    I agree with the pp, take a camera with lots of memory. Don't forget to bring a charger! :)

  • All I can say is take a ton of pictures...even if you don't think you will want it later. You can always delete or throw away a picture but you can never get that memory back again!

  • With my first, I wish I had something to squeeze or bite on. That pushing is hard stuff. My 2nd was a c-section, so it wasn't necessary.

  • I brought my ipod with my second. Total lifesaver that we didn't have the first time around.
