Same here! so glad we aren't planning to go to the hospital. And I've been sewing and knitting lots! Have to get R enough Longies since she just had a growth spurt, then I will be starting new baby knitting. I just finished sewing up my postpartum pads stash and want to sew some sleep sack for the new little one too.

I'm not worried about it yet. I don't think I will even pack that much. I always stay in the gown they gave you o wear anyways and I'm fine with the mesh panties but I might bring my own toiletries and maybe if I buy some postpartum cloth pads I will bring those, but I think I might just used the cloth ones for the first couple days in the hospital. I will be bringing cloth diapers fo sho! It's going to be simple and minimal the time.

Although, I may find me a good nursing pillow to bring but I dunno yet.

im all for cloth pads, but im not sure your hosp will be up for that only bcz when I had my kiddos, they looked at my pad(gross ) like every few hours to see the size clots and monitor the amount of blood I was losing. might be harder for them to judge on cloth?

I would think it would be easier to see on cloth because it can't soak in to all that gel stuff like on a disposable. But what do I know, I've never used a cloth pad before. With that said though, I don't think our hospital does that. I have given birth at two different ones (naval hosp) and neither of them checked my pads. I don't think my new one does either. All my family has given birth at this hosp and I don't think they were ever checked by a nurse. They did at the naval tell me that if I passed any clots bigger than like a dime or a quarter or something to let them know but they never checked them.

Re: Obsessing over my hospital bag

I so overpacked my bag last time around. I'll probably just take an extra change of clothes, my toothbrush, and my phone charger and call it done. No packing needed.
