Re: When to pack the "Go Bag?"

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!
This is what I did. I bought two nursing tanks and a pair of jammies specifically for my hospital bag. Travel sized toiletries/toothbrush, and one of our cell phone chargers.

I think all I needed to grab when it was time to go was my brush and the camera. I didn't even bother with make-up. I personally didn't care about that.

God bless!
