This is about the sloppy messiness of early labor and the way to the hospital. The ride to the hospital for me will be just over 1 hour long, and it will be February/March (Canadian Winter so.. snowy, icy and cold) when the time comes. Our car is sort of an asset that we want to keep clean in case of resale, etc, it has always been well taken care of and I was wondering what sort of things can we do/pack to prepare for an extra 'messy' journey to the hospital? (TMI perhaps but in case of breaking waters, blood, urine, etc) The car has cloth interior if that helps any. Also, how about for yourselves? I plan on of course bringing an extra package of really cheap underwear, but all I can picture is getting to the hospital soaking wet from the waist down, messy, grumpy, and not to mention verrry cold from the walk from the car to the doors! Did you toss an old extra blanket in the car to cover yourself (And your wet, messy clothing) as you went in to the hospital, to wrap around your waist or anything? I know that I am worried about this now, and may not be concerned with being embarrassed about being messy later, but I think just in case I do become self conscious I should be ready! (((I should mention... Already just because it is winter we carry a large bag of extra blankets/coats/gloves etc in the backseat of the car,but I would rather pack separately from the current bag and have the current bag as extra back up incase of a car breakdown etc.))) So, any suggestions for keeping the car clean/covering the seats, etc? And any suggestions on what to bring for yourself as well? And.. am I the only one worried about this??? Lol!!
