Ok so I still have a few weeks left (well 8, if she's on time! DD1 was 12 days over!!)
But I want to get it sorted and out the way, but everytime I go to write a list of what to put in it my mind goes totally blank.

I took -
Button Down nightdress to give birth in (was an oversized shirt style one from primark)
Pair of joggers
Vest top
Flip flops
A towel
Shampoo/conditioner/shower gel
Maternity pads
Lip balm
A muslin (godsend when dp wet it with cold water and put on my forehead)
Big pants

Tablet and charger (was induced and in for almost 3 days in total)

2 x baby hats
2 x sleepsuits
2 x vests
5 x newborn nappies
1 pack unscented sensitive wipes

Can't remember what else was in there but that's what I remember using.

Maternity pads, breast pads, plenty of spare knickers (make sure they are cotton, comfy, and cut high up in event of c sec), I would get black pjs /trackies in case of leaks, bottle of water, a couple of snacks (like an oaty bar or similar), chewing gum, a hand fan would be a nice extra as the wards are very warm, comfy baggy tops and nightie, maternity bra or comfy bra of your choice, toothbrush and toothpaste, note pad and pen, slippers

For baby : a few vests, a few sleep suits, plenty of newborn nappies, wipes or cotton wool whichever you choose to use, a blanket, a hat, a couple of Muslins, ready to use formula if you're using(you can get a starter pack so you don't need bottles)

Some money for partner to get yourselves something from vending machine if needed, YOUR MATERINTY NOTES!!!!!, any other home comforts you might want eg your own pillow or sheets

Pp got the stuff I forgot, I took a cheap bar soap and a couple of cheap towels (incase they got covered in anythingblush) and as pp said primark is a great place to get cheap stuff that you don't mind getting ruined they do great big pants I bought them a few sizes bigger so they were extra comfy.

Thanks! Once we got on the ward last time DP went and got pizza and bought it into the was amazing!

I was induced but thankfully only in one. Night which I hated. My labour was quick so hoping this one will be in and out 😂😂

Oh excellent! I was induced, we had a pizza a couple of hours before they did it! Funny. How far along are you?

Ok so for you- snacks! The next morning waiting for my tea and toast that never came was painful!

I packed those sesame seed bars, naked bars and clementines! Delish. I wish I'd paid for a private room- mine was so noisy!!
