I started packing my hospital bag about a month ago when I experienced some annoying and (somewhat) concerning preterm contractions. It’s not that I was thinking I’d go into labor that early but I needed, okay wanted, something to do that was productive since my doctor wanted me to relax a bit. In my two labor and delivery experiences I’ve gone early so for the control freak in me early preparations work in my favor.
What’s in my bag?
- Two nursing sports bra
- Two fashionable hospital gowns. One is from this adorable Etsy shop, Mod Mum. (not pictured)
- A few pairs of underwear; the hospital will have some super awesome postpartum underwear to go along with the gigantic pads for you to wear while you’re
