I've just been reading through some old threads about what to wear in labour and it's got me thinking... Initially we were planning a home water birth so i didn't have much to consider but now i'll be giving birth in hospital and also may not be able to use the pool So i have decided to buy a slightly baggy strappy nightie to wear during labour, and that's fine, it drops down for feeding/skin to skin and if i get hot i'll just whip it off and go nude! I'm sure i won't be bothered by that point But i am now thinking about AFTER the birth and what to wear while i am still in the hospital. I am a pj kinda girl normally rather than nighties but i know midwives prefer nighties in case of heavy bleeding etc and also i know if i end up having a c section i'm not going to want pj bottoms sitting on my scar But should i buy nighties one size up, like my labour nightie, so they're baggy? I'm not expecting to lose all the weight instantly but i assume once baby is out your belly does deflate somewhat???? So should i buy my regular size instead? Argh! This is all SO confusing! Any advice greatly appreciated!
