Hi friends! Officially 38 weeks this week so that means, baby time is anytime now! Ahh! It’s so crazy to think that any minute now we will become a family of 4 (5 including Chloe) how crazy is that?! I feel like I have waited so long for this moment and I am finally here. I definitely feel ready and very very heavy lol. I have to catch my breath every couple of steps, and now at night time I toss and turn to get comfortable with this big ol’ belly. But it has been a very great pregnancy just like my first time with Sofia.
Now that I’m in the waiting mode and quarantined, I have been nesting to the fullest! We have literally gotten the entire home ready which really helps us out once baby is here, because we will be so focused on adapting to our new lives together. The last thing I needed to be fully ready was my hospital bag, but you can definitely start to get ready anytime between 35-38 weeks just in case baby makes an early debut. So I have broken down exactly what I will need at the hospital to be there and once I leave home with baby.
Let’s start with the most important items to check in:
Weekender Bag/ Travel Tote
Toiletry Bag/ Essentials
glasses (if you wear contacts bring those too).
loose going home outfit
The hospital will also provide you with other essential items to help mama soothe (witch hazel pads, ice packs, mesh underwear), formula, diapers, hair brush, nose syringe for baby. These are just the items that I am taking that will make my stay a little more comfortable and to bring baby home. I know there’s always so many questions right before heading to the hospital and delivering for the first time, so I’m glad to share this with you! I hope this helps you out and eliminates worries 💗
