31 Weeks: Packin’ My Bags

I know it is early..but I am so excited and in high gear of nesting so I am packing the hospital bag this weekend. BUT I am not sure what to include.  So could you please help me?

I know I need something to wear home from the hospital, a camera with battery charger, clothes for Jason, a computer (so I can watch the Alabama game if need be) maybe a book..Ha! I am reading the entire Twilight series..every time I see Bella and Edward now I will think of  my pregnancy with Skittles..an outfit for Skittles, car seat. WHAT ELSE?

Some one just told me not to worry about diapers and blankets because the hospital is well stocked. Is that true? Can I sneak food in since I know they starve you? Should I bring DVDs? I just feel like it’s going to be a lot of hurry up and wait.

Here is the latest prego pic.

That was last weekend at Christy’s shower.  I’m sure we’ll have another one for you next week because this weekend the boys’ family is throwing us one.  Remember. We married brothers during a double ceremony and now we are due the same week (a day apart).

Oh! And Christy will be at the virtual shower coming up on August 25th.  You have to log on and check it out. Not only are we helping raise money for the March of Dimes, Practical Mommy and Zen Mommy came up with this great way for Christy and I to be in the delivery for each other’s birth without us physically being there.

Christy and I are getting Holding Hands bracelets and then exchanging beads for them.  Each bead represents a special woman in your life.

Think of it as a ring of girl power around your wrist. You can get one during the virtual shower and add different beads, too! And again, it helps the March of Dimes. The link you need for  all the info on the “Mom is Born” virtual shower is below.

Don’t forget to tell me what to pack  in my hospital bag!  I’ll be checking your suggestions this weekend. Thanks!
