That's my maternity bag, all packed and ready for the hospital!
I'm smarter this time round. When I had Connor, I knew I would have a room all to myself and so packed my stuff into my lovely expensive leather bags. Besides it was Jakarta and we were going to this super-duper posh private hospital so had to erm... keep up with my fellow Jakartans who always seem to out-posh me, even in a hospital. Who else on earth packs their stuff into LV bags for labour!
This time I know I may be in a public ward so I just picked Dear Hubby's golf weekend bag. This is what I packed:
Even roomier knickers
(All of the above were stolen from Dear Hubby. The beauty of having a very big-sized husband is that you can always fit into his clothes even at 40 weeks pregnant!)
Flip-flops for the bathroom, I don't like walking on shared bathroom floors... so icky!
Socks to keep my feet warm, I have very cold feet
Roomy dress for coming home in. I'm still hoping it will be a nice summer's day when we get discharged and bring Number Two home for the first time!
Slip on shoes
Toiletries for me
I also packed:
Clothes for Number Two
A swaddle blankie
A fleece blankie
Mitts, socks, a cotton hat
Nappies! Wipes! LOTS of wipes!
Face cloths and muslins
A Liverpool FC romper suit for coming home, the exact same one Connor wore coming home from the hospital
Last to go in will be some snack bars, a water bottle, my phone charger and iPad.
Fellow mummies, if I've missed anything out, let me know!
