I'll bet you OB nurses have heard 'em all! Let's share!
A couple of mine:
While helping his fairly fresh postpartum wife in the shower, she passed a huge clot. He comes out of the bathroom all wound up and in a dither, shouting for help, "SHE LOST HER LIVER!!"
Full term primip comes in with c/o "naval pain". Says it helped to rub it, but was concerned that this might tangle the babes umbilical cord...:roll
Gotta love 'em!

[B]How bout the ceremonial"passing of the mucus plug"????
oh yes, how could i possibly forget the "lost mucous plug". I love
it when they call first and tell me that they have lost their mucous
plug! I always tell them, well there really is no such thing as a
mucous plug-sure you may have more mucousy discharge, but
it is not plugging anything!!! But what I really want to say when
they tell me that they have lost their mucous plug I want to either
ask them "oh no, where was that last place you saw it!", or
"oh no, how long ago was it? Has the baby fallen out yet? Because you know that the only thing holding the baby in is that
big glob of snot!!!"
