Crazy Entrance to the World

One of my bestest friends had her third baby last week. Her first two came quickly - but this one set a land/speed record. She actually had the baby in the waiting room of the hospital.....WHILE SHE WAS STILL WEARING HER PANTS!!!! I know..isn't that crazy? They were checking her into the hospital and she was telling them that she was pushing. The hospital staff were making her husband sign some forms, until he looked over and could see the baby in the leg of my friends sweat pants. So insane! Both she and the baby are fine now.

Now, believe it or not, this may not be the weirdest birth story amongst my friends. Another one was it the hospital, after having been induced and needed to go to the bathroom. When she goes to sit on the toilet, the baby comes out, and my friend passes out from the shock. Luckily a nurse heard her hit the floor and came in and got the baby and my friend - both of whom were fine.

My births were all vanilla. I was induced with my first (i had excess amniotic fluid that was scaring the doctors, but meant nothing), then had a c-section (failure to progress); I had a scheduled c-section with my second, and a c-section with my third (I went into labor the day before my scheduled c). Anyone else have a fun delivery to share?

OMG, that is crazy and yet kind of amazing. In her sweatpants! I was induced both times - nothing interesting about that.
