Nursing tanks (I always get annoyed with any of the more "normal" type nursing bras and I like the stomach coverage with the tanks), hair ties and bobbi pins, digital camera (incase I don't want to use my iPhone), notebook (I like to keep track of things/journal/whatever. I am also bringing slipper socks this go around. I bought some $10 slippers at wal mart with DD that I really liked, but I figure the slipper socks have traction and will take up less space.

iPad is on our list too.

ETA: With DH's clothes/PJs I've also got an extra pair of shorts incase I want to be in the water (be it tub or shower) and need his help/want him with me. I don't mind being naked but I'm not so sure he'd be comfortable that way hah. I am also throwing some stickers in our bag as I want to have something for DD to have when she comes but I haven't had time to get her a big sister gift yet.

I'm trying to remember what all I put in mine. Here's my list:
Going home outfit for both baby and myself
Several outfits for baby to wear in the hospital
Bibs for baby to wear while feeding
My belly binder
Baby book for hand/footprints
Phone charger
Computer
Robe
Toiletries
My own pads and my "granny panties"

That's all I can think of for now....
