Post subject: Hospital bag done ... I think?
Well ladies I'm behind schedule but I've got my hospital bag finished now apart from the milk and bottles. I'm seeing my midwife on Thursday or Friday so will ask her what the policy is for that. But although I've ticked off everything I'm sure there's something that I've forgotten Question I just can't figure out for the life of me what it is though. Blonde moment alert! Laughing

Thanks hun. I was told not to worry about towells but i will pack some just incase and extra clothes. We only live 5 mins from hospital so anything extra hubby or my mum can grab anyway but obviously i would prefer to be prepared!!

I will pack pj bottoms as well - i live in most of mine at the moment so will pack nearer the time. and yes i have packed a roll on (forgot to add that Smile ) xx

shampoo and conditioner, i couldnt wait to get in the shower and wash my hair as i was so hot and sweaty, actually made me feel more normal Laughing

i would also put in some snack foods as i missed lunch after having sam, and all they managed to find me was some bread and butter and a couple of slices of ham!

If there is one thing I was so glad I packed it was snacks. Not because I managed to eat them in labour - but because the hospital food was SO [*@!#%*] that I ended up eating cake bars, biscuits and haribo gummy bears at 3am when feeding my son because dinner was so gross I couldn't even open the tray without gagging!

In the end MIL and hubby used to bring homemade chinese food to the ward - I was the envy of the place- even the midwives said it smelt and looked so much better than the hospital food! I was stuck there for 5 days - I'd have starved without it! Very Happy
