Delivering In Style...

I first learned about disposable hospital gowns when I watched Tori Spelling deliver baby Stella in this HOT NUMBER from BYOG (Bring Your Own Gown).
BYOG is a Christian company!

The one she wore below is $95 OUCH! 

Isn't this adorable??
This is what I will be delivering baby Nineya in!
Except mine has a green and white polka dot bow!

Mine was $25 (normally $40-$50) on ETSY from
She has THE CUTEST styles and fabrics I have seen!
You can even send her your own material and she will make you one for $25!

It is a disposable hospital gown (that I won't dispose of)
that buttons up the back and also has snaps on the side for easy nursing.

I want to be HIP during my hospital stay right?

My blood pressure has been OUTTA.CONTROL.
I have felt TERRIBLE since Sunday.
I am on moderated bed rest.
Even walking to the potty sends the BP sky high.
My BP meds were changed on Monday and increased today.

CANNOT WAIT until The Captain gets home Sunday!

Thanking God for this amazing 80 degree weather so I can send the kids outside!

That's a cute idea! I never realized you could "BYOG" to deliver at the hospital. Bet you'll be the most stylish momma there! :o)
That's kinda sucky about your BP. I'll keep you and baby Nineya in my prayers.

I love your gown! I actually made my girls' dresses from that same fabric:) I was never a "stylish mama" at the hospital- well, one I didn't make it to the hospital (no advised!:)

As for moderated bedrest, I am praying for you my friend, I spent 5 months in bed with my pregnancy with Lenna- it was challenging mentally and I didn't have any other littles running around that needed me... totally worth it though. She was still an NICU baby, but every extra day I was able to carry her made a huge difference!
Praying friend, let me know if you need anything:)

Holy cow- you are going to be one hot momma!! I didn't know those gowns existed.
I hate that you are feeling bad. Take care of yourself (and that sweet baby). I wish I were closer so I could help you.:)
In Him,

man i could have been stylin?

hope that bp gets under control soon! eliminating salt is usually impossible. even milk has a high sodium content!

I am in love with that. i was in the hospital for almost 6 weeks before i delivered our last and they would not let me where anything but a hospital gown because I had a PICC line. ooh man this would have made me feel so much better

John Deere Mom said...

Oh, the weather is absolutely amazing! I hope you feel better! That hospital gown is SO much cuter than the standard issue. Love it!

Scott said...

Jenn- sorry to hear your BP is dangerously high. I'll be praying for you!

Let me know if I can help with nutrition tips to lower it through diet :-)

Thinking of you and knowing you will be ONE very adorable Mom delivering that sweet baby of yours!

God bless and love,

Love the gown!

Rest, rest, rest girl! You don't want to be messing with drs. orders! Praying!!!

Love the gown! Great idea, too. I never brought anything with me to the hospital but a friend gave me one with Bennett and I loved it. It makes you feel better than wearing the hospital gowns! I didn't know you were having issues with your BP. I will be praying for you. Keep us posted...
