I didn't get around to packing my hospital bag last time until labour started LOL! But I am going to get it done earlier this time just for that piece of mind that I don't forget anything I might truly want.
I plan on packing:
Gatorade and homemade electrolyte drink to drink during labour (plain fruit juice made me feel really nauseous last time and I couldn't keep my blood pressure up high enough with just water the first time and I have NO appetite during labour at all)
slippers or crocs
change of clothes for ride home
couple sleepers and onesies for baby
receiving blanket and a few diapers
toiletries (tooth brush, paste, shampoo, soap)
