What to Wear Home from the Hospital?

Hi All,

Am new here, and have a TAH scheduled for this Friday morning, so I don't have time to read everything I want to from this newly-found wonderful site.
What should I bring to wear home from the hospital?
Will I be able to sit in the car and put on a seatbelt?

I haven't gone yet, but from what I have read here, loose pants and bigger underwear......also, take a pillow to put between you and the seat belt!!!!! Best wishes to you, my TAH is the day before yours!!!!

You need to have loose fitting pants, or pajama bottoms. I sat in the car just fine, just didn't let the seatbelt touch my belly. Good luck on your surgery.

trip home from the castle

I showered and put on p.j.'s for the ride home, with slippers. It was a 45 minute ride in our SUV which wasn't comfortable. I was able to use a seatbelt. I placed it up above the incision and did ok. For the follow-up visit we borrowed my mom' s Lincoln and the ride was smooth.
I Wish you the very best and a speedy recovery.

Hi, Best wishes! I am having my surgery on January 23rd and I am planning on wearing home the sweat pants I wore to the hospital that day. Alot of the sisters wear P.j. pants home too. I think whatever you wear should be oversized and comfy. Take good care and I hope this helps! Melanie

Under the Ohhhh or Murphy's Law category, I read somewhere on this site that you shouldn't sit in the front seat if your vehicle has dual air bags....

I also read that you should ware what you are going to bed in, why change when you get home.

Good luck and happy home coming!

Love this site!

I wore loose drawstring yoga pants. The had no elastic in the waist. The seatbelt was not too terrible, but if I had a pillow to cover my hortizontal incision I would have been happier. I could not wear pj's until the second week, I opted for a knee length nightgown with sleeves. I live in snow country.

Good luck with your surgery. Everyday gets better!!

I am planning on wearing track pants, 2 sizes larger underwear, and a long sleeve t-shirt to the hospital and then home. I will be wearing their lovely garb while there

Oh, and don't forget your chapstick

Good luck Friday.

What to Wear Home from the Hospital?

Hello all. I actually wore jammy bottoms and a sweater and then because it was a little chilly here I also wore my housecoat. Then on my feet I wore my slippers. I have to say looking back I must have looked funny but I really did not care. As long as I was comfortable. I hope that that helps.

Since I was a "winter princess" I went with sweatpants and a sweater (and some nice cotton undies 1 size larger than normal).
