    What kind of thing are you buying? I know that between 21-24 weeks is the best time to buy it as you will be roughly the same size you are now as you will be when you have given birth, but I have no clue what to buy especially as it will be winter.

    Any ideas?

    I never knew that - thanks for sharing. Just looking at my belly now doesn't look too daunting if I return to this size :) I have no idea what to get for coming home as it will be January and no doubt miserably cold.

    i didnt even think about a going home outfit. Baggy tracksuit buttoms, trainers (or slippers) and a big baggy comfy top. As long as the baby looks lovely i couldnt care less about me. I`ve never had a baby before but I cant imagine that looking lovely would be my priority. Uv just gone thru labour and prob are wrecked, comfort would def be more appealing to me lol :thumbup:

    I hadn't thought about this either! I think I just assumed jogging bottoms was the way forward... Lots of big baggy comfortable stuff, I think...

    I wore home skinny jeans and a black tshirt with Ophelia :rofl:

    I want something comfy, but I would like it to be nice as I will feel rough, but it would be nice to have something new to put on. I'm getting plenty of jogging bottoms to wear around the house when I get home. I don't mind looking like a scuffbag in my own house.

    I intend on getting straight into the car at hospital and out again at my house and with as few people as possible seeing me for the first day or two so something comfy! The baby will look lovely though so we can take loads of photos of her :)

    Think at that point I'll opt for a plastic black bin liner - but maybe that won't even fit!!!!!!!!

    Huge nightie, dressing gown and slippers? sounds like a winner for me

    well, with my DS i didnt have a choice as my stupid dimwit ofan ex husband forgot to bring clean clothes for me as i had wrecked the ones i had used at the hospital with blood and waters breaking. so i had to go home in my nightie, dressing gown and slippers. i felt very stupid. i suppose i should be greatful he at least remembered the car seat.

    This time, my OH is a thoughtful kind man, so if anything happened like the blood incident again, i know i could rely on him to bring me something to wear. He isnt a t**t like my ex husband.

    So as long as its clean, i would probably say my black combats and a top to match.

    It's going to be middle of winter when I'm coming home from hospital so what ever I choose to wear it is likely to be covered in jacket, scarf, beanie and gloves anyway!! lol,

    I've read somewhere to take care mats or an old towel for the car on the way home, because if you are bleeding heavily it will soak through pads quickly, on that basis I'll be in old comfy tracksuit bottoms (much like every other day of the week :rofl: ) I don't think I'll care what I look like as long as little one looks cute.

    Thanks for the replies girls. I think it's more to do with the fact that I have family and friends who will visit and think nothing of telling me how rough I look.

    I was thinkin of something like black combats and a loose breast feeding top with a jacket and some pumps. Basically stuff that won't crease in my hospital bag.
