Has anybody ever successfully thrown up into those little trays that hospitals give you??

I know I couldn't fill up a trash can, and I know that they measure how much you've vomited but it still doesn't appeal to me.
I don't like it when my vomit splatters me in the face.

  • Yes, when I was delivering my dd, I filled up a few of those little things. How fun was it for the nurse who had to take it? EW EW EW!

  • They gave me the bucket type thing. I guess they didn't want to risk it with me. I puked about 20 times at least when I was in labor . . . maybe more. It was so awful.

  • Lauren - i don't know where it came from. I've had strange scenarios and questions pop into my head.
    This one stemmed from reliving my son's birth. I was going into preterm labor, and they had loaded me up on steroid shots in my ass for the baby's lungs, and... I forget what it was, but something to stop the labor, and a few other things. I was so loaded - I was floating.
    They gave me clear liquids only, and I'm a violent puker, so when they handed me this tiny little tray to throw up in, all I did was stare at her. And my DH just snickered in the corner. :]
    Ah, the memories.

  • I puked in one of those when I had my son. I had a c-section and was having side effects. Sooo...

    I do know what you mean.
