Having my own gown will hopefully make the hospital feel a little more like home and less like a sick ward! Hospital gowns are not know for their modesty and I want to be able to walk around the hallway while in labor without feeling exposed. I purchased my gown from Baby Be Mine Maternity. Some of their gowns are quite pricey in my opinion so I bought a discounted gown from the outlet selection. Looking forward to meeting our sweet daughter in a few short months!

I want to stay at home as long as possible before heading to the hospital while I am in labor. I am planning on waiting until my contractions are about 3-5 minutes apart. The hospital is about a 5 minute drive from our house with a very short walk from the parking lot up to the Labor and Delivery floor. A friend told me she purchased her own hospital gown and wore it with a robe over it to the hospital. This way I can just check in and get back to relaxing instead of having to change clothes while in the midst of very active labor (maybe transition... fingers crossed!)
