The only thing I had to have was hot water and my husband! My labor was fast and hard and there was really no downtime for futzing with anything else. I wore one of those soft crossover sleep nursing bras in labor and definitely will do one again.
Attempting a VBAC in the hospital with this next one, and I need snacks and drinks in the labor bag too. I am sure I will bring everything I can possibly think of since I won't be home where everything is at my fingertips!
I needed my Hypnobabies tracks and my husband to rub my back for 4 hours straight I was freezing during labor so I spent a good part of it covered in a big fluffy blanket so I'm going to make sure that blanket is handy next time.
I WAY overpacked. The only thing I used were my footie slippers and then clothes to change into afterwards plus the camera. I was at the birth center 12 hours total and that includes labor. I brought small little soaps and shampoos that I thought I'd want, Nah! They asked if I wanted to bathe and I just said I was ready to go home.
My pillow! I have a down pillow that goes with me. Comfy for labor nice to fall back against after delivery and for that first night I put it by my side and make a "cradle" out of it so I don't have to panic if I accidentally fall asleep while nursing.
