For the hospital I am taking my own underwear and my own pjs! I love pj pants and I want to be comfy! I always buy new underwear and use the old at the hospital. I will also take my boppy pillow.

At home I have some snacks for me in the bookcase where I am keeping the baby stuff used for night, and I bought some new body spray and socks and other things like that to make me look pretty even if I don't REALLY look it!! lol

I'm not taking much. I am trying to pack light. I am taking all of my travel shampoos, body wash, razor, etc. I'm bringing my makeup so I look good in pictures and some comfy socks. Other than that, I plan on wearing the hospital disposable underwear and gowns for most of the time. I think I have 2 shirts and a pair of comfy pants for going home and/or lounging around. Plus I can have DH bring me something from home since he will be going home each day to check on Nicholas.

I am not taking much I don't plan on being in the hospital that long Smile But I should have extra in the car just incase, the hospital is an hour drive from us so hubby can't run back and forth for me.

What other things have you bought for after the baby is here?

I can't wait to lose weight and buy new clothes!!

I haven't bought anything for myself beside stuff to make life easier with a baby. Like the Sit N Stand stroller and a few baby carriers.

As far as luxuries for the hospital I haven't thought that far out. We are about 10 miles from the hospital so Dh will run back and forth to get stuff for me.

We're about 3 miles from the Hospital...so I don't think I'm going to pack much of anything for myself....just music for during the birth, my camera, and maybe a snack or two for right after.

For after the baby is here, I've gotten a few nursing tank tops and nursing bras. Back in Oct I bought some comfy pants and a few cute shirts to match for lounging around the house. I also got myself 2 new nursing bras. Also, I am getting a new watch for Christmas and that will come in handy because I will need to time Emily's feedings. Other than that, I don't really *need* anything. I am trying not to spend too much money since once Febuary comes we will be in a week-by-week uncertain money situation but we are just trusting that everything is going to work out for the best and we will make sacrifices where we are able.

I haven't made a single prep yet!

I just generally go by what is on most dr lists--chapstick, slippers, etc. I am at the hospital so short a time, that it usually doesn't matter and I don't use half of it anyways.

I plan on bringing my ipod, nursing bra, fuzzy socks, my favorite pillow and a nursing pillow. I might be a C-Section mom so I will be in the hospital for a while.
