    Hi.

    what is everyone wearing in labour?
    Might seem a strange question to ask or plan as everyone says who's had children that i wont be thinking about what i look like, but i dont want to be fully naked!!

    I was thinking of getting a nightshirt so when LO is born she can be put straight onto my chest without a problem.

    I had a maternity nightie with me, but I started out in the pool naked, then went onto a bed, so ended up naked throughout!

    I bought loose nighties but in the end they threw me in a hospital gown for the epidural.
    Lol I do remember at one point the midwife apologising cause she'd left my bum sticking out the back! (I was on all fours)

    My OH is a massive prude, he was trying to persuade me to wear a bikini top in the pool, LOL! I couldn't even remember my name and everyone had their hands and noses up my lady bits, I really couldn't care less about anyone seeing my boobs!
