i had 4 children and all the three pregnancies goes well..its the fourth one that i had some bad experience..i mean i nearly got side swipe by a car ..it happens when im in my 3rd month pregnant of my youngest daughter..i was standing in the pavement of the street together with my friends at school (in college..i was pregnant when i finished college)it was near the school and its a one way street..when suddenly i heared a sound of tires(screeching) then i glanced at where it came from..it came directly at me..i think its my instinct just to move my feet back just 2 steps backward to avoid to be hit..and it did do the tricked but i was sad that its my friend who was hit by the car instead of me since she was not able to badged and inch..maybe due to shock or whatever..and we found out that the driver was drunk on that time...anyway my friend still alive just a concussion on her head...what about you ??can you share any experiences or any extraordinary happenings during pregnancy..

These weren't extraordinary but the birth of both of my sons were comical if nothing else. Since I had both my boys 359 days apart at the same hospital I knew the L&D staff by name. While having my 11lb moose the labor nurse, Jean, was nothing but rude to me. You try pushing out a baby that size without screaming. She looks at me and says "you weren't screaming like this when you were making the baby" I was mid push, stopped, sat half way up and said "I most certainly was would you like to see the video?" Then after I had him and I mean like 15 minutes after, she told me if I didn't get out of bed and walk to the bathroom she was going to have to cath me. I told her if she came near me with another dang needle she would find it sticking out of her forehead. I had him at 11 at night and wasn't moved to my room until close to 1 AM. At 3:30 in the morning her and a bunch of people from the cafeteria come into my room to see the baby because she went on lunch after I got moved and told everyone about the huge baby that was just born and that they all just had to come and see him. I threw every single one of them out of my room. The very next year when I went in to have my second son the first question I asked was if she was working and when they told me she was I informed everyone who would listen to keep her as far away from my room as possible or she was going to get strangled by her own stethoscope. I never saw her again. Instead they give me this twit who I called on the call button to tell her I was having the baby. She comes in and pats me on the head and says Yes sweetie that is why you are here in the hospital you are here to have a baby (talking to me like I am a 4 year old. I ripped the blankets off of me grabber her stethoscope spread my legs and said NOW. She looks down and goes running out of the room to get the doctor. By the time she got back (2 minutes later) my son was laying on the bed.

Hello dear vanities. I have to agree with you that pregnant women need to pay great attention to their babies inside. Just two months ago, my sister-in-law got pregnant as she had wished after getting married for three years. She is now very cautious with the growing baby inside and lies in bed to have a good rest without going from place to place as it is not easy for her to get pregnant with a baby. She is having her special period of life and I hope that she will have a very smooth pregnancy till the baby is born. Thanks very much for your discussion, my dear friend.
