Hospital Bag?

What are you going to pack in your Hospital Bag?

I am 33 weeks and will pack my bag next week. I've started making my list of everything to bring and I want to make sure I don't forget anything. This is my 3rd baby but I have pregnancy brain kicking in. LOL!

  • I never packed one with my son (planned home birth), but with my daughter I packed clothes for me and her and toiletries and diapers, but nothing else... one thing I forgot that was VERY important... clothes for my husband. He stayed at the hospital with me, which was 40 miles from home and so he didn't have anything to change into :( I was depressed and having trouble getting around and scared and he knew him leaving me alone there would make me even sadder and more afraid, so he was so sweet and stayed with me and barely complained about his crusty socks lol. I felt terrible! None of the lists I read or moms I asked said anything about packing for hubby!

    So pack clothes for hubby! Even if he's not staying with you, just one change in case he gets birth fluids on him.
