when i was in labour i got a really strong contraction and threw up with it.

i just had my baby on friday 12-16, and i also had a few very strong contractions, one of which made me throw up also because the pain was so bad.

I threw up also. Some got on the floor and then my boyfriend held up a trash can for me. It defeniately wasn't the worst moment of labor.

I threw up once while in labor and a friend of mine threw up several times. It's not such a big deal though, the nurses are used to it.

I threw up as well. About an hour before I had my daughter.

Hi girls, with my son I was pushing so hard I almost threw up the nurse told me to throw up on the towel next to me but I didn't it was very embarra__sing and I have a feeling I will probably throw up with this one Yuck..

One of my friends got very sick from the epidural and actually threw up so hard, she only had to push for a few mins- the contacting muscles in her tummy when she was vomiting did most of the work. I don't like getting sick, but she said it made her labor a lot easier!! :)

I did right before pushing and durning pushing. It might have been from the pain medication.

I HATE throwing up, too...and i was scared that i was going to. (i had my baby exactly 1 week ago). Sometimes the contractions and pushing are so intense and hard that you feel like you might have to throw up...but its not like a really 'sick' feeling. just a straining feeling in your stomach. but i never threw up so i was good! :) good luck!

i threw up with both my deliveries. it's not pleasant at all, just one of those yucky and embara__sing side effects that goes along with having a baby

Yes, I threw up while in labor with my first 2 boys. I was induced with this last one and told them to give me a bowl beforehand because I will probably throw up. I did.
