Hospital Bag


You say, Hospital Bag, like it’s a synonym for anxiety attack. Okay, so maybe it is and maybe it is. But it doesn’t NEED to be. Take it from my first go around. I was one of those. The OVERLY prepared type. Surprise you much?

My bag was packed a month in advance, Husby had his own checklist waiting beside the bed (you know… in case I was delusional during labor or something horrifyingly worse). And the car! Oh mercy! Packed to the brim like we were going on a cross country road trip!

It was actually quite comical and slightly ridiculous all at the same time. But we were newbies. Still are, kinda.

With less than 2 weeks away, last week’s stabbing pains had me freaking out just a smidge. Like…

Um, little buddy? You listening down there? We’re not ready quite yet, remember? My hair needs to be cut and colored. And then there’s the house that needs vacuuming at least another dozen times or so. Not to mention, you’re still nameless. Oh yeah. And the whole hospital bag. About that…

Take it or leave it (literally), I thought I’d give you a peek into what has transformed into my hospital essentials.

  • Oh good luck!! At least you will all be looking gorgeous while at the hospital! I can’t wait for news. It could be any day now!
    For number two I did not pack my bag. I was caught by surprise and hadn’t gotten it done. I ended up in the hospital with none of my things. I’m glad that won’t be you.
    Exciting times ahead for you. xxx

    Two weeks! Wow! You must be going through a world of emotions right about now.

    Love the Petit B and Lauren Paige outfits to take home. I swear I had the same in my hospital bag whe we went. Love IT!

  • Hahaha “not to mention, you’re still nameless”. Priceless, love it! I would be one of those OCD prepared types too Missy – it’s from Girl Guides, no? They instill it in us! Haha. I have a feeling my sister will be like this too in July, and it’s her first, so she will be 110%! She also married someone who’s big on prep too so I can only imagine what their car will look like! Best of luck, so excited to see the little one! xx

    Good luck! I was just thinking spring must be a great time to have a baby. With all of the flowers and trees blooming! I hope everything goes perfectly for you!
