What’s in my hospital bag

I packed my hospital bag and diaper bag at 35 weeks. My last two pregnancies, I delivered around the 40 week mark, so I decided not to pack too much earlier than that.

And voila, all ready to go. I set them by the front door so it’s easier to grab and go when the time arrives. Lol Hopefully sooner than later.
