This morning I packed a bag for the hospital!
I think I kept putting it off thinking that I don't really need anything. I don't need to worry about baby clothes, diapers or anything else a newborn might need. When Rowan was born, I was in and out of the hospital the same day - so I just keep thinking of this time being the same. How much stuff could I really need?
Janelle and I went for lunch the other day, and in talking I realized there are still some things that I want to have with me. My bag is pretty sparse looking, but includes:
- book (wishful thinking?)
- phone charger
- hairbrush and elastic
- change of clothes
Right now I can't really think of too much else that I might need.
Maybe just some donut money for the Tim Horton's on the first floor.
Here's the quick run-down from my appointment with the midwife on Tuesday:
(which was 3 days after the check up I'd had on the weekend)
Baby dropped 1 cm from Saturday.
Went from 2 cm to 3 cm dilated
Cervix soft and starting to efface.
I've also had a few more symptoms that lead me to think things are really starting to change, so I thought it was time I get myself a little more organized.
