    Es un disfenismo, una expresion, algo ofensiva, para demostrar "asombro".

    In english a similar dysphemism would be "holy shit".


    I also understand that phrase as an insult, but I think you shouldn't use it against yourself because is a pejorative phrase. Instead you can use it against other people when they act as idiots and tell them:

    " La madre que te parió"

    Though it's not a completely strong insult, it express your discomfort

    Hope that helps!
