Here is my list of things I brought to the hospital. It was so fun to start packing. We started getting things together a few weeks before my due date and then gradually got all the things we needed ordered/purchased and packed.

About a week before my due date, I started to get nervous, excited, and a little anxious about the delivery. Did I have everything I needed ready to go and packed? In a way, packing was kind of soothing and relaxing for me. Plus, I am just someone who really enjoys getting ready for things. I was so excited to wear the soft, cozy robes I found at Target, and the grippy socks (which say ‘Be Calm’ on the toes). 🙂 I even ordered a new jar of peach body butter to match the robe I would be using for delivery.
