  • we forgot to bring my bag into the hospital when I checked in, lol...and my camera was in there...and I didn't even THINK about it until after he was born...I was SOOO BUMMED I didn't get any pictures of me before I delivered or during labor...
    but as far as that....the only thing I didn't have with with me (cause I hadn't bought any yet) was nursing tops and my Mom ran out and got me some the afternoon after I delivered...since I pretty much just stayed in my gown the first day...but that's obviously only if you're going to breastfeed...
    just make sure you have everything to make you comfy...shampoo and shower stuff, comfy clothes, pillows or books or w/e to keep you comfortable..

  • lol, I didn't have books either...was just a suggestion...and I didn't put two and two together about the section, lol--had a vaginal birth.

    just have whatever will make you and baby comfortable until you can get back home...
