What's in My Hospital Bag

Updated: Aug 3, 2023

Mayyy have a slight obsession with researching what goes in a hospital bag! You would think I should have a good idea, since this is my second time. But there were things we forgot (Jeremy forgot underwear!!) or didn't have because Royce came a month early. Our sweet parents were able to easily bring us whatever we needed but due to covid, no visitors are allowed. I want to be extra prepared: why I'm packing 2 months early.

I've broken down my hospital bag into quite a few bags. Y'all are going to think I've packed for a week...

What I learned from my first birth:

  • During labor, nurses wont let you eat anything solid while you're in the hospital (due to an emergency C-section). Liquids are your friends here and luckily I find few things more soothing than sipping on broth, kinda joking and kinda serious.

  • I had forgotten extra pony tail holders my first round. I always have a pony tail holder on my wrist, but it happened to be the one they stuck the IV in so I couldn't get it off. My mom showed up with one, saving me, but can't make that mistake this time.

  • Highly recommend an eye sleep mask. I labored all night and the room was way to bright for me to actually rest, even though I somehow did sleep the last hour of labor during transition.

  • Oh and there's wrestling belts on my list - no one else needs those. My husband grew up watching and loving WWE so it means something to him to have a men's and women's championship belt to raise to announce the gender of our baby.
