So, I’m sure all of you preggo ladies out there have been roaming around on Pinterest, looking for ideas for nurseries and instructions on how to do all the new things we have to learn (breastfeeding, pumping, diapering…). I must say that my secret baby pin board is full of these types of things. (Yes, I said secret pin board. I don’t particularly care what others think of things that I like and things I want to do when my little girl is here, so I keep all that to myself).
Lately I’ve been thinking about getting one of the fancy hospital gowns from Etsy. I know I’m not going to want a ton of pictures taken while I’m in labor, but I think it will make me feel prettier and cleaner to have a special gown just for me. The only problem is that the ones I like are all $60+. Now, I like to feel pretty and clean, but with a baby on the way does it make sense to spend that much on something I’ll wear once and then get all nasty with goo and blood? I know I can wash it and wear it again at home for breastfeeding, but then again, do I want to wear something around the house that has snaps and ties holding the back together so that my butt doesn’t show? Nah. I think it would be too tempting for my husband, who would most likely unsnap or untie at every opportunity, before running away laughing at my butt.
So, to all the pregnant ladies out there. What are your thoughts on these beautiful gowns that Etsy is trying to tempt me with? Will you be spending some dough on a cute gown for delivery? Only time will tell if I break down and purchase one, but I’ll be sure to post a picture of it if I do!
