This doesn't paint a pretty picture, but you might throw up while in labor. This is normal and indicates that your body is making room for the baby and can occur if you were eating during the beginning of your labor.

Gross, right? When your baby poops inside you it is considered your infant's first bowel movement. Usually it isn't an issue in the delivery room if this occurs, but it can pose as a risk if your baby inhales it into his or her system before doctors clean them up.

If you don't push and breathe the right way during your delivery, you can end up with black eyes and bruises on your face. Blood vessels can pop due to all the pushing during labor,  which may cause the bruising. It can be easily treated by applying ice packs to the area and should be gone after a few days.
