I was feeling an intense urge to buy something so I went over to visit my friend Amazon.com and found this:
“What is it?” You might be thinking. Well, it’s a disposable labor gown! Now, I’m not the type of person who needs to look put together all the time, but for some reason this thing really appealed to me.
When I think back to my labor with Ari, I was wearing this hot little number:
I mean, surely you see the aesthetic difference. The more attractive labor gown (pictured above) boasts that it is 100% cotton, very comfortable, and has room for “fetal monitors” and “IV cords.” I plan on doing a home birth, so hopefully I won’t have to worry about such things.
Anyway, for $20, I figured, why the hell not?
Although, I will say, that by the end of my labor with Ari, I wanted nothing to do with my hospital gown and ripped the entire thing off when I was ready to push. We’ll see if that happens again this time.
