What's in My Hospital Bag: The Second Time


Having been rushed to an induction last minute during my first pregnancy, I had to rush getting my hospital bag together. I forgot so many things but thankfully, had most of what I needed already packed from a few weeks prior. This time around, I'm not taking any chances! I've got a little over a week left and have everything but my baby! 

I love seeing what other mama's bring with them to the hospital. Everyone brings just about the same things but sometimes, you'll see something different! That's why I wanted to share my picks for myself and baby. It's possible that I overpacked a bit but I'd rather have too much versus sending my hubby to the store to grab things last minute. I don't feel like this needs much explanation to why I'm bringing what I am so everything is in list form. Here's what is in my hospital bag!

A few comfortable outfits
Flip-flops for the shower/bathroom
Slippers

That's pretty much it! I didn't picture everything but you get the overall idea. A few things I am packing that I didn't last time are our camera (I know, I know!), shorts and towels. Just based off of our first experience, I think having those things will be really nice. Especially the camera. How did I forget that?!

Can't believe I'll be using all of this stuff in less than two weeks!! It just blows my mind that we are that close to meeting little sister. I can hardly wait!
