My Bags are Packed, I'm ready to go...

And not a moment too soon. I have 2 hours and 35 minutes before I have to check into the hospital. I really didn't start packing until this afternoon. What was I thinking?

The contents:

  • Baby girl attire- hats and headbands so she's looking all cute for her first photos! Those hospital hats are just so not cute...
  • Cute pajama top for me so I can change out of that ugly hospital gown, asap!
  • Socks and slippers
  • Shower stuff and toiletries for both Derek and me
  •  make-up and straightener (because yes, even though I will be giving birth tomorrow, I have every intention of doing my hair and making myself up because I will also be seeing my hubby for the first time since Christmas).
  • Coming home outfits for baby girl and me
  • Nursing supplies including tanks and cover- couldn't live without these!
  • Present for Jackson from the baby girl (Thomas the Train toy)
  • Derek's Valentine's present
  • Baby Book
  • Quiet activities for Jackson (stickers, colors, notebook, favorite book)
  • UNO- to play with Mom while we wait tonight and tomorrow for baby girl
  • Electronics: camera, video camera, card reader, cell phone charger
  • A duffel bag of Derek's stuff since he is coming straight to the hospital from the airport and is only traveling with a backpack. 
  • Lastly, a package of chocolate covered pretzels... for when they actually let me eat again.
And just for fun, here's a photo comparassion of me preggo with Jackson at 38 weeks, and me now at 39 weeks. (I didn't make this far with Jackson-- he was 9 days early).

After seeing this picture, maybe I can understand a little bit why Dad has given me the nickname, "basketball belly."
