Hospital Bag

Our bags are packed and sitting by the front door ready to run! I've packed for DaddyO, Baby O and I.

Toiletries: Toothbrushes for DO (DaddyO) and I, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, loofah, soap, deodorant, Chapstick, hair ties, head bands, a couple water bottles and a few tootsie pop suckers. I packed a couple pads and disposable bra pads but I heard you don't need to bring your own because they provide you with plenty. I will definitely be stealing from their stock carts.

Pass the time: Skipbo- our favorite card game, though I'm not sure I'll be totally up to playing cards, iPad, phone, camera, chargers for everything.


Coming home outfit for baby: I picked a few cute outfits but no photos until she's in them :) I don't know if she'll fit in newborn or 0-3 months so I brought outfits in both sizes. No diapers because I again plan on stealing.

Coming home outfit for me: Liz Lange Maternity Dress from Target in gray. They say to wear what you would be wearing around 5 months. I also packed a couple yoga pants and tanks. Socks for walking around the gross hospital floor. I also bought a 6-pack of very sexy Hanes granny panties. I haven't purchased underwear in a 'pack' since I was like, 8. Nursing bras.

Clothes for DO. 

Insurance, ID and birth plan. My birth plan isn't too crazy. A few of my 'rules' are: nobody in delivery other than DO, immediate skin-to-skin contact, no pacifiers or bottles as I plan to breastfeed, no medical students since this is my first and I'm already a worried-first-time-mom, if the baby and I need to be separated for any reason at all then DO is to go with her, yes to pain meds and all medical testing that needs to be done on the baby must be done in our presence- no nursery.

Change for the vending machine. Our hospital's food is actually pretty so-so. DO loves the salad bar and they have tons of options so I'm not too worried about being hungry while we're there. I also heard that Jimmy John's delivers to the maternity ward - no joke!

I'm sure I'm missing some items because that's just how I pack. Due date is now 13 days away (July 2nd) but I'm hoping we get some action this week. I've been feeling a little 'off' lately and can't describe the feeling other than just being READY. Come on Baby O!
