Time is flying by, and although we still don’t have a definite plan in place for when this little one will be coming along – its still a toss up between induction and seeing if I can go into labour by myself, but this will be decided at our next scan in 3 weeks time – I have finally gotten round to packing my hospital bag. After a few days of particularly painful Braxton Hicks, and both the boys coming at 37/38 weeks, its definitely given me a kick to get organised for when the time comes.
I’ve made a video explaining exactly what is in my bag, and you can find this below, but I also wanted to write a list with links where possible, to make it easy for you to find if you are packing your hospital bag.
I hope that this is helpful – and please let me know if I’ve forgotten anything!
