Re: So I know it's a little early, but...

We had a homebirth last time, and before that I was in the hopsital for 3 weeks for PPROM @ 31 weeks, and then 3 weeks after that in the NICU so that was like moving in lol. So it's been 4 years since I actually had a "packing" list. We were planning a homebirth this time but I don't think it's gonna work out soo I've been thinking about this. . .

For The Baby:
A Few Cute Recieving Blankets
1 Soft Snuggly Blanket
Cloth Diapers + Large Wetbag
Going Home Outfit
Carseat will be installed of course

For Me:
Hard Candies to suck on during labor
Hair Ties
Make up
Hair Straightener
2-3 Pairs Comfy Pants
2 Nursing Bra's
3 Tshirts
1 Sweatshiet
Cloth Nursing Pads

For DH:
Extra Clothes

Camera Charger
Cell Phone
Cell phone charger

I think that's the list
Oh and my birth plan!!

Not much. I didn't use most of the stuff I brought last time.

Gowns and comfy clothes
Mama cloth
Cloth diapers, wipes, and wet bag
Going home outfit
Pacifiers since I hate those Soothie ones

That's probably it. We are planning to demand to leave asap after the birth so I'm not planning on staying over night (provided everything goes well).

Re: So I know it's a little early, but...

I've got a pretty good sized list going right now. We live a good hour from the center so running home to get things is out of the question. Even though we're only going to be there for a short while after the birth, I'd rather over pack than be under prepared.
