I brought a package of Hanes Her Way cotton undies in one size larger than my prepregnancy size (the BEST for postpartum!), two thick fuzzy men's sweatsuits in my normal size (cause they are pretty stretchy) and a few pairs of warm socks (I had my baby in January 2004 and it was COLD that month!). I wasn't planning on having a C/S but everything I brought worked out perfectly! The sweatsuit allowed me to move freely without worrying about exposing by bits and pieces and the waistband was stretchy enough that the nurses were able to check my incision with no problem! It made me feel so much more normal to be in my own clothes - wearing a hospital gown made me feel too much like a patient!
