I'm almost there and as early as now I'm preparing my bag to bring to the hospital. Although I haven't packed yet, but I'm already finalizing the things I'm going to bring to the hospital. Perhaps next week I'll start packing so that I'd be ready in case I'd go into labor early. Since, my baby is now in it's correct position, I don't have to worry about c-section. Thanks God.
I want to share to you my list of things to pack in case you might find it useful someday. ;)
For me (for labor and after giving birth)
1. Toiletries - Although some hospitals provide shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc., I still prefer to bring my own products.
2. Pocketbook - I was bored at the hospital once, so this time I'm making sure I'd pack something to occupy my idle time.
3. Food/Snacks - Just something to munch on after many hours of labor. I'd surely get hungry after that.
4. Sanitary/Maternity Pads - Well, you already know what's this for. I don't think the hospital here provides this. I'd better be prepared
5. Nursing Bra - I'm planning to breastfeed my baby, so I'd surely be needing this.
6. Digital Camera - Of course, this is one thing that will surely document the big event. This list will surely remind me to buy one as soon as possible.
7. Money - But not lots of it. Just in case, I need something.
8. Comfortable Clothes
9. Going Home Outfit
Fo My Baby
1. Clothes - Something comfortable she'd get into after she comes out.
2. Receiving Blanket - To keep her warm
3. Going Home Outfit
Have a look at how my baby looks like at 30 weeks...
How your baby's growing:
Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as she gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. Her eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after she's born, she'll keep her eyes closed for a good part of the day. When she does open them, she'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision — which means she can only make out objects a few inches from her face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)
