Our hospital bags....

Well, the benefit of a scheduled cesarean was that I could have my hospital bags set with everything I could or would want or need.  Which meant my wardrobe was set, as was Kaitlyn's and Dusty's.

For the day of the birth, I wore a lovely blue hospital gown provided by the hospital.  Dusty however had a new shirt I had found for him at Goore's.  I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and was able to get the last one in his size the day before Samantha was born.  It is dark brown and reads "Proud Dad" and Dusty said it was really comfortable, which I'm sure was great for him!

For Kaitlyn, I had ordered some customs scrubs from KidzScrubz on etsy.  I LOVE them, and so did she.  She said they were cool and they did look super cute.  It was embroderied with "Big Sister Kaitlyn" and she even sent a matching hospital style hat.  She loves her doctor's outfit and wants to wear it every day.

For me, I actually got a couple of things.  The first, was my favorite.  I wore it the day after surgery and was so glad I did.  I wasn't able to shower yet, I was sore, I was still being examined a lot at my incision site, and nursing every hour or so.  Plus, I also had the IV in at that time, as well as the catheter.  But, I had to start walking the halls.  So, this gown from Annie & Isabel was absolutely perfect!  I got to feel clean and pretty, but it was still incredibly practical.  It was so much better than the hospital gown because it covered everything.  I didn't have to worry about wearing the two gowns to cover everything or constantly pull it up on my shoulders, and to know that I was completely covered without worrying if I was exposed.  I got so many compliments on it from the nurses and other patients when we walked the halls.  It's a good thing I still had the tag on it when we got to the hospital because I had so many people ask where we got it.  Don't be surprised if you come by to visit and I'm wearing it :P

And the second outfit we wore on Thursday.  By we, I mean me and Samantha.  Old Navy carries matching maternity pajamas with baby gowns.  For the second day in a row we were the talk of the third floor lol.  The pajamas were perfect thing to wear that day.  It was comfortable, felt great, and felt like I was dressed.  And as my milk came in, it was so easy to nurse with, comfortable on my incision and it was cute lol.

And those were my favorite outfits that we enjoyed.  In case anyone is wondering :P
