    As a labor and delivery nurse, I can say this is pretty accurate, although with some patients it usually its usually more like, “I think I need to boo boo.”

      1. Goddess of Thunder says:

        Yeah, what woman in labor uses words like, “boo-boo”??? And what is that even supposed to mean? Poop? Pee? Scrape my elbow and cry to my mom? Labor is usually not the time for indirect niceties….
        I was all like, “I’m pushing NOW, either make yourself useful or get the f*** outta my way!”

        1. Ashley says:

          There is a certain “ethnic” group of people who use the term “boo boo” for poop… But yes, most women feel like they need to poop when it’s time to push. And usually it’s already happened (but we don’t tell them that).

    1. Autumn says:

      I think I just wailed “I want to go hooooome,” in varying levels of hysteria the entire time. My husband thought it was hilarious, I’ll have to let him know I’m not the only one.

  2. Lance says:

    I really thought it was a list to know how to tell if a woman is going to fart. I’m glad they included, “I think the baby’s coming” or I would have been embarrassed.

    so does stating “i think the money’s coming” indicate impending wealth? i’d even grunt and sit on one buttock if it would help…
