Packing List for Labor & Delivery

Alright, the 30 week itch is on. Nest, prepare, clean, get as mentally ready as humanly possible (which is not ever really possible), nitpick on husband to fix those stupid things around the house that don't matter at all, freak out at how we're going to juggle it all (parents of twins, I commend you), etc.

I woke up today with a need to look at my hospital bag packing list. Here it is, with some revisions. {I didn't need nearly as much as I thought I did.}

  1. Eeeek! It's getting so close for you! I love the difference between what you packed for Olivia and what you are packing for baby boy. No winter stuff needed this time!

  2. Thank god, right? We had her bundled up so much, it took about an hour to get her ready. The list is pretty similar, I just took off a few things that I know I won't use...
