  • the essentials like toothbrush...hairbrush...deoderants. Loose fitting clothes (like something youd wear at 6 months pregnant) for when u go home. Robe/nightgown optional. Clothes for baby a onesie a shirt and some bottoms. Carseat. and a blanket or two depending on the weather. This is all stuff on the checklist my hospital gave me on the ob tour

  • have you not taken a birthing class? I start mine on wednesday and they've already supplied me with a list of things to bring/have packed. Maybe you could check with the hospital you're going to deliver at?

  • Yeah socks, fluffy ones. And maybe lotions and stuff, on case its a long delivery. My mom gave me massages throughout my labor and it was a great help! maybe cd's if they have a cd player and food you like for after you deliver and don't feel like eating hospital food!

  • Do you have your doctor's number by the phone , is your bag packed , do you know the route to the hospital, I know that sounds funny but when you are panicing everything goes out of the window including directions to the hospital.
