37 weeks and time to pack my hospital bag

Three weeks to go! Must get packing...

We reached 37 weeks pregnant on Wednesday so I guess it is time that I start thinking about what to pack in my hospital bag.

With M we packed it a few weeks earlier than now (yep for once in my life we were prepared, yet she was late) but this time I just have a feeling I will be overdue and I just haven't thought about my bag yet.

So, what should we pack?

Last time I went with two bags, one for me and one for M, and I feel that this time I would prefer to just take the one back and pack minimally but at the same time I don't want to pack too little.

So these are my thoughts:

My bag

  • Pyjamas (x2)
  • Slippers
  • Maternity pads
  • Big pants
  • Change of clothing
  • Ipod
  • Phone
  • Charger
  • Book
  • Hospital notes
  • Toiletries
  • Flip flops

Button's bag

  • Sleepsuits (x5)
  • Vest (x5)
  • Nappies (15)
  • Cotton Wool
  • Blanket for car
  • Hat
  • Cardigan
  • Muslin (x2)
Now this is a lot less than I packed for M so I feel I am missing out on something very important but I just can't think what that might be.

When we got visitors we ended up getting lots of extra clothing and toys so I don't need to pack anything like that.

We will have the car seat in the car as well as the pram as it is a long walk from the car park to the ward.

What did you pack that I have missed from my list?
