    19 Hilariously Embarrassing Childbirth Stories That'll Make You Laugh Until Your Stomach Hurts

    But it's totally worth it, swear.

    We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the funniest thing that happened while they were in labor and the responses were awkward, embarrassing, and totally hilarious:

    1. "I was having a really bad contraction and going, 'mmmmm', but as the contraction got more intense, it became, 'mmmmMOOO'. I literally mooed. Like a cow."

    2. "The hottest doctor I'd ever seen came in to check my cervix, and then he stood up and said, 'She's got quite a lot of hair!' I was enraged, because I hadn't seen my feet in weeks, let alone had time to trim up down there! After my rage subsided, I realized he was referencing my baby's hair, not my vagina."

    3. "I'd been given laughing gas, and it caused me to grope my mom's breasts, laughing and saying, 'Ha ha, boobies!'"



    4. "We were headed to the hospital, and we got stuck behind a school bus. I was screaming my head off in pain, when I looked up and saw all the kids on the bus staring at me, terrified!"

    5. "I found out the hard way that demerol makes me hallucinate when I grabbed my husband's arm after a contraction and told him, 'We have to leave this planet. It's gone barren.'"


    6. "We went for an early morning walk to get labor started, and my water broke. The combination of warm water and a crisp, frosty morning made my crotch start STEAMING. My husband pointed and laughed for about ten minutes, and I had to waddle home wet and steaming."

    7. "I was pushing when some old guy in shorts and a cardigan walked into my birthing suite. I yelled, 'Get the fuck out, old man!'...only for my midwife to inform me that he was actually the obstetrician. My bad."



    8. "During labor, I was only allowed to eat popsicles, and I was so sick that every time I threw up, I vomited a different color of the rainbow. It was a pretty colorful room!"

    9. "My first baby was a home birth, and things progressed unexpectedly fast. My husband opened the front door to see if our midwives had arrived yet, revealing me screaming through contractions in the background...and our future neighbors looking at the house for sale across the street, who definitely heard me."

    10. "I was drugged for my C-section, during which time I apparently smacked my doctor on the ass, so she had them tie my arms down. I have no memory of this."


    —Allie Still, Facebook

    11. "I had a full delivery room and my water broke all over my dad, my husband...and my Nana."

    12. "I told the nurse I felt pressure down there, then when she checked my dilation, I farted and said, 'Nevermind.'


    —Rachel Kendall, Facebook

    13. "My mom was holding my pillow and comforting me when I had a really bad contraction. I tried to bite the pillow and ended up biting her arm, leaving a bloody blister."

    14. "I screamed to my nurses, 'Just euthanize me!'"


    15. "I had been given some meds, and when the male doctor came in the room to check my cervix, I said, 'Shouldn't you buy me dinner first?' My husband just face palmed."

    16. "After receiving my epidural, I put my hand on my own thigh, gasped, and asked my mother, 'Is that you? You've got to tell me what lotion you use!' She almost peed herself laughing."

    17. "It was after midnight and I was in the middle of a home birth in our third floor apartment. The baby had just started crowning when there was a knock at our door. To our complete shock, it was a COP! One of my neighbors had made a noise complaint!"


    "When my sister-in-law told him I was having a baby, he left, mortified."


    18. "I had just gotten an epidural, and my husband was holding my hand, when he brought it up to his face to kiss it. Apparently I then grabbed his nose between my fingers and said, 'I got your nose!'"

    Paramount Pictures

    19. "I had a long labor, and my mom came to my side to give my husband a break. During a particularly bad contraction, she told me it was going to be OK and that it would be over soon. I yelled back, 'You have no idea what this feels like!'"


    "She had a pretty good laugh about that."
