Most Embarrassing Pregnancy Moments

Mums-To-Be Reveal their Most Embarrassing Pregnancy Moments

How’d You Get That Black Eye?

Ok, here’s mine… I spewed so much when I was pregnant. People seeing me vomit or army roll out of a car on all fours was the norm. However this time I was running to the toilet and heaved before I had time to lift the toilet seat right back and I hit my eye! I made up a story at work the next day on how it happened because we hadn’t announced it yet!



Bathtime With Extras

“I decided to have a relaxing bath after a hard day’s work being on my feet all day. I get in, and about 5 minutes I feel the need to spew! I call out to my husband for a bucket. It was too late. Here I am, laying in a bath full of vomit.”

Hey, Neighbor!

“My husband and I were out for a walk one evening and something he said got me laughing so hard that I peed myself. And it wasn’t just a few drops; I continued to pee myself for a solid 30 to 40 seconds. My yoga pants were (thankfully) black and covered in pee but I couldn’t stop laughing because at that point he was laughing at me! Of course, we were almost back home when our neighbours we had never met were outside and wanted to talk about our baby and me being pregnant. Thank goodness I drink so much water that my pee is almost clear and doesn’t really have much of an odour. I was quite uncomfortable though standing there having a conversation while discretely covered in pee.”


The Trifecta

“I was maybe 7 weeks pregnant and hadn’t really had morning sickness too badly at this point. One day, I was at the dog park enjoying the fresh air when I suddenly have the urge to barf. I’m in the middle of this field with maybe six other people, and I just bent over and start throwing up everywhere. As I’m throwing up, I start to pee my pants. Like, full-on pee. In my light-grey joggers. No pantyliner, nothing to help my situation and I’m a good 10-minute walk back to my car. People are noticing, but totally avoiding me. My dog is sniffing around like my vomit might be his dinner. I wanted to give up and just lay on the ground. I compose myself as best I could and start walking back to my car when this nice lady comes over and gives me her sweater to tie around my waist! I was mortified, but she insisted. She gave me her business card and said she had two kids and knows morning sickness when she sees it, and to just wash the sweater and return it to her. So then, of course, I started crying.”

    It's Jess, your go-to newborn photographer, and today let's chat about one of those adorable quirks that often steal the spotlight during our newborn sessions – hiccups!


    Ever wondered why those tiny, hiccupping symphonies happen? Well, fear not; I've got the inside scoop for you!

    1. Baby's Superpower: Developing Diaphragm

    Newborns are like little superheroes in training, and their hiccups are a sign that their diaphragm, the muscle responsible for breathing, is flexing and getting stronger. It's like their own mini gym session, preparing them for those hearty belly laughs and future superhero feats.



    2. Gastrointestinal Adventure

    Sometimes, those cute hiccups are just a part of your baby's digestive journey. Their tiny tummies are navigating the ins and outs of processing milk, and hiccups can be a natural outcome of this gastrointestinal adventure.



    3. The Learning Curve

    Just like we stumble while learning to walk, newborns might hiccup as they figure out the whole breathing-and-swallowing coordination dance. It's all part of the learning curve, and trust me, they'll be mastering it like pros in no time!



    4. The Calming Effect

    Believe it or not, hiccups can actually have a calming effect on your little one. It's like a rhythmic lullaby, creating a soothing pattern that might even help them drift off to sleep. Ah, the magic of baby hiccups!

    So, the next time your precious bundle of joy breaks into a hiccuping melody during our photoshoot, know that it's just another note in the beautiful symphony of babyhood. 🎶



    Common Questions about hiccups:


    How do I stop my baby's hiccups?

    To ease your baby's hiccups, try gentle burping, offering a pacifier, or letting them suck on a small feed. Patience is key; hiccups often resolve on their own.


    Do hiccups mean the baby is OK?

    Yes, hiccups are usually harmless and common in newborns. They often signify a developing nervous system and are not typically a cause for concern.


    Why does my baby hiccup for no reason?

    Newborns hiccup frequently, and sometimes seemingly without cause. It's a normal part of their development, linked to the maturation of the diaphragm and respiratory system.


    What is the purpose of hiccups in infants?

    Hiccups in infants serve a developmental purpose, helping to strengthen the diaphragm and respiratory muscles. While their exact function isn't fully understood, they're considered a natural part of a baby's growth.


    Should you sit the baby up with hiccups?

    While it's not necessary, you can try holding your baby upright or allowing them to suck on a pacifier. However, most hiccups will resolve on their own without intervention.


    How long should newborn hiccups last?

    Newborn hiccups are typically short-lived and can last anywhere from a few minutes to around 20 minutes. If they persist for longer periods, it's always a good idea to consult with your pediatrician.


    And hey, if you're curious about capturing these delightful moments (hiccups included) in a frame, I've got you covered!
