    I want to get mine packed in the next couple of weeks or so, but want to get all the baby stuff washed first but can't really do that til our furniture arrives so I can put it away nicely.

    That and the fact that I have NO idea what to pack as all the lists I have seen differ, Some say to pack barely anything and others say to pack loads.

    Confused!

    Mine is about medium sized but to be honest I could have done with it a bit bigger as the vanity case with my stuff won't go in it (but hey at least they match!) and It's pretty tightly packed so I'm worried about the stuff getting really creased. All the nightwear and towels and baby stuff is lovely and new and snuggly but my going home outfit is a maternity choice- I read somehwere that you should expect to still look 6 months pregnant :( :( :( :(

    (Does anyone know if that is absolutely true????????????????)

    Nicest item I had to put in was a disposable camers that a friend brought me in case I'd forget after all the nappies wipes and other essentials.

    Anyhows it's packed tight and full and sitting patiently ready to go-just like it's owner :)

    I got a very lightweight jersey type one from Tescos- It's really soft and folds up tiny and it was only something silly like £4.99.

    This is a great idea! everytime I take my camera with me I forget to charge the batteries!!! (---> I did so at my own wedding...I don't expect the birth of our baby to be any different!)
