I'm planning on laboring in the tub, maybe even birthing in the tub and will probably wear a sports bra or bathing suit top. I'm not really the type to have myself just hanging out there. But, we'll see when the time comes. If I feel constricted, I'll totally strip right down.
First one I had hospital gown, second one I ended up naked cuz I used the birth tub and didn't think to bring a bathing suit top in my rush...this time I'll bring a top to wear in the water if I remember...
ahhh hospital gowns i hate them they always seem to strangle me round my neck and feel to uncomfortable during delivery i will wear just a bikini top i like to have baby on my chest straight away to try and breast feed.
I wore a regular hospital gown during labor and after i had a shower and we gave riley his 1st bath they gave me this hideous pink gown, more like a granny night gown that had lace on the collar and sleeves and openings in the chest to nurse so it was obviously a maternity gown but it was hideous! i changed out of it within a few hours to my own pajama pants and a shelf-bra tank so i could nurse.
I'm kind of thinking i want to buy or make my own hospital gown for after delivery, i have no problem using the regular gowns for labor but i do not want a hideous gown again. I avoided pics and was just uncomfortable when family visited because i felt frumpy. The last thing you want to feel after you have pushed out a baby I will definitely take my own pjs again to change into because it made it a lot more comfortable to walk around the wing after Riley was born to get exercise.

I thought about making my own hospital gown but I think, with having to have a c-section, they wouldn't let me wear it at least in the OR for sanitary reasons. Maybe I can make one to change into afterwards... we'll see, it'll be some sort of gown.
