    Last time my bag was thrown together was fast it wasn't funny. This time, I will pack a couple night clothes, change of street clothes. Products for me to use for washing and such. Camera and phone plus chargers. I didn't want pictures of her coming out of me and the same goes for this time around. I didn't even want my husband to hold my hand when pushing cause I grabbed the rails and bared down. It worked well since she came into this world with 4 pushes. The hospital provides a bag of diapers and wipes so I will need a couple of outfits for her and carseat plus blankets.

    Must remember my ear phones for my phone. I like to listen to music when in labour.
    Same at the rest really. Probably no dummy though, Miller wouldn't take one, and I actually found it a bit easier without. We'll see though.
    Ultrathin maternity pads. I used the big fat ones with Harry once and couldn't sit down on them!
    I ned to buy some microwavable heat packs. They were a godsend with Millers labour.

    Ohh, this is making me all excited!!!

    I never tried listening to music. I might have to try that. My labors are usually pretty fast although my last one was six hours and I thought I was gonna jump off the roof!! lol I should pack snacks for my husband and I think my oldest daughter will come this time. I am excited too!!

    I have really lllooonnnnggg labours, so both heat packs and music were great. I liked having my ear phones in because I could just concentrate on that without having to listen to anyone else.

    Snacks....very good idea!

    I don't like my husband looking as if he is not doing anything, and I like it very quiet meaning I don't want him asking me every five minutes are you alright honey. It drives me nuts, so snacks I think will make him look busy, and keep him from feeling useless.

    With A&A I was in the hospital for a week and a half total-- A full week before I had them, then another 3.5 days. Fun stuff let me tell you. I literally didn't have a thing packed. We threw some stuff together on the way out of the door. Thank goodness we only lived about 3 min away from the hospital. We were supplied with everything we needed really---diapers and wipes, lanolin, onesies for babies. I stayed in the hospital gown... I never did think of bringing my own PJ's. And don't laugh, but I didn't even think about putting on a bra with nursing pads. I was SO TIRED, and sore... I think I finally made a comment to a nurse about how I needed more towels since I was leaking everywhere. She was really nice and said she would be happy to bring me some nursing pads if I had brought a nursing bra. Um HELLO?!?! Yes please! lol Like I said I was too tired to think of anything beyond nursing them and trying to rest. This time I know what to expect and will be ready. I hope.

    Gosh, I haven't even thought of this yet. DD was a planned CS due to breech presentation. I'm really really hoping to VBAC this time but we need baby to be heads down. I notice he likes to be head up lately which makes me nervous. I know we still have plenty of time for his to turn but he really seems to like being heads up for the past 2 weeks or so. Plus what I would pack for a CS would be slightly different (labor wise stuff) than for a VBAC.
