    I got mothercare maternity ones

    Got the maternity pads, breast pads and disposable nickers on the 3 for 2 offer in the sale,

    Im sure the heavy flow will work too although i was shocked to read on the back of the pack that you need a full pack for 1 day !!!!!!!!!! thats a hell of a lot of bleeding

    I am slightly concerned was only gonna get a couple of packs but think I may look at getting more. Plus disposable pants wasn't gonna get any of them but looks like I may need to. Think I was being to hopeful having a c-section. lol

    Tesco ones are 90p for 10. I have 3 packs so far. Gonna have to buy a box of them I think.

    I'm the same hugsy - I HATE pads. Only ever used pads once for my very first period, and even that was only 1 pad as I begged a friend for tampons ( I was on a school activity holiday in Wales and I wasn't buying any!!!)

    Wasn't gonna get any disposable knickers - they feel horrible! Might have to re-think that too!

    I've bought boots Again this time.

    A tip i was told last time was drop a few drops of lavender oil on the pad as it helps with healing. X

    Oh it does all sound pretty horrible to be fair, I never knew before gettin pg that u bled so much after so not impressed

    not quite related but for some reason im also discusted at the thought of delivering the placenta, no idea why but it sends a shiver right trough me

    Did I read somewhere that we are not to use the normal sanitary pads like always etc? I might have made this up but I 'm sure I read there was a reason why we should use maternity specific ones.

    I only have 10, I'm thinking that might not be enough lol

    I've just bought Asda's own maternity pads up to now but I am going to buy some more from elsewhere just so I have a variety in case they aren't any good. As for disposable underwear I have just bought 10 pairs of cheap Asda knickers which were reduced to £2 for 5 pairs so figured I would just throw them away afterwards.......It's difficult knowing what to expect when it's your first pregnancy.

    Your meant to use maternity pads at the beginning as they are more absorbent not to mention longer and more padded! Brilliant to protect stitches. They are also better if MW needs to check bleeding etc.
    I found normal pads rubbed and irritated. I also bought cheap underwear instead of disposable more for comfort :)
