Who has their bags packed?
What do you have in there for both you and the baby-babies?
I'm having my c-section on 10/18 (if I make it to then) and last one we were in the hospital for 5 days.
In Canada they provide you with nothing, so you end up packing a ton!

I'm due for a section on the 10th, so I'm hoping that I make it until then too. I have packed baby's bag, but not mine... should probably get on that!

I have the baby's bag packed so far, thats about it! lol For him I packed 3 sleepers, 2 outfits (so I can see what fits better for going home ) blankets, booties, socks, scratch mitten things, a hat, and a little travel case of wipes. I didn't pack diapers because they always supply those here, but they never have wipes just these hard weird towels you have to get wet lol

I have my bag mostly packed. I packed

-Shampoo,soap, toothbrush and paste, mouthwash, q-tips, hand sanitizer
-baby wipes for me while in labor if I want to wash my face off because of sweating or something
-2 extra hair ties just in case I loose or break one. I need a ponytail for labor, lol
-a going home outfit for me which consists of yoga pants and a floppy tee shirt
-a baggie of change and small bills for vending machines for DH

I still need to pack
-the camera and charger since I need to use it for my baby shower this weekend
-Her going home outfit, again because I want to leave my options open after my shower this weekend
-My spare phone charger since I still use it everyday at work
-A couple diapers just in case I need them on the way home and I forget to take the hosp ones

I have baby's bag packed with a couple sleepers, an outfit, bows, and some socks, plus our camera. Our hospital provides everything possible needed, including a halo sleep wrap, super cool. Anything left in the baby cart we can take home with us (ie diapers, wipes, thermometer, nose sucker, etc). We need to actually buy some diapers, and then I will pack up the diaper bag with her stuff too, but it will go with DS2.

I really need to pack up the boys soon, so they have a least one change of clothes and jammies packed. Everything else will wait until we are headed to the hospital, or DH will just run home and get it.

I decided to pack the boring parts of my bag early - pads, toiletries, wipes, breast pads, hair ties and bobby pins, granny panties, camera and batteries, etc etc. I am not packing the yoga pants / tank tops, going home outfit, or the baby's clothes just yet. I guess I could decide on the baby stuff now.. I just figured I'd decide based on the time of year/weather when we go in but it couldn't hurt to just get it done now. I don't want to take any of MY clothes out of commission until the day of!! I won't leave anything unpacked that I'd be too embarrassed if a friend had to come pick up last minute, know what i mean?

My bag is huge! I'm not planning on the hospital providing anything, that is if I end up in the hospital. I hope to use it at home by the bed, if not.

Here's what I have:

For me:
Nursing Bras
Nursing tops
Breast pads
nipple cream
A sweater
2 x night gowns (heard these are good for catheters after a c-section)
Slippers
Flip flops
Yoga pants x 2
Robe
Toiletries (toothbrush and paste, shampoo, soap, etc)
Medications I might want/need (Arnica, tylenol, Bach Flower Remedy)
Pads
Face clothes

Snacks for DH (fruit leather, granola bars, nut mix, apple sauce)

For baby:
3 x outfits
3 x hats
diapers
socks
mitts
3 x undershirts
Diaper cream
Olive oil (mw recommended to keep meconium from sticking to baby's bottom)
Wipes

I think that's it! Want to be prepared

Oh, and I'm keeping hair ties, cell phone, charger, camera, and camera charger all in my purse at all times.

Yup, I'm packed. Just one (big) bag for me and I threw a few things for the baby in there, but not much. Just a couple of blankets and a coming home outfit. Just gotta find the camera charger which is currently MIA!

I should throw together a bag for my son to take to his grandma's house so I'm not doing it last minute.

Since I'm having a home birth I don't have to pack a bag really but I do have to put all my birth stuff in a laundry basket and have it ready for midwife, but I'll probably have a small bag incase of a hospital transfer though.

I have nothing packed. I hope i'm not jinxing myself but I don't pack that until 36.5-37 weeks. Not that it's really that far away.

I think I will start packing a bag this week, with the stuff that I don't need to have on hand at home - travel sized toiletries, baby's clothes, etc. I will probably wait a week or two to pack the rest of it. I'm not OVERLY concerned with getting a bag packed, since my house is on the way to the hospital for both my parents and DH's, and is only a 10 minute drive. If I forget something, someone can grab it for me. Plus, DH is planning on coming home after baby is born to bring a blanket or something of baby's for our dog to sniff and get used to, so he can also grab something then if needed.
