  • I did... my mom was in the delivery room with me, and three and half years later, she still teases me about. I dont' find it embarrassing, just one of the not so pleasant facts of life. It can be a detail you leave out if you want. No one will be sad if you fib about THAT !

  • I did ,but i didn't find out till afterwards when my oh so wonderful husband thought it would be funny to tell me.

  • I did with all 3 of mine, never knew I was doing it though - it was a mixture of being funny afterwards and me being embarrased

  • Not me. But I have heard of it and that no one really cares about it. My friend peed on the Dr. but again it was no big deal to the nurses or Dr. she said. I think she was more embarrassed then anything.

  • I didn't! I did have diarrhea the whole morning before, though. The doctor said it was the body's natural way of cleansing out the colon before birth so there wouldn't be any pooping accidents. Apparently not all women's bodies get the memo, though. Lmao.

  • Not me ... although my son didn't descend enough to put a whole ton of pressure on that area (ended up with a csection). I did vomit though!!!
