After a stay in hospital to monitor babies movements and a realisation that Thing 3 could be here in 2 weeks, I decided that it was time to back my hospital bag.
The first time I packed my hospital bag I had no idea what to pack, this is my third time and I have packed simply the essentials. Although using the same bag as I did with both girls, it is no where near as full.
I have come to the conclusion that anything extra I need can be brought in the next day by my husband and therefore I really only need to pack for 1 day and 1 night. I also now know that the hospital also provide a lot of things, such as nappies, cotton wool and maternity pads so not to worry too much about these.
When Thing 3 will choose to arrive is a little bit of an unknown. I have a scan at 36 weeks which could give me an induction date, or it could be decided to let nature take its own path. I have been told it is highly unlikely they will let me go over my due date. With all this I have decided to pack my hospital bag just to be ready
