Oddest things you did during labor/right after birth?

Posted by   + Show Post

I know when I was in labor I asked my husband to download a Tom Petty album and I listened to it on repeat lol

Then, after he was born, I don't remember this, but I had my boobs out as people were visiting and I said, "if you don't want see 'em, get out" (not like me) I also told my cousin's girlfriend that she wasn't allowed to hold DS because I didn't know her and I didn't like her name because it sounded like a porn star. her name was Lexie. again...not like me at all and I don't remember any of it lol

Do you have any odd stories?

My first was an emergency c section. We were still newlywed and I had only farted in front of him one time and I blamed the baby. I wouldn't have but I seriously thought I would explode. Anyways I farted under my blanket because it's painful after a stomache surgery. I knew this from y appendectomy. Right then he says, "here let me fix your blanket" and I screamed "no!" but it was too late.

He lifts the blanket and let out this horrid smell. I was mortified (and trapped). He said, "ugh. My mouth was open and everything".

He didn't touch my blankets after the 2nd or 3rd baby. Lol.

My SO ans I weren't living with eachother at the time our DS was born. I went into the hospital on Friday night, but they told me that I wasn't having constant contractions so sent me home. They said it would be any day though. So on Saturday, SO was annoying me so I told him to go home. Sunday morning around 7am, I went to my moms and said she had to take me to the hospital. I tries calling SO to tell him, but he didn't answer. About 10am they broke my water, so I tried calling again. No answer. I called his mom and told her what was going on. She just hung up on me. Lol.

By the time SO and MIL got there, I was already drugged up. They ran to town to get money out of the ATM and I guess my sister had to call him and say 'hurry up. I just heard the doctor say they see brown hair.' He came flying up the stairs and into the room white as a ghost! Lol

During labor, I screamed and kept saying I can't do this. Just cut him out! They had to put oxygen on me because I was getting short of breath. My doctor told me to 'man up' or she was.just going to get up and leave.

My SO almost fainted, so they had to get him juice and made him sit down. Lets just say my mom had to cut the cord. Lol

I had my first at a teaching hospital. It seemed like everyone wanted to stick their fingers in my vagina.

Poor nurse came in with another gang. And I said

"Next one to stick a finger in my vagina isn't getting it back"

After leaving the hospital I still hadn't pooped so about 2 days after I finally was able to go poop.( Making it 6 days without pooping) when I pooped it was hard like a snickers bar and like a foot and half long. It clogged the toilet and wouldn't flush so I had to take it out and put it in the garbage. Most disgusting thing ever!!

Let's see, with my dd, they had given me Stadol for the pain until I was dialated enough for the epidural. I kept yelling at ex-hubby to straighten that stuff up on the end table in the corner of the room..... there wasn't anything on the table!! While the guy was trying to get my epidural in, I kept moving. I told the nurse to give me another shot so I would be calm. She did and I fell asleep in her arms while the guy was putting it in. Lol

With ds1, my ob was doing a perineal massage to keep me from tearing. I didn't know and ended up asking him what the fuck he thought he was doing?? He pulled his hands back and was like sorry!! Lol I also shook so bad after he was born. I felt like an earthquake was going off inside me.

Nothing funny or out of the ordinary happened with ds2.
