    Has anyone bought anything for their bag yet?

    When will you have yours ready by?

    Maybe we could share tips on things that are a good idea, and what is a waste of space?

    I havent thought about labour bag - Il still need to pack one even though Im planning homebirth...OH has a problem passing me something that sitting next to him so there'd be no hope if I asked him to grab everything I needed should I have to go to hospital!! Jeez - doesnt even bare thinking about!!

    Il wait and see whats in everyone else's bag I think....

    Make-up is going in though!

    I'm packing a scrunchie.

    I figure that I'll put my hair up so when I try and put my head back against a pillow or chair or whatever, it'll annoy me, and that'll take my mind off of any pain etc :D

    (I'm easily annoyed like that :rotfl: )

    I'm going to save organising the labour bag until after 30 odd weeks. It will give me something to do when I start getting impatient for baby to arrive.
    I won't be packing makeup, when I'm tired I don't care what I look like.

    collecting samples of toiletries is a really good idea. Lugging big bottles of stuff to teh shower in the hospital is a pain!

    I Can't wait to pack my hospital bag. I love organising and packing bag's, I alway's start week's before a holiday. I already have a bag, I got it from Avon a while back and haven't used it yet. I was TTC when I got it and thought it would be good for the hospital, how's that for planning ahead? :lol:
