My old Whitlams 'Eternal Nightcap' tour t-shirt and about half a dozen undies - not all at once though lol! I hopped in and out of the bath a few times but pulled my t-shirt and a fresh pair of knickers on each time. Only had one internal just before pushing, so the undies stayed on till then (I was just more comfortable that way). When DD was born, just lifted the t-shirt up and she was placed on my chest straight away original.gif And the t-shirt made it through labour fine, I didn't throw up, and while I lost over 3 litres of blood in the aftermath, none of it made it onto the top wink.gif

I went in wearing a pair of navy blue trackie pants and a black longsleeved top... Don't know why seeings it was the middle of summer.

During labour, I lost the pants...of course but the long sleeved top and socks stayed on. When I had finished given birth and my son was all wrapped up in his wheelie bed, I looked down at my top and it looked like I had been attacked by snails.

I was wearing a long button down pyjama shirt, but they told me to take it off before they gave me an epidural as they couldn't get to my back easily.  So I wore a hospital gown.  But I don't think I would've cared what I was wearing when in labour.

I used the shower and bath so I was naked for the birth. After DD was born I was in a hospital gown. I found that once you're in labour you don't really care about what you're in as you're too focused on the contractions.
