I'm getting my hospital bag together for the delivery. I've been told all sorts of things to bring, not to bring, etc. So, what did you take to the hospital? What was worthless? What was the best thing you brought?

Best thing I brought was a comfortable shirt so I didnt have to walk around with the hospital gown on the entire time.

The most worthless thing I brought was a bunch of different outfits for the baby. 

Also bring a camera and batteries and a video recorder! Good luck on your delivery.

I brought all sorts of stuff-clothes, toiletries, yoga ball, etc.  The only stuff I used was my ipod/ihome and the toiletries.  I found the hospital gown easiest to wear.  I delievered dd shortly after we arrived at the hospital and we were discharged after 24 hours...  so we didn't really need anything else.

I didn't bring much. Really comfortable clothes and my favorite blanket. I forgot cameras so double check that you bring those.

I took stuff and used nothing except for the toothbrush and toothpaste. I didn't want to wear my underwear b/c the hospital undies were much more comfy after my emergency c-section.
