    Default What did you wear when you gave birth?

    I'd diligently gone out about bought a cheap nighty so i could bleed on it and throw it out.

    But I never ended up changing. I spent most of my labour dressed in a pretty white ankle length skirt and a tank top, bra and undies.

    At some point I must have taken my bra and skirt off, but I have no memory of when. My mum also braided my hair, like a proper french braid, to keep it out of my face and because it was becoming a matted mess - I had really long hair at the time - I also have no memory of her even touching my head, but I woke up the morning after and tried to fun my fingers through my hair and was like "hey, when did that happen...?"

    OH! and hows this for the biggest laugh of ALL time, I straightened my hair before i went into labour, with a straightening iron, because I can straighten my hair and it stays soft and shiney for a couple of days, so i was thinking I'll look all fresh and pretty in my first picture with baby.

    hahahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahaha

    45 hour laters.....

    I looked beautiful... well, everyone says I look beautiful... they also say Jasper looks beautiful, but in that first ever photo of him he looks like an old man, its a bit like "the curious case of benjamin button"

    Anyhoo, what did you wear?

    i was wearing boxers that said sexy man on them and also a green polo top which my mum threw away. also had some pretty damn comfy undies on that mum also threw away. thanks mum for throwing my comfy away now.

    before we jumped in the ambulance, i chucked a skirt on as i still had the umbilical cord attached to me and then chucked on another shirt as i wanted to look kinda decent at the hospy even though i did look like crap as hair hadnt been brushed, teeth werent brushed, hairy McClairy legs, umbilical cord still hanging and you could see it kinda. i looked weird.

    that first shower i had, bliss

    Track pants and a singlet. For some reason I kept putting my track pants back on after every internal. I'm weird. I took them off at some stage though, and my singlet too.
