i have packed mine and made a spare bag with extra maternity pads, breast pads and nappies to keep in the car. mostly because last time i ran out of maternity pads and had to send DP to buy some.

Earplugs, some babies are real screamers and it's hell trying to get any sleep even if your little one is fast asleep.

Food for DP as well as you, don't want him to nip out for a sandwich and then miss anything! Pack of cards/magazine to distract you in between contractions
