Even though there are thousands of posts about what to pack in your hospital bags I thought I’d share with you what’s inside mine. I don’t really remember packing much last time and got away with just 1 bag but we ended up in hospital for a week so the OH ended up bringing in more stuff for me and baby. This time I’ve packed a bag with toiletries for me and baby in one bag and clothes for us both in another. When I went to my 36 week appointment with the midwife she asked if I had packed my bags and to be honest I didn’t, I’ve finally gotten myself organised and had them packed for about a week now. I really don’t seem to be in such a rush this time but I’m glad I’m finally organised.

I didn’t realise that I’ve got more things for the hospital than the baby, but do they really need so much stuff?? Since we don’t know how long we’ll be there for I suppose it’s better to take more than not enough. I think we’re just about ready now to be honest.
It’s just a waiting game now and I think this is the worst part for me because I know everyone wants to take time off work but they don’t want to take it off until I’ve had the baby. I’m just hoping he decides to make his appearance soon.
What did you pack in your hospital bags??
