Re: When to pack the "Go Bag?"
I had the basics packed up already when I was called in to be induced at 6pm on Monday night with DD. I was 41+ weeks though. But I don't have a lot of clothes that I don't wear on a regular basis.. especially undies by the end of pregnancy so I had to pack the clothes/hair brush etc. in the half hour that we had before going to the hospital, had a 10 minute shower and that was it.
I am considering buying a robe/loungewear etc. specifically for the hospital and some hair ties/bobby pins. Basic makeup to replace the older stuff in my current makeup bag (mascara, lip gloss etc) since I forgot it all last time and my only two hair ties broke. Travel shampoos/soaps etc. Keeping the camera charged at all times... e-reader charged at all times. I still want to make some PP mama cloth but may end up getting at least one pack of sposie pads for the hospital. I'm 31 weeks. I guess I know I have a lot to add to my list to pick up at Walmart tomorrow!
