Ohhh I was so fancy... I bought a delivery gown and a lovely robe because it was going to be all rainbows and unicorns, right? My labor was so hectic I wore a hospital gown, I then permanently stained the gown with nipple cream and robe with blood so there went that.... I did have a pair of lovely fuzzy socks that smelled of lavender (my feet get cold all the time). The socks were real hit with nurses and at least one part of me was super comfy 😂😂😂

I have no recollection of what I wore! I remember wearing a night dress to start with and when things got under wear....I honestly couldn't tell you. By the time I had my DD (after three days!), I think I'd given up caring what I had on. I could have been laying on the bed on my own birthday suit for all I know!

Honestly I just go with the hospital gown, hospital socks, underwear that are comfy, and a robe from home. The robe helps me feel like I'm a little more modestly and comfortable covered until it's truly go time, plus hospitals are always freezing so it's nice to have the extra layer.

Just an updated reply from me to say I had every intention of giving birth in a cute giraffe night dress that I'd selected and still ended up just in my vest top I already had on and nothing on my bottom half
I didn't get chance to think about what I was wearing lol.

ETA: can't even find my original answer now. I was sure I'd replied to this thread ha! Sorry.

First labour I wore one of hubby's polos because it was knee length for me. But it was a silky kind of fabric so it made me uncomfortably hot.

Second labour I wore a hospital gown. Never again. It made moving around to get comfortable harder than it needed to be.

Last labour I wore my dress until I got uncomfortable. Just left on my sports bra and the midwife put a cotton sheet over me. Plan to do the same this time around but because I will probably just be naked. I want to feed this baby at birth - something I didn't do with my last baby due to GD and the midwife felt formula in the first hour would be our best option so we could control his sugar levels and know how much went into him.

I spent most of my labor in the tub, and wore just a sports bra. I took it off when I got out of the water and delivered naked. I wore a loose fitting nightgown once family came to visit, one with loose straps I could easily slide down for nursing. I ended up wearing that nightgown home too, but we left 8 hours after he was born and I gave zero cares what I looked like at that point haha.
