What's the most embarrasing thing that happen to you while pregnancy or while in labor?

OK so the nurse acted like this wasn't a big deal but I was mortified!

I went in for my OB check today and when I went to the bathroom to leave my urine sample I lost a HUGE chunk of my mucus plug RIGHT in the cup of urine!

I didn't want to stick my hand in there to retrieve it because...um...ewww so I had to go out and tell the nurse that there was a huge chunk of mucus in my urine sample!

I'm still embarassed just thinking about it!

What embarassing thing has happen to you while pregnant or in labor?

  • so funny, do you have labor pains? With my son while I was in labor I finally dozed off, didn't have the epidural yet and my ob and nurse tried to stick in an internal monitor on my son's head while I was sleeping. I thought I made it clear early on not to touch with that NO NO NO!!!! Naughty naughty!! Well they woke me up while they were doing it and I was so pissed I started kicking both legs to get it out and screaming at them!!! lol it was so funny every one knew not to mess with me after that one!!

  • When I was in labor with my first, I had to have diarrhea. I've read that can be normal for some women and that it's your body's way of cleaning things out. I already had my IV in and they were out of IV stands that had wheels. So, my husband had to hold the IV bad next to me while I had diarrhea. I was so embarrassed, but had been in labor for 8 hours and was exhausted by then.

    With this pregnancy (my third) I fainted at the dr office at 7 weeks pregnant when they went to draw blood.

  • I told them I didnt want anyone in between my legs at all and no mirror, I guess they thought I was being kill joy and when I woke up from a very short nap between contractions I saw a mirror and my mother between my legs :(
    I freaked out so bad and went into a contraction and I made a poopie right there in front of my mom, a nurse and MYSELF in the Effin Mirror, I cried my eyes out and I started SCREAMING at the nurse!
    I will NEVER go back to that hospital again, they should have respected my wishes, but NOOOO!!!!

  • when i was pushing i peed everywhere. lol. yeah it was embarassing, but i was so focused on just pushing and getting her out that i didn't even care.

    and when i was pregnant, the uncontrollable gas was pretty embarassing. =] lol

  • When I was pregnant with my son I had been out shopping and stepped off the edge of the sidewalk to make room for someone passing me. I ended up stepping funny and falling on my ass, I could have died of embarrassment, I was like 7 1/2 months and the woman was freaking out. I was fine, but I just wanted to run and hide!
