    Does anyone else feel like buying themselves a whole new going home outfit, so they look/feel good when leaving hospital?
    I've spent ages this weekend looking longingly at new jeans, boots, tops, jackets and even socks. Am I the only one?

    I was thinkin of buying clothes in my regular size or a size up depending, but I haven't bought much mat stuff (1 top, 2 dresses for parties, 3 pairs of trousers and a pair of jeans) as I'm lucky and can still get into some prepregnancy stuff.

    I took stuff to the hosp last time and ended up going home in my maternity combats and a loose top as I hadn't got the figure I expected to have after giving birth lol. I am taking loose clothes this time too and going shopping after I have lost my baby weight this time.

    I think that you are going to struggle with this once hun as you are recommended to buy your going home outfit when you are around 5 months pregnant as this is most likely the size you will be when you leave hospital.

    I'll probably end up in hubby's clothes I seem to be wearing them a lot. At 5 months I didn't have a bit if a bump so maybe my plan for same size will work. I just want to look back and think how fantastic I looked, vain I know.

    God, I sound like I'm a 6ft model. I'm not normally this egotistical.

    I went straight back to my pre pregnancy size after i had my 2 girls. but to be honest clothes and stuff were the last thing on my mind, and plus the thought of putting on jeans after i had given birth was awful as i was so sore downstairs, i just wanted to be left in my pjs! but i opted for tracksuit bottoms going home! somehow i think i will be doing the same this time! There is no point looking gorgeous in jeans and boots when your walking like John Wayne!! lol :haha:

    :haha: third time lucky :haha:

    Yep I felt like this the first time - I was even putting my makeup on (curling my eyelashes) in labour with my first (after the epidural obviousley :haha:)
    My best friend and OH were like - Seriousley is this really neccessery!!

    Second time, I wanted to be carried out in my pjamas, didnt care what I looked like - In fact I look back at pictures and cringe so I will be making more of an effor this time :blush: but probably stick to some tracksuit bottoms or something comfortable...(In primark not sure if they still do them but in the pjama section they did nice jama/tracksuit set things..:blush:) they are good to have i bought a couple of them after ds2 so I could lounge around in comfy stuff but still look decent for when visitors come round xx

    I don't care too much either, will have some comfy trousers and a cozy jumper, most likely :) As long as everything else goes well, clothes is the last thing on my mind :):)

    Same here... somehow doubt that ANYONE will be looking at me...

    It will be Winter, anyway, so whatever I wear will be under my 3/4 length (very nice, angora and wool) coat. I may wear maternity jeans and a top or I may wear a pair of PJs... I will ensure that my hair looks nice and my face is ok (but I am not a huge make-up person anyway).

    Like others have said, I have NO idea of what my figure will be like (and actually try not to think about it - I doubt it will snap straight back to my lean, toned, sporty body... I will try not to think TOO much about my body until I can get back into the gym/pool again - about 6 weeks after birth). Comfort will be the prime concern.

    I too look forward to normal clothes, but will enjoy shopping a lot more when I feel back to my old self... :thumbup:

    ive just packed my lazy day black trousers (2 pair) and a vest top and
    another top with buttons. Far from fethcing but doubt ill feel as though im ready to walk a red carpet lol, as long as ive got my make up and a big pair of sunglasses to hide behind and a nice inflatable ring to sit on in the car, ive talked myself into the fact that, that's all im bothered about lol

    I bought a £3 pair of asda trackie bottoms, as much as I'd like a new outfit its not as if anyone so going to see me and I have no idea what I'll fit into or be comfortable in.
    I've popped a loose comfy primark top in as well that never was maternity but has seen me through - it does unbutton down the front too.
