What's in My Hospital Bag? • Mommy Monday

36 weeks now ladies! But for some reason, I keep telling people it's 26 or 46 weeks. Baby brain much?

Best part of this week: The itching is calming down, and we're 99% sure that it's an allergy. Also, two people let me skip ahead to the front of the line because of my massive belly. That sure was nice of them!

Worst part of this week: Painful, regular Braxton Hicks contractions.

I've finally packed my hospital bags, though apparently forgot to mention a few important things.




No worries though! It's all written down below, including the things that my hospital asked for - some of which I don't plan on bringing. Such a rebel!

No. But really. I use my hair dryer maybe once every two weeks. Why am I suddenly going to need one while I'm at the hospital? Why? (Maybe some of you wiser moms who've been through this have the answer - feel free to share in the comments!)




You may also notice that I didn't list the make up I'm bringing, but I've decided to put that in a separate post to go along with this video, for those of you who are interested. I know that not everybody thinks that makeup is a delivery/labor necessity. ;)

Update: The Q&A video that I promised is coming! I just have so many video ideas at the moment... :). I'll be filming that this week and hope to put it up right after delivery when I'll be feeling way too tired to film and edit. I'm still taking questions though, so feel free to ask whatever you'd like.
