  • get your car seat checked. Buy a baby book to bring to hospital once baby comes (if you ask nicely they might do the hand and foot prints right in the book for you). Charged camera, granola bars in hospital bag...

    Get a massage and a pedicure before baby comes! You deserve it!

  • Make sure there are fresh batteries in the camera. Also the diaper bag, make sure it's packed. That's not as big a necessity, both of my kids got sent home with the open bag of diapers that they hadn't yet used.

  • pack your bag and once you have the shower put the seat in the car and pack the baby's things. Here's a tip too make sure you have a few sizes of take home clothes because you dont know how tiny or big he/she will be lol. My 1st was born at 6 lbs 4 oz and the outfit i wanted him going home in was too big... a 0-3 month romper. he ended up going home in just a onesie that was even a little big on him. At home I had some preimee hand me downs that he wore for about a week then he was in 0-3 month clothes
