10 Funniest Things Said During Labor

pregnant bellyBy the 9th month of pregnancy most women are over the "I'm pregnant!" bliss phase and are trying everything they can to just get that baby out of there. They jump up and down, have sex, stuff themselves with pineapple, force some cod liver oil down -- anything they can to start labor.

But once labor actually starts, many of us start wishing we could keep the baby in. Whether it's out of fear or pain, delerium or ecstasy, sometimes the craziest things come out of our mouths as our precious baby enters into the world.

when i had pushed the head out the doctor told me 'okay, your part is done' and i yelled 'but there is still 3/4 of a baby in there!!!'. he just laughed and pulled him right out. and then when i had to push the placenta out i just said 'eww, that is disgusting.' my doctor said i had one of the more humorous deliveries he had ever done.

I know at one point after hours and hours of labor I grabbed my husband and was whispering 'sneak me some lemonaid. just put a little in the cup and sneak it in. The nurses will never have to know!'. I was so serious, my husband thought I had lost it but I was so tired of ice chips. He never did break and bring me some ;-D.

This was with my last one and I wasn't pushing the baby out, he was just coming out. And I told someone to grab the baby because it felt like he was just going to fall out. And when the baby's head was out my fiancee' sneezed and I said Bless you. lol. I don't know why force of habit even though I was in labor ugh.. lol

Ther e was water on my baby boys balls when he was born they were swollen so I screamed " His balls are huge" That is the first thing I said when he was born. It actually sounded like

Doctor... " Do not push right now"

Me... " I am pushing, the baby is coming"

Doctor... " It's a Boy"

Me.. " His balls are Huge"

When the nurse saw the top of my 2nd sons head  she told me he had brown hair, I just said "awwww crap" Don't get me wrong, I love him and he's gorgeous, but my first son was a redhead and i thought it would be neat to have another one. I'm happy either way.

My doctor had a doozy. As I was trying to push out one I'd my twins and he was trying to push my cervix to dilate me further I was screaming bloody murder. So he looked at me and said "okay let's try to push again, this time without all the screaming." I wasn't sure if I should laugh or punch him.

i just had a baby on easter. at 2 am, after 2 hours of pushing, i said, "hey doc, if you had to ball park it, how many more pushes do you think i have?" he laughed and said this was the last one because he was getting the forceps out...
