|these chairs are still on major clearance!|
36 weeks today! While I still hope this babe cooks until 40-41 weeks, I’ve got my bag packed juuuuuust in case.
I packed up this weekender which is usually my carry on for plane travel. Of course, some things won’t go in there until it is time – like make up. But I’ve got the rest all packed up. Last time I delivered at a hospital about forty five minutes from us. Even at 3 am it still took us that long! This time I’m delivering at a different hospital that’s just five minutes from our house. Which makes me less anxious. I know the hospital will have everything I’ll truly need but this time I just want to be comfy after labor. I don’t want to wear hospital gowns if I can help it- I realize my comfies are going to need some good washing after and I am 110% okay with that.
Here’s what’s in this bag:
Birth plan. This is a great guide and what I used.
two robes: I am a robe junky! This plum pretty sugar one and this cozy pima cottton one.
Slimming nursing singlet : this is supposed to speed up recovery and it doesn’t seem too tight – but we will see if it’s comfortable for the day after labor and when we have the bulk of visitors.
hospital gown: one of my sweet brides last time gave me a monogrammed hospital gown. I wore it last time and it’s coming with me this time!
cozy slippers: these were a Christmas gift and they are so comfy!
night gowns: both button downs so perfect for nursing. this one and this one!
nursing bras: packed this one and this one. Even though they are so comfy I want to wear them now!
underwear: packed a few. I know they give you some but man they were the worst.
Toiletries and Make up!
Going home outfit: probably just some yoga pants, nursing top, and an open long cardigan.
My nice camera
These footed onesies with built in mitts are washed and packed.
bunny kickee pants // lamb footie // monogrammed footie – will likely just bust these out for visitors and for heading home.
infant carseat is ready in the car!
May pop more in here as the month goes along as I think of things. No harm in over preparing in my opinion (: Anything that you loved for labor, delivery and the post partum hospital stay that you think I should add? Please share!!
