Default Going to the hospital to give birth....

So what did y'all take to the hospital when you gave birth...or what did you pack for yourself and the baby? I already packed for the baby...and I packed
- 2 blankets
- 2 outfits
- 2 onsies
- 2 pairs of socks
- 2-3 burp cloths
- 2 receiving blankets
....should I add something to my babys diaper bag?

I haven't packed for myself b/c I don't know what to pack....I know the essentials like clothes and what not but did you take somthing extra for the labor that soothed you or a comfort item? If so what?

I took music I liked. When I was having my babies you still had your babies in an operating room. Scary!

my daughter took her favorite pillow and blanket - ones that I made for her and her own nightgown to be comfortable.
Socks are important. Your feet get real cold.

hahah lmao this brought back memories hahahah

for sure take socks and an extra blanket cause for some reason its fkn cold in there.. all you really need is 1 outfit for his / her pictures socks for the baby and a blanket the hospital gives you basicly everything. for yourself take something easy to put on and some slippers, tooth brush, hair brush and thats it really. your going to feel like the most beautifulest girl in the world once you give birth it hurts like a mutha fuker but its so worth it..
ohhh and take a walk man or ipod

the breathing doesnt work either ...

oh shampoo, soap and a wash cloth so you can take a shower before you go home your really gonna want to.. did i forget anything??

when i went to the hospital I didnt take shit just got up washed up and vamonos quick..

but my coach took everything for me she even gave me a massage that helps with oils and stuff.

take books you like to read

if you will be breastfeeding I recommend buying some lanolin lotion like this one http://www.lansinoh.com/index.php?sr...nts&pos=0,10,1
for you nipples. You'll love it.

if you have a laptop I recommend you take it because it can get a bit boring in there.

I've heard that your feet get cold..imma look for some warm socks. For myself im just gonna take the basics..no make up or anything like that. I don't think im gonna want to sit there and try to look pretty. I have heard that the hospital provides alot but I want to be prepared.

I can't wait to have my baby tho!! Im freaken excited, Im always getting the braxton hicks contractions but I can live I just want to get it over with so I can finally hold her.

But I have a friend, and her labor was only about 2 and a half hours.
