I'm taking LED flameless candles to use around the bathtub at the hospital so I don't have to have the annoying overhead lights on. I'm also bringing a sound machine so I can just listen to rain or ocean or white noise. I don't think I'll want music when I'm in active labor. I have a track of birth affirmations from hypnobirthing that I may listen to as well.
Remember to bring chargers for cameras, camcorders, laptops and cell phones.
I'll pack a few snacks but we have a special room on the L&D floor at my hospital filled with snacks especially for the laboring mamas. Things like crackers, breakfast bars, bagels, juices, sodas, popsicles, soup, yogurt, etc.
The babies in my family always have a special white outfit w/smocking as their coming home outfit. Sometimes it's a dress if it is a girl but I asked for Ava's to be a little bubble suit so it snaps at the crotch. My mom already purchased that and I've washed it and it's hanging ready to go.
I'll be bringing some cloth diapers, socks and extra receiving blankets for her as well.
I've already started assembling sample sizes of toiletries so I can pack that stuff ahead of time and not have to worry about something getting missed. The only thing I'll need to make sure goes in will be my glasses if I'm not already wearing them. I'm also packing stuff for DH because I don't want him to have to run home continuously after the baby is born to shower, brush his teeth, etc.
