Embarrassing moments?

Did you have any embarrassing moments during pregnancy/labor/delivery? Share! If you want to, of course...

I'll start. My water broke just as I was getting out of my vehicle to turn in paperwork for my job. My husband worked with me, so he tried to drive me to the hospital but was too hysterical so we had to pull over a block down the road and I drove myself. Once we got there,  and I stood up, the gushing just kept coming. I was standing at the check-in desk trying to squeeze my legs together and keep it in because there were people in the lobby but there was no holding back once I had to go to my room. I had to walk and, well, yeah...Niagara Falls. Then after I was in my gown and in the bed, the nurse was asking me questions and I passed gas! Twice! My butt kept interrupting her, LoL! I was so embarrassed! I didn't even know it was coming, but she was understanding about it.

That's exactly how it happened with me. But I did manage to get everyone away from me when I couldn't not relieve myself while I was in labor with my first.

I would say in retrospect it was how much I was screaming.  My epidural failed and the pain was insane.  And I was arguing with an awful doctor.

I had my first c-section with DD1. When I was moved to my PP room and the nurse took out my catheter and let me walk around for the first time since the surgery, I stood up, and out fell the BIGGEST BLOOD CLOT EVER. Just like "plop"...it was sooooo embarassing (despite knowing its normal!), and the nurse told me "Don't worry about it honey. This is what I'm here for!"

With my second son, after he came out and my Doc (who had become like a friend during my pregnancy) was about to start sewing me up and big blood clot came shooting out and almost hit her in the face

My first son I peed on myself at the labor and delivery desk.  

My second son I dilated from 4-19 in 30 minutes and my dr was delivering another baby. I practically pushed him out myself.

when I was preg. we were at a check in desk to visit my uncle and I had this looonnnggg loud smelly fart and I couldnt hold it in & didnt have anywhere to walk away to. I tried to play it off but it just smelled so horrible even the lady behind the desk started coughing and tried to act like she didnt smell it. Finally I just apologized and asked for some air freshner so they sprayed it everywhere lol
sssoooo humiliating haha

ETA: while I was pushing everytime I pushed I puked to the point of filling up the bucket. well my dad couldnt switch out the buckets fast enough so I puked all over his arm.

and after I had the baby a nurse came to squeeze my tummy to push the blood out. she asked if I minded if a student nurse watched...at least thats what I thought she said. I fell asleep within a few minutes and she took off my pad and stuff to check me out and when I opened my eyes there was a room full of student nurses and I was soooo uncomfortable & embarassed. I just thought she was gonna squeeze my stomach!
