Being pregnant ain’t easy. First, there’s the whole having to deal with an uncontrollable bladder, mood swings, and insane weight gain for almost TEN months, and then, as if that weren’t enough, we have to push a baby human out of a not-baby-human-sized place! Talk about a freaking miracle. In honor of those brave women who have gone where no man has ever gone before, we asked readers to share their most embarrassing pregnancy moments. Remember: it’s easier to laugh when you know it’s not just you! (And it isn’t. You’ll see.)

They told me to smell it, but since I drank so much water, it didn't really smell. Then the nurse chuckled on the other end and told me it was just urine and to go back to bed."
