Wedding days are stressful as it is, but nothing beats this one! A Long Island couple, Joseph DeMichele and Feliece Terwilliger were one their way to tie the knot in the village of Lake Grove in their SUV when they crashed into a car U-turning in front of them.
Luckily no one was hurt, including their two kids who were also in the car. However, the accident happened at 1:15 pm, 15 minutes before the wedding was expected to take place. “It really was one of those things that you were anticipating for so long that you were just wanting so badly for the chance to get married,” says DeMichele. “All I wanted to do was marry my best friend.”
Set the scene – cops, firefighters, and two hysterical children – the wedding was looking less and less likely to go ahead. They were starting to give up hope. They told police where they were going, and a sergeant didn’t hesitate, “Suddenly, he turns around and he’s like, ‘You know what we’re going to do?'” says Terwilliger, “‘We’re going to get you to your wedding.'”
Officer Cody Matthews who responded to the minor crash was soon going to become the almost-newlyweds’ “Best Man,” as he offered to drive the family to their wedding. Sirens blaring, he whizzed them right up to the town hall where the mayor was awaiting them.
However, the couple then encountered one other bump in the road. One of their witnesses was absent. DeMichele and Terwilliger did not even hesitate and “showed their appreciation by inviting Officer Matthews to be an official witness to their marriage and to sign their marriage certificate.”
There was an even more crazy part to this whole day. The wedding was meant to be a surprise to the couple’s family in Brooklyn, but they ended up seeing the whole story on the news! We wonder whether Mathews will be joining them on their honeymoon too!
Fart and Gas
A mother shared her funny childbirth story and it’s hilarious. As a custom, doctors encourage women in labor to keep pushing hard and hard till the baby comes out. Even when there is an objection that what is being felt is different, the urge to keep pushing is always resounded.
In this case, the woman told the doctor she has gas, but it was brushed off as pressure from the baby. They soon knew who was right when she farted loudly and it sounded extremely loud.
This is a rather unique and usual experience of a mother who kept passing out during the process of childbirth. To relieve pain, she was given several medications and it had repercussions later. She kept passing out and at one point shouted something weird before falling back to sleep.
Relating her experience, she says, “I jerked awake and said, ‘Hugh Jackman naked! I was going to see a movie where my husband is naked in the first scene and I was late, so I thought I missed it!'” What movie? It must be a dream.
The Harry Potter Mother
For a mother who watched every Harry Potter movie and read the books, it basically became her version of the Lord’s Prayer. She had the Harry Potter dialogue memorized. So, every time she had a contraction, she recited the dialogue– weird.
For whatever reason, she believed reciting it made her feel better. According to her, it happened during the pregnancy of her first child and she couldn’t quite pinpoint why that was what she chose to do when the contraction began. She didn’t quite say if she did the same with her second child.
School Bus Experience
This is rather embarrassing than funny. Recounting her childbirth experience, a woman who found herself heading to the hospital behind a school bus (funny what emergency can make you do) was about to give birth. She remembers how she was screaming in pain so loudly only to look up to the shock of her life.
She was so embarrassed after screaming the entire time to see lots of terrified kids in the school bus looking at her. They were staring, ignorant of what was happening, but scared. It must have been truly embarrassing.
“If you’ve never been there, you can’t know what it feels like.” This is especially true for childbirth pain. Women do a lot during labor that many may consider as exaggeration or a conscious effort to make people believe they are going through a lot.
A particular mother who shared her story claims she kept shouting the name Joe which isn’t that of her husband or anyone she knows. So where did the name come from? Well just a random way to cope with the pain. She further says, “thankfully, my husband has a sense of humor.”
Lots of Hair
Thankfully she didn’t show her rage, or else it would have been embarrassing when what the doctor said became clear. They came in to check the cervix of this woman and she was infuriated when the doctor said “she’s got lots of hair.”
She took it to mean the doctor was complaining about her private. Only later did she realize the doctor was referring to the head of her baby and not what she assumed. She sure did feel somewhat bad. But it would have been embarrassing if she showed her anger when the doctor said it.
Yelling at the Obstetrician
During the birth, a woman pushing screamed at someone who strolled in. According to her, “she was pushing when some old guy in shorts and a cardigan walked into the birthing suite.”
Not knowing who he was, she yelled, “Get the [blank] out, old man!” It was the midwife who then informed her that he was actually the obstetrician. Oh No! Too bad she yelled at him already. She must have felt embarrassed but what can she do? It’s too late.
High on Medication
A mother shared her first baby experience. She was given a medication that made her feel quite high.
During birthing, she related what happened, saying, “I whispered to my husband, ‘I don’t like the drugs, but the drugs like me.'” Obviously not her usual herself but her comment is quite hilarious.
Walk of Shame
It’s difficult to choose; if the family should have told her or not. The incident that happened to a certain individual during childbirth is shameful and not in any way amusing, at least to the victim. The problem started when she was given Demerol and what happened was shocking.
She said the following: “I found out from my brother-in-law a few months later that I had apparently taken a walk down the hall of the hospital butt naked! I had no memory of it, but the rest of my family definitely did!” It’s an utterly embarrassing experience that she won’t forget in years.
