Yup I bought a short sundress from Old Navy for 5 bucks. It had straps, but I cut a slit down the front and added a tie so it was easy to undo when babe was born. Also it was $5 so I didn't care when it was covered in gunk and I let the nurses just cut it off of me once the baby was out. I was too tired to deal with it.

My first birth I wore the hospital gown and HATEd it!! I felt like a fat cow and it was uncomfortable. So for my second birth I wore a tank top and a stretchy knit jersey knee length skirt. So much better!!

Re: S/O What do you wear in labor?

I wore the gown with my first "don't question anything" birth. With my second, I was getting twisted up in it and my midwife finally asked, "Do you want to take it off?" I realize yes, I did! But I would have never done that on my own. With my third, I knew I would reach a point where it would come off, and it did . This time around I wiil be at home and my other children will be around, so I am trying to think of something comfy to wear around them until the birth is happening; I think I will get a short nightgown.

I wanted to labour the same but with the induced labour and the fact he wasnt coming home I just wore the gown. I was bleeding alot too. I wanted a homebirth though.

I have had 4 hospital births (2 by choice, 2 where it wasn't my plan) The 3 that where natural I labored and gave birth naked I had no shame!
