I wore a pair of yoga pants and a tank top. The pants came off when I got in the birth pool. I thought I was going to want to be naked so the plan was to wear a bikini top. I didn't want to be entirely naked because I had a photographer there and wanted to be able to show off my pics. I ended up not caring or noticing what I had on and wore the tank top the entire time.

I bought a sleep shirt thing and footed slippers to wear while laboring. Once I got in the tub though I was naked and I never put anything back on afterwards. I know they threw and robe on me when I moved from the tub to the bed but it was pointless lol. I would like to keep a sports bra on next time just for pictures sake. I had to crop my boobs out of a lot of them.

very little that's for sure! probably start off in a light, comfy skirt and a bandeau or small tube top, but knowing me, I'll probably just rip everything off at one point.

I was looking on etsy for hospital delivery gowns to buy for a friend's shower and found this under "Mom to Be." I'm not into camo at all, but kind of love the difference between the model and the title.

My SIL wore a night gown that she just bought at Walmart and loved it. I am planning on getting a gown too, the hospital ones never seem to fit!

These are cute and simple. I might just go with something like this for laboring, then when it's time to birth the baby I'll just strip down to a sports bra.

I was just wearing a pair of maternity pants and a large, baggy shirt of DH's. When it came to pushing, I just stripped off naked. Seemed like a good idea at the time, lol!

Probably just a sports nursing bra in the tub. I have huge boobs and I'm just not comfortable with them hanging everywhere. I even sleep in a sports bra. last time I planned to wear a nightgown similar to the above but I ended up wearing my tank top and underwear until I got in the tub.

Nothing - I prefer laboring in the nude too. I'll have hubby put blankets on the windows if necessary....

I wore yoga pants and a sports bra until I got in the tub, then I just wore a sports bra the rest of my labor.