Cop and Childbirth
A couple of infuriated neighbors called the cops who came knocking during a home birth. The couple who lived on the 3rd floor has been making lots of noises after midnight. The neighbors reported the loud noise to the cops who came to the door knocking to check out the source of the noise.
From the outside, it felt like a nuisance but from within a different story. The baby had just started crowning when there was a knock at on door. To the shock of the couples, it was a COP! He left, mortified.
Borrow From the Nursery
So, here’s another embarrassing childbirth story that shows how intense pain can affect mothers. During labor, a woman felt she couldn’t take the pain. Then told her husband she wanted to go home.
He asked, “What about the baby?” and she said, “we could just borrow one from the nursery.” Borrow! A child? Not just the husband was shocked. The midwives watched her like a hawk after the comment. It must have been quite an embarrassing moment for her.
The effect of Demerol during labor is unknown to many women until it’s settled into the body system and starts its impact during labor. Like most women who lost a bit of consciousness, one mother shared her experience when Demerol made her hallucinate.
She says, “I grabbed my husband’s arm after a contraction and told him, ‘We have to leave this planet. It’s gone barren.'” Where did that come from? Guess she’s as bewildered as the husband and midwives when that comment slipped out.
Oh-Oh! Not What She Meant
The pain of labor varies, while some have it minimal and bearable, but it’s tougher than one can imagine of many women.
After hours of labor with intense and crippling pain, a certain mother screamed at the medical team to euthanize her. Euthanasia?! She must have shocked everyone in attendance. Later, after the session, she must have felt so bad asking for such a thing.
Disorienting Birthing Pain
On a cool day, years after babies have grown, mothers alongside family members present at labor would have funny and embarrassing experiences to share. Mothers make absurd statements and mostly do not remember until someone present during labor mentions it.
Here is a funny experience of a woman after receiving my epidural. She puts her hand on her thigh, gasped, and asked my mother, ‘Is that you? You’ve got to tell me what lotion you use!’ The mother almost peed herself laughing.
She’s Been There Too!
During a long labor, a woman had her husband next to her. After a while, her mom came to replace the husband on her side so he could take a break.
During a particularly bad contraction, she relates her funny and awkward experience; “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!'” If she was fully conscious she needed to reach to cover her mouth after saying that. It’s her mother and she’s been there, definitely knows what it feels like.
The Unusual Labor
Unlike the vast majority of women who experience pain, some have unusual childbirth. The general notion of child labor is of a woman in anguish trying to push a new life through. But as in the case of Makclair, it was a painless experience.
“At 10 centimeters the nurse told me to call her if I felt a ton of pain. But I was fine, just chilling out, texting people and talking to my sister on the phone,” she said. With nothing special done, she wanted a refund for the services she had paid for.
“Waste” of Time
Throughout her long hours of labor, she kept needing “to go.” Her husband never knew so much waste can be stored in her. Recounting the experience, her words show her husband still loves her despite the embarrassment of non-stop action.
She says, “I thought I would set a world record for the most quantity pooped during labor! I knew it was going to happen because I kept telling nurses but I had to go use the toilet.”
The Cow Sound
During her contraction, a now mother screamed “Mmmmmm” then as the pain intensified, her tune changed. It went from the “Mmmmm” to MmmmMooo;” she was sounding like a cow.
“As the contraction got more intense, it became, ‘MmmmMOOO.’ I literally mooed. Like a cow,” she said. How embarrassed she must have felt recounting the experience and imagining what the health professionals must have thought of her.
Practice Down the Drain
Alysia had stage fright (if that’s applicable in her situation). She had planned for her birthing date; learning Yoga moves and mantras to help her stay calm and composed. Perhaps she would have put them to use in a normal situation.
However, trying not to give birth to your child in a car is very much an unplanned incident.
Childbirth takes various forms for different people. It’s more worrisome to experience pain and complications at the same time. A mother gave birth, but the baby had to get some blood drawn. Her sister and mother were present.
As the blood drawing process started, her mother looked away but not her sister. Next, she fainted and nearly smashed her head on a radiator! Half of the nurses who were attending to the baby rushed to her side to make sure she didn’t break her head!
The Calm Husband
Some embarrassing part of this story is not to be as embarrassing as one would have imagined. Due to the lengthy difference between her contractions, she was sent back home to come when it becomes closer.
Perhaps her gut was right after all, not quite long and while still having contractions about 8 minutes apart, her baby came knocking. With the help of a 911 operator, the husband was guided to a successful delivery before the paramedics arrived. The 911 operators called back to check on them and offered to give them a copy of the 911 recording.
The Obstetrician Experience
It’s no news mothers fart during labor. It’s embarrassing but many are not conscious of this since they are on medications. However, in the case of this mother, she farted while her obstetrician was sewing her up.
If the OB was given a chance to tell this horrific experience, she’ll most likely express her utter disgust or maybe not. The 32 years old mother was deeply embarrassed and will never hope to meet with the OB again.
