Packing hospital bags
Since I only have a couple weeks to go, I have finally finished packing my hospital bags. I really debated over what to bring and also what I would wear after I came home. I am so big right now and I know that I will come home being big as well. I remember with Evelyn having the expectation that I would leave the hospital fitting into my size small vs pink sweat pants. Well, I guess I did fit but um, they were tight to say the least. This time I am being more realistic.
I brought Evelyn home in February so, it was still cold and I wore mainly vs pink sweat pants and tshirts and long sleeve t's for a couple of months. This time it will be hot and I plan on really giving nursing a go so I needed to find clothing that would work. I placed an order from Forever 21 and just received everything this weekend.
I decided to get some loose tank tops and some cotton capri pants for after the baby is born. I bought a size up, Medium, so hopefully they fit and I feel dressed but still comfortable during the day. For the hospital I am bringing 2 night shirts that button up. I just got these at Target. I bought these in a size small. They actually fit over my belly now so, they should work after the baby is born. I have other things packed like, nursing bra's, my new diy nursing tank and comfortable bottoms.
I am also bringing with me my belly band and also a postpartum support band. I don't think the support band will fit but, I figured it was small so I could throw it in.
For the little guy, I am packing 2 newborn outfits and 2, 3 month outfits. He should fit into the newborn ones but, just in case I will bring the 3 month outfits.
I will also bring all my toiletries and Mike will be responsible for the phone chargers and all of the technology
I am going to be cloth diapering when I get home but, I don't plan on doing that in the hospital. Once all of the diapers arrive and I have them washed and ready to go, I will take some pictures and explain how I plan to cloth diaper a newborn.
Well, I think that is all for now. I hope I am not forgetting anything but, if I am Mike can always come home and something for me. Hopefully I am only in the hospital for a day or 2. I was only there for 24 hours with Evelyn so if all goes well with this second delivery I should be able to go home quickly again.
