Time to Pack the Hospital Bag

Everything is really starting to come together! We finished the nursery this week, bought a bunch of diapers, and finished our pre-baby shopping.

With twins, you are considered full term at 37 weeks.  Now that I am 33 weeks pregnant, it’s time to pack the hospital bag!

Our plan is still to deliver vaginally, but since twins are considered a “high-risk” birth, we will be delivering our girls in the operating room. There is still a chance that I may potentially be delivering by c-section, which means my stay in the hospital could be up to 4 days.

With this being my first pregnancy, my list of what to bring to the hospital consists of what friends have told me and lists I have found online, but I think I have the basics covered. I have been told to be careful not to over-pack!

Labor Gear

  • Hair Ties / Clips
  • iPad
  • iPhone/Chargers/Mini Speakers
  • Birthing Ball

Personal Items

  • Toothbrush/Toothpaste/Mouthwash
  • Hair Brush
  • Toiletries
  • Shampoo/Conditioner/Body Wash/Face Wash
  • Makeup
  • Facial Wipes
  • Chap Stick

Clothes

  • Maternity Gown
  • Nursing Bra
  • Slippers / Warm Socks
  • Flip Flops
  • Comfy Going Home Clothes
  • Going Home Outfit for Babies
  • Change of Clothes for Daddy

Other

  • 2 Car Seats
  • Birth Plan
  • Hospital Registration Forms
  • Insurance Card
  • Driver’s License
  • Snacks for Daddy

My questions to Mommys: Was there anything you packed and did not need? Anything you wished you brought with you?

Once the bag is packed, we are one step closer to holding our girls! I cannot believe how fast time is flying by!
