HOSPITAL BAG: Packing My Bag

At 36 weeks pregnant I finally got around to washing, organising and packing my hospital bag. I had originally planned to have it ready by around 32 weeks but was just too busy trying to get the house ready for our little arrival. It was such a weight off my mind once I had packed it, knowing that if I did go into labour I would be completely unprepared! We still need to practice putting the car seat in and out of the car. I've heard of a lot of new parents who hadn't and were then trying to work it out in the hospital carpark!
After reading 101 different hospital bag lists I settled on the items I thought I'd need/want with me. There are a couple of things I've since packed that aren't in these photos, such as headphones, bendy straws (for Tom to 'feed' me water), jug, going home outfit and my camera/charger. I also need to get some magazines and snacks for both Tom and I, but other than that we're pretty much done.

  1. I didn't think of taking paracetamol and ibuprofen...adding them now :) A lot of women I've spoken to recommended feminine wipes because they're much gentler to use when you need the toilet.
    I keep mentioning to my husband about trying the car seat out, but he's convinced it can't be that difficult - no doubt we'll be the couple in the car park struggling and looking for videos on YouTube.
