Slippers/dressing gown
Loootttttsssss of maternity pads
Massive knickers that don't sit around the tummy
Comfy pjs that are loose on the tummy (a nightie is probably best)
Hair ties

Good luck! smile

As I've just suggested on someone else's thread, over the bump leggings are good for a coming home outfit because they go over your scar. I'd also recommend a cup with a straw for easier drinking whatever position you are in.

Lots of snacks and slippers that go on your whole foot and fit well (for the first post-spinal walks).

Bendy straws. Was dying of thirst when I came round and to keep trying to sit up proper to drink was painful. They were so handy

Mahoosive black knickers. Got a job lot from primark. They were sooooo comfy

Lots of pizza delivery menu snacks/sandwiches/juice. Phone charger. Kindle. Just about everything else can be brought later.

Loose dress/nightie and as other have said, really frickin huge pants!

I ended up going home commando in the car after emcs as had packed leggings (over the bump - but still too tight on scar) and normal pants (when what I needed were pants that could be mistaken for a fitted cot sheet!)

Colpermin for the trapped wind pain. Would have been scuppered without it.
