SLIPPERS!! both times I forgot them and wished I hadn't. and extra batteries for the camera.
I forgot shoes for in the shower (when I had AJ), and healthy snacks for the days there - fruit etc...but I also packed my own comfy shorts and nursing tanks so that I didn't have to wear hosp. gowns after the first 12 hours...I hate nightgowns so this was my comfy wear...plus it's easier to nurse with a nursing tank:) (I got a bunch of them from Target Gilligan & O'Malley - so great for night time and under stuff so your whole belly isn't hanging out when you nurse!!) I found that I didn't use any of the stuff I packed for labor focal points because it was easier to focus on John & for him to help me better. Oh, snacks for John/hubby during labor because they need to eat!
Not to sound gross-- BRING YOUR OWN PADS. Biggest mistake I made was not bringing my own with Samuel- ugh. Remember grandma underwear that you don't mind getting ruined. Bring something for Kyle to do because it can be long before that baby comes! Also, for yourself like Anna said, bring your own comfy nightgown. I wore shorts, but I would really recommend it. Don't forget the baby's first outfit! and CAMERA CAMERA CAMERA! If I think of anything else, I'll come back :-)
