Taryn - time is winding down!! You must be SOOOO excited!! I plan on packing my hospital bag today too so this post will help me out tremendously! I just wanted to wish you the best of luck and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for a nice quick smooth delivery and big healthy baby!!!
Everyone gave great ideas. If you are into them, bring a book of puzzles or magazines. They can be quick to do or read so you can put down easily if the baby needs attention. I actually brought the newest Harry Potter book. The nurse laughed saying 'when will you have the time to read that?" Finished it before I got discharged - three days with peace and quiet? Please! Delivering a baby is actually a vacation for me! LOL!! Good luck!
How exciting. The one thing I wanted this time in labor (because I actually experienced with an epi that didn't work) was CHAPSTICK. OMG I wanted it so bad. My dh thought he should eat his dinner first in front of me. He should have been smacked. Anyway, I finally told him to go to the car and get my chapstick or else I was going to kill him. Didn't take him long to go to the car and back, lol.
wow! how exciting! i think everyone covered most of the necessary items... i'm trying to remember if there was anything i wished i had when i was in the hospital that i forgot...nope. since it will be a short stay(meaning not for bedrest), i think its all been suggested. it's right around the corner for you!! can't wait!
