  • With my 2 children I packed mine around the 36th week. This time around i'm having twins so i'm thinking of packing around week 30 just to be on the safe side (I'm 26w right now) I usually include:

    1. Warn socks or house shoes for me
    2. Going home outfits for the babies and me
    3. Personal hygiene kit with my favs in it because I can't stand the kind that the hospital gives you
    4. Pads and granny panties (again I can't stand the big 2x4s the hospital gives)
    5. Camera with fully charged battery
    6. Heating pad (I didnt pack this with my first but found it to be an AWESOME idea for the 2nd time around)
    7. My wallet (So I dont have to bring my purse as well)
    8. Comfortable slip on shoes
    9. My fav pillow

  • Aww congrats!! We are having 2 boys =) We were originally told that they were boy/girl, but my girl magically grew a penis within 2 weeks of the first u/s LOL Just when your packing your bag, think of anything you couldn't do without at home (within reason) and throw it in there girl!
