Have bags ready like a week early. For you, bring comfy clothes, slippers, socks, check with your hospital to see what all they provide, because most will provide a lot. Make sure you have personal stuff for you, anything to get you through labor, etc. something comfy to wear home from the hospital, FYI bring EXTRA socks, my water broke and went all over mine, then there was blood all over the next pair from actually having the baby, the next pair got crap on them and then I didn't have any more. See what you need for your SO/mom/whoever is staying with you that way they can actually stay with you. BRING YOUR ALREADY FILLED OUT PAPERWORK! HUGE THING.
Bring stuff for baby, car seat, diaper bag, extra clothes, blankets, etc. if you're planning on having his pictures taken there, bring an outfit for that, an outfit for him to come home in, hats, etc. depending on the weather where you live.
