    I have 2 smallish ones. One for labour and one for after. After 2 labours and never being able to find anything i opted for 2 this time.

    I was wondering the same thing... I think I'm gonna use one of my suitcase, the square ones with a long handle... cos my back pack is really small.

    These days I'm really feeling the urge to have everything ready although there should still be ages to go... :think:

    How many days do they keep you in hospital if everything is normal?

    I've got to stay in 24 hours if there are no complications, as it's my first baby. I think you can stay only 6 if it's not your first. They made me sign my life away at my booking appointment at 11 weeks. I hate hospitals! Am really hoping I don't need to stay longer.
