What's Going in the Bag? "Hospital Edition"
Packing your bag at least 5 weeks prior to your due date is one of the best ways to get prepared for delivery. With that being said, your girl has thrown all caution to the wind and is just now beginning to pack. Whaaa?? The Guru not using her own advice?! I know, I know. Cut me a little slack, I'm still in shock, lol. Here are your must haves for your mommy bag!
Toiletry Bag/ What's inside: Tooth brush, Toothpaste, Floss, mouthwash, facial cleanser, moisturizer, lip balm, hand sanitizer and hypo-allergenic body cleanser.
Small bag with a list: This bag will be for your jewelry, if you wear any to the hospital. If you choose to, keep it minimal. The hospital is not responsible for anything missing or stolen. The list is to go inside of the bag and ensure your items are there (or on your person) before departure.
1-2 robes: you'll want to feel more comfortable during you stay and getting out of the open back night gown is a nice start!
Going home outfit and bag for arrival outfit.
Pillowcase (if you prefer to lay on silk)
Small packaged snacks
Brush, comb, hair ties and other needed hair products
Copy of insurance Card
Anything else you choose to add is icing on the cake!
We were originally going to create a mini nursery in our bedroom with sitting area space. .. flash forward, she's getting a whole room, lol. Funny, by this time, my other kids' rooms were already ready by now. It's amazing how exhausted you get with just the ideas in the thought phase. We are choosing to go with a neutral, soft and breezy feel with the nursery this go-around. Whites, creams, etc. I still haven't chosen a metal between silver or gold for hardware but I have a strong feeling it will be silver for the win. We chose an eclectic farmhouse crib to start with... This should be fun! I will be sharing step-by-step so stay tuned!
STILL 1 whole pound thus far! I was at 3 for a second. I was probably already fluffy prior... I guess. Ha!!
3rd Trimester Symptoms:
Dryness (hair and body)
What's still on the "to-do" list?
