Yours truly has a baby on the way. I’m super excited to grow a little bump that I can dress with cute maternity clothes (not an oxymoron, I promise you). But what about when I get to the hospital? Yes, my brain has jumped ahead 5 months already and begun obsessing over that day.
I recently learned that you can bring your own gown with you for your hospital stay. Needless to say, I was immediately on board with that plan. With all the pictures that will likely be happening, who wants to be immortalized in an oversized sheet that washes you out? Plus, if you’re like me, looking fabulous is a pretty important confidence boost when meeting a very strange and scary day.
