I am having a scheduled C-section in a few weeks and Im trying to get my bag ready for the hospital stay...I went online for one of those "Hospital check lists" and they all focus a lot on the things you'll need for labor (which I obviously wont need) I was just wondering what are some of the necessities I will need/want for after the C-section? Like is a gown better than pajama pants since it wont rub on my incision? What kind of underwear are the most comfortable? Just things like that. Thanks! :)Answer Question

If you don't want to wear a hospital gown the whole time, I suggest buying some PJ's...but make sure they won't be too tight in the abdominal area (your stomach may still be swollen if you have maternity pj's, that might work). Slippers were nice to have too, especially after the first day when they want you to walk a little. When I left the hospital, I asked if they could send extra mesh panties home with me because I found those to be more comfortable than any of my own and if they get messed up somehow, it didn't matter. Bring something comfy that wont bother your tummy to wear home. I brought yoga pants with the roll down waistband. You will still bleed a little from your vagina even those you didn't give birth from there. You may want to get some extra long pads. The ones they supply in the hospital are as thick as diapers and pretty uncomfortable.
