    Default Superficial - what did you wear to hospital when in labour?

    Third pair of trackie pants in 15 mins as my waters were soaking everything, and a singlet top.
    2.30am. Triage was empty
    Found out I was 10cm when I got there, then put on a nice purple striped cotton modern nightie

    My birth with DD was so quick that I had her in the clothes I was wearing that day (obviously had to take the bottom half off once I got to hospital). She was in my arms just 15 minutes after I got into the delivery suite, so yeah, no time to change!

    I was wearing black stretch pants and a black loose maternity top, it just happened to be what I was wearing, I'd have gone in whatever I was wearing and I wouldn't think anything of a woman in labour turning up in pjs, if that's what you are comfy in

    I was in pjs and the ugliest red bed socks. 5 years later and I've kept the socks as a souvenir. So ugly.

    I wore just whatever I was in, I can't remember the first time. I'd gone to hospital to visit my best friend, who'd had her baby that morning. While I was there, I mentioned that my braxton hicks had been pretty regular. They offered to have a look and it turned out I was in active labour lol!! So I didn't go home again, just stayed there and laboured. The second time, I was booked in for an induction and I reckon I would have worn yoga pants and a shirt probably.

    I had a homebirth but in early labour I wore a nighty which I took off once I jumped in the birth pool.

    First time - I went to hospital at about 4pm and I was wearing black knee length leggings with a casual sleeveless grey maternity dress and thongs. It was the middle of winter but I wasn't feeling the cold! It all came off pretty quickly and I just had a hospital gown as it was easy to pop on & off as I was in and out of the shower.

    Second time - induced, and strangely I think I was wearing the same outfit but with a cardigan when I arrived!

    I turned up in trackies and a singlet. Labored in loose shorts and a singlet until I hopped in the bath where I had just a crop top on. Then i got out of the bath and onto the bed and didnt bother putting anything on (8cm dialated). Somehow, by the time my daughter was put on my chest I no longer had my crop top on...dont remember taking it off but i had a lot going on at that time lol.

    I went into transition at 1230am. Got to hospital at 1am. I think i was in hubbys shirt, my pj pants and hubbys shoes đŸ˜‚ so my opinion PJs all the way. Last thing on my mind was getting dressed
