Hope ya like it. Great list! The only idea I have for you is an app that you can use to track your contractions. I found a free one that was wonderful. It was as easy as hit the button at the start and hit it again at the end. It tracked each one and kept them all together in a list. It was easy to see their intensity, duration, and time in between.
My husband had clear info to tell the dr when we were heading to the hospital.
Good luck! Congratulations on your pregnancy, and pending bundle of joy! This is one of the most exciting times, I am now pregnant with 2 and your post gave me some great ideas for the next time around! I too was fearful of mastitis. If you are blessed with a lot of milk I was, my milk came in before I even left the hospital, which is unusual! I highly recommend pumping in between feedings. Nothing too long, even minutes to relieve the engorgment makes a big difference and will help prevent it.
I never got mastitis and breast feed for 11 months. So glad to know you like the Motherlove! I packed that too! So odd, but I had heard great things! I loved the post! Since Im not pregnant, the organization part of it was most helpful. Where did you get the big toiletry bag? I travel a lot for work and I am kinda obsessed. Wishing you a peaceful and easy labor. Bring your own pillowcase! Nothing annoyed me more during labor than the sound of the hospitals cheap pilllowcases rubbing. Plus they were hard and not comfy. I was so glad I brought my own. It was nice to have a comfort from home!
I recommend bringing an extension cord. You will have multiple things that need to charge and the plugs are alway too far away for me. Loved reading this one Katey! Love this post so much! Wishing you all the very best when your sweetpea comes! Xo Lauren. With my son, I totally forgot it at home and we had to put his footprints in it ourselves once we came home. When our daughter came last March, it was probably the first thing I packed. Enjoy this exciting time of your lives. Wishing you a quick and easy labor. So excited for you and Paul!
Xo Alison. Thank you for that comment! I had it packed and just completely forgot to add it to the list! I appreciate it! Love love love this post. Thank you for sharing and congrats from another momma-to-be! Great list!! No one will be mad you overpacked! We all just want you to enjoy the process and your little one!! That being said, I do get asked a lot if we have fans!! I have had a few families start bringing in the small portable ones for mom if she gets hot during labor most women do! I just thought that was really cleaver! Congrats on your soon to be new baby!
As a nurse I see first time moms pack waaaay too much, but your list seems pretty on point! Do not feel guilty about that one!!!! If not, no big deal. Just wanted to do that so my dad could if he wanted. I really enjoyed reading this post!

What deodorant do you use? Great info. Hi girl! It will work in your Tahoe! My mom has a Tahoe and she has the Nuna in her car. So curious on where your toiletry case is from, the biggest one with the smaller ones inside? This is exactly what I need for my hospital bag. Thanks so much! Hi Katey! I have had this post bookmarked for a while and now that I am 32 weeks, I am starting to get my hospital bag packed. Any help would be appreciated!! Congratulations on your little one!

I hope you have a wonderful delivery! Great post!!! So cute!! I recently did a post [beauty gift guide] linking to where to get them! Thank you! Hi Jenna! So I got him a new one so he could photograph his new baby! Just curious did you wear your own pajamas for delivery or the hospital gown? Did the pjs you picked get ruined? Hi Ally! I had my mom, my sister and my husband in the room for delivery! I found people were really understanding. My in-laws always said they could step out at any time, etc.
