mariwithani:  Just to ease your mind:  when my first son was born, I was admitted the day I was starting to make a list to pack my bag (32+5), and so I didn’t have anything but my purse.  My SO at the time went and got movies, a change of clothes for my to go home in, and that was it.

Did I wish I had a bag?  Sort of– but I made it just fine with basically nothing.  I wore a hospital gown the whole time I was there, they gave me socks and food and beverage.

SO got me movies because I still had to stay in the hospital– and baby couldn’t room in with me because he was in NICU.  

Obvioulsy you’re going to pack a bag (as I plan to do with THIS baby)– but you’re so busy and there’s so much going on that you’ll be fine even if forget something or pack super light!!

MrsEME:  well that was an eye opener for me because I’m 32+2 today!  I can’t imagine how you must have felt being admitted at 32+5 to have your baby. I’m so glad everything turned out well. Thanks for putting that into perspective for me, I will definitely stress less over packing the perfect hospital bag 🙂
