what to wear for trip home

With DD's birth I just had the clothes I'd packed when I assumed I would be having an easy vaginal birth.

This time I'd like to be riding home in something a little more comfortable.

Surgery is tentatively schedules for 7/22 with a surgeon I'm unfamiliar with (I won't get into that) so it will be hot. Loose dress? Yoga pants? Pajamas? I just don't want anything that is going to rub against my incision.

I wore work out pants...I had the abdominal belt on so it covered the incision...I preferred the "support" the spandex gave me..but since it will be so hot when this one is born, I might wear a dress home...

I wore really comfy pj pants in the hospital...they were high waisted draw string and baggy around the incision....after the first day of course :)

I just got a pair of gaucho pants at Target with a fold down waist I think would work great. That and a nursing tank, also from Target, or any tank top would be my choice.

Let me tell you that I've made the mistake of wearing something too tight and uncomfortable on the way home and it was rotton!


You know those clothes that you wear right at the end of your PG - the ones that are the only things that will fit you because you're soooo big!? Well, that's what I would recommend. I have a very baggy, comfy dress that would be perfect and an extra large pair of pants that are super comfy that would be what I choose.


Sounds like you're thinking along the right path...

I went in the hospital fully expecting to have a vaginal delivery, and packed a maternity dress to come home in. Luckily I also packed some high waisted panties, so between the 2 it was a good combo.
