I love how the lists in pregnancy magazines never mentioned the differences for packing for a c-section! Our first was an emergency c-section, and a shock, so of course I had next to nothing that I could wear besides pjs with elastic waist and I walked out of their in my DH's tracksuit pants, because they were larger, high waisted and elastic.
Changes I made for subsequent deliveries (even though they were VBACs) was yoga pants as others have mentioned, lose undies, container with metamucil (it's good if you have to have several stitches for a natural also).
I also wore hippy, elastic waisted skirts. I remember being in tears trying to go to the loo the next day, but DH was there and gave me tips - hilarious - but it worked. The hospital never warned it was going to happen and didn't give anything to help it.
If you pack these things and prepare before hand, you should be fine. All the best!

Sounds good! I'd also get a dry shampoo. I found it sooooo painful to try and wash my hair because lifting your arms pulls eeeeeverything and it's something I wish I'd had.

I took my own water bottles, I like cold water so we just filled bottles and put them in the fridge in our room, sounds silly but it helps me drink more water when it's cold & you need to drink heaps at the start... Saves waiting for your jug to be filled up all the time. Also a straw to drink from aswell, makes it easy to drink while BFing!

Take a hair dryer as its good to dry your wound with.
I took my own pillow as I find other pillows just aren't right. I also found I had to still have a pillow under my leg when laying on the side. I found the first night I mainly slept more on my back than my usual side so pillows helped a lot.
I got hungry so I wish I took more snacks.
Chargers for all electronics.
Jumper that zips up. I found I got really cold at night time. The AC seemed to go up :-/
Oh I would take a nice big towel. The hospital ones I had were more like big size bath mats. Totally sucked!!
