So, I’m 37+1, but that doesn’t mean I’ve packed my bag yet….because I haven’t.
I did get started last night. I filled up my travel toiletry set and put it in the bagpack. So that’s something. I’ll be able to shower there. Here’s my list of what I plan to bring. Tell me what should be added or subtracted:
Toothbrush and toothpaste
Two night gowns good for nursing
Maternity dress to wear home
Slippers (I have these really great croc slippers that are fleece lined. So they’re water resistant and warm)
Undies x 4 (overkill probably, but I like to be prepared)
Two nursing bras
Phone and charger
Camera and charger
Chief’s tablet for the netflix watching in the event we’re there longer than I want to be
Carseat (obviously. It’s installed in the car already so that’s at least good)
Her going home kimono onsie, shoes, socks, and hat. Maybe scratch mittens?
My Kindle and charger
Snacks for Chief
I seriously want to bring at least one of my cats too. I wish there were a birthing suite around here that I could do that. I know that sounds insane, but I love them so much! And they’re so comforting! And I’ll miss them so much!
So anyway, Chief is being QUITE demanding and saying that I have to pack the bag TODAY because I’m making him nervous. Blah, blah, blah. This baby is never coming out. She seems far too cozy in there. I’m not worried. But I guess I’ll pack it today because he’s being a nervous nelly. Every twinge puts him into high alert. My pelvis basically always hurts now, and if I give an “oof” or anything he’s on me like white on rice. It’s very sweet, but I keep telling him not to get his hopes up. I think the real contractions will elicit far more than an “oof” out of me.