She Had to Go!
A mother in her early 20s had a somewhat awkward experience during labor. She relates, “after many hours of labor and days of hard contractions (and no bowel movements).”
“My midwife told me it was time to start pushing and I said, ‘But I have to poop.’ She kept telling me the baby was coming, and I continued to say it. When I started pushing, I yelled out super loudly, ‘but i have to I have to pooooooop!!!’ in a really long, strained sentence. I know everyone heard me; it was so embarrassing.”
Oh, Morphine! Why?
Being in a delirious state due to morphine, a 27-year-old mother was wheeled out of the C-section after a successful delivery. As she was wheeled out, her husband’s fraternity brothers were present.
In her unconscious, she exposed her bare chest in an attempt to feed the baby. Her husband quickly suggested they all get a snack at the cafeteria while she finished feeding their son. She must have felt really embarrassed hearing this later.
She Lost It!
At 32, who would have thought a grown woman would start to sob for no reason? After an epidural, while birthing her second child, she randomly started sobbing for no reason and was so out of control the nurse had to run the mental capabilities test on.
“‘What is your name? What is today? Are you aware of what is happening?’ All while snot was running down my face,” she said. She felt bad about hearing this after the childbirth process. Many lose consciousness after epidural but hers was particularly weird and worrying.
Wow, the following story could have gone horribly wrong under a different set of circumstances. When blood ever starts flying around in a hospital and it’s not yours, and you end up in contact with it, one is bound to get worry as to what this might mean.
Thankfully, this woman who was experiencing childbirth didn’t end up with any terrible repercussions.
Mother in Law Doesn’t Come in Just Yet!
More often than not, wives want to always appear flawless to mothers-in-law. It’s no crime, except a particular wife felt she lost her high regard.
During her childbirth, with her legs still in stirrups and her bloody, broken private on display, her mother-in-law was broken into the suite and to take a look at the newborn. Her excitement prompted the entry but Sylvie felt open and ashamed of she was seen in such a state.
Common New Neighbors
Here’s an especially embarrassing experience of a pregnant woman and her new neighbors. Her first childbirth was a home birth due to how fast things escalated. The midwife had to come home, and the main door swung open, her noise welcomed her.
Not just her but the new neighbors checking out the apartment opposite definitely heard the scream. Certainly not a good way to meet for the first time. Although she did not comment further, it would be difficult for her to interact confidently with the neighbors afterward.
Water Bath and Waste
Rose decided to choose water birth but was concerned about messing up the water with her waste. The midwife simply brushed off the idea of messing up the water saying there even more important things to focus on.
Midway through childbirth, the midwife discreetly fetched a goldfish net and started to scoop off some floating objects. It was at that moment she realized what had happened. “I cried,” she said. She was ashamed to admit it but what she dreaded had happened.
Her friends tease her for never being nude. As a super modest individual, she refused to be naked during my home birth. At a point when her contractions stalled, and they needed to get the baby out quickly, her husband came over and did nipple stimulation to try to coax a contraction out of her.
“Apparently, I’m so modest that my body decided, ‘Hell no! That’s not happening in front of all these people,’ and my baby came out in a huge push moments later. Thank goodness!” She says.
The Dolphins Love You
In a weak and disorientated state, which was caused by the effect of medication that kicked in after childbirth, a mother said funny things.
The drugs started to affect her when they were sewing her due to tearing. Then she said loudly, “I can see dolphins, can you see them?” Then she looked at the newborn and said, “the dolphins love you, baby.”
Push Her Back in
Every mother yearns for the birth of her lovely new one and would give anything to make that happen. Labor pain is often easy to bear when thinking about it mentally.
A mother could conclude that she’ll bear any pain to have a piece of her brought to life. Well, easy to say until reality sets in for many. A mother who shared her story claimed she screamed, ‘push her back in! Because it felt like her baby was coming out of the butt!’ It shows how weird pain during labor can make some wish for the opposite of what they want.
Daddy Passed Out on Seeing His Son
A mom spent a full day in labor trying to birth her son. After a series of trials, they switched to C-section. As the young boy was revealed, the husband moved closer to take a look but collapsed immediately due to shock.
The boy looked roughened due to the several hours of trial. Later it was discovered that the husband had spent so much energy and time taking care of the wife and forgot to hydrate. The combination of the shock and dehydrated/low blood sugar led to the incident. Daddy needs care too after all.
Many pregnant women at the childbirth stage complain of pains, weird feelings, and not being able to stay focused. A mother talked about her embarrassing moment which is quite different but still as gross.
The medications she took made her throw up. And she didn’t throw up just anywhere but in the face of one of the nurses. Gross! The nurse had to be replaced. She felt guilty and ashamed when her husband told her what happened.
Howling Like a Coyote
Ever heard a coyote howl? Man! It’s got a unique and loud sound. If women were to start a reality show of how loud they screamed during labor, the various types of sounds would most certainly be hilarious.
A mother here howled like a coyote! Now that’s something. Usually, the strange screams are so loud that a decibel sound meter would likely find no category for it. Funny but true childbirth stories.
