Just thinking about putting it together seems a little crazy already. But I'll be 33 weeks on Friday, and at my OB appt yesterday she said LO is starting to drop already! I kind of thought so just because of the feeling I was getting 'down there' but I thought it was really early, especially for a BTDT. She thinks he will come at least a week early, possibly more. I'm not complaining, not with the heat we are already getting here. Although, I he needs to wait until after 7pm on July 21st...DH just bought our tickets to see Dark Knight Rises at Navy Pier IMAX, and I'd really hate to miss that!
Basically I've started thinking about getting pieces of my bag together so if nothing else, I can tell DH where to pick the stuff up in the house if we go in early. Here's what I'm looking at so far. What are you ladies taking?i Really hated wearing the hospital gowns after delivery last time (and DH actually showed up with pre-preg jeans and tank top...in Dec), so I want to take my own clothes.
My Hospital Bag
Socks 2-3 pairs
Pajamas (2 sets)
Cloths to wear in Hospital...probably light weight shorts and nursing tops
Something to wear home (Similar to hospital cloths)
Shampoo and Conditioner
Body Wash and Loofa
Toothbrush and Toothpaste
Hairbrush and Ponytails
A little make-up (I'm vain for pics! Just some Magix (Avon clear coverup) and eyeliner
Flip Flops, although I'll probably just wear them there.
Stuff for Baby
Going Home Outfit (1 in newborn, 1 in 0-3)
Mittens and Hat
CLoth Diapers (maybe)
Also can't forget my Ipod, Phone and Charger on the way out the door.
I don't plan on taking much for the baby. Our hospital gave us tons of stuff last time and we didn't really need much. They had diapers, wipes, rash cream, vasaline, cloths and blankets, just about everything you'd need. I still want to take him some of his own cloths though. We're going to cloth diaper Little Man, but I plan on using the disposable that the hospital provides while there. Might just take 1-2 in the diaper bag for coming home...and that's still a might. I'll probably toss some snacks in too, but I'm not as worried about those.
It seems like such a long list, but we live 45 minutes from the hospital and I just hate the idea of needing something and not having it. Both DH and my mom will be there, and taking turns coming home to see DS, but after DH's stunt of pre-preg jeans and a tank in Dec I'm not so sure I trust him this time around! lol Luckily my mom has a little more sense, and SIL lives in the same town as the hospital, and she knows too after having 2 kids there.
I think I'm going to divide my bag into 2, 1 with stuff I'll want during the delivery (socks, toothbrush...in case of vomiting like last time...TMI sorry!, ponytails etc.) then the other can sit in the trunk and DH or my mom can get it from the car after the delivery. And the toiletries are all travel size so they don't take up as much room.
Let's hear from you ladies!
