What am I forgetting?!

I go in to have my baby tomorrow and I'm so paranoid I'm forgetting things I should do before I go in...what did you forget (not just packing, just in general, but packing too) or what was your checklist?

  • i didn't take anything. the hospital will provide anything you may need. And you will be there for a few days, so someone can always run home to grab a must have item. relax, and congratulations!

  • Relax everything will be fine. Congates with the new baby. Don't forget a Camera.

  • Lol...it is so funny that you bring up the camera...I have checked my bag SO many times to make sure its in there and that I have the charger and cords and everything.

  • i forgot my own pillow and blanket...i mean thehospital provided some, but I wished I had my own from home. Try to relax though....if you forget anything you can always send someone to get it.
    I didnt forget, but I didnt have a chance to pay the bills that needed paid that day(had him on a friday and was supposed to pay bills and run errands that day because I was being induced on Monday)

  • Thick socks. They did give me one pair but I found after walking around the hospital I wanted more than 1 pair. Or non-slip slippers too.

  • Yeah i wish I had had my own pillow! Are you being induced? If so, bring something to do! It is so boring until the contractions start, then it's like BAM! Anyways I was sooooo glad I brought my laptop because the night before was so boring, and the nurses wouldn't let me sleep. Um do you have blankets for the baby to cover up the carseat when you go home? Also some clothes for you? (not pre-preg clothes though)

  • lol srhmldndo, yes, I'm being induced. I'm a week overdue. lol...I'm not disillusioned into thinking my wide butt is going back into my pre-pregnancy clothes anytime soon. egh. I think I am going to take my lap top though, that's a good idea. Hopefully I can get farther ahead for school while I'm waiting. I was induced for over 2 days with my last daughter and it was SO boring!!!

  • When I had my 5th in 06 I was so busy making sure everyone at home was all set for me to be gone for days...I actually forgot to pack myself underwear...had to have the DH go home and pack me some clothes and bring my pillow...way too many kids!
