We're very fortunate that Justin's company is so amazing because he has been able to work from home and help me actually stick to my bedrest. It's crazy that I have to rely on someone to make my meals and basically do everything around the house -- I'm not used to this! He's been incredible though...as always!
Today I made a list of things that I need packed for the ever important "hospital bag." I've checked out a few websites that offer suggestions on what to bring, but the problem is that those lists are very extensive! Do I really need a back massager, a blow-up neck pillow and a roll of toilet paper from my own home? I doubt it. So, just in case anybody cares, here's a list of what I intend on bringing. I'm sure I'm missing things, but I'll figure it out as I pack...
socks, slippers, underwear, pads and a robe
pillow (I'll keep it in the car until I need it)
rubber bands & hair clips
chapstick, shampoo, conditioner, face wash, moisturizer, body lotion, deodorant
toothbrush & toothpaste
a towel & washcloth -- supposedly the ones provided by the hospital aren't up to snuff...
camera, video camera & charger
laptop -- I actually need to see if the hospital has wifi...
something comfy to go home
for the babies
going home outfits
receiving blankets -- I know the hospital provides some, but I like my cute ones!
car seats (obviously)
I'd love to hear suggestions from other moms & moms-to-be on what to bring or not to bring!
