've been in pain for days. Everything is uncomfortable right now. I can't tell!" So I pretty much just walked in to L & D and had the baby. We were "that close" to having her in the car. If we had waited even a few more minutes we would have had her on the highway instead!
