I wore hospital gowns for my first two. Then with my third, I did the majority of my labor outside of the hospital. I was shopping most of the day, and had on a cotton dress and leggings. By the time I got to the hospital, I was stripped down to nothing. I couldn't stand anything touching me. With my fourth, I wore yoga pants, a sleep nursing bra, and when I was around people, I threw on a robe.

My last two had long a long drawn out beginning phase of labor with contractions ten minutes apart, but the active, fast moving part (initiated by my water breaking) only lasted about an hour for each. I get super primal for that last hour.
