You'll definitely want to pack up comfy gowns ( much nicer than wearing theirs and easier for a sore body than jammies) you're going to want socks or slippers, comfy clothes to wear home, nursing bras or tight sports bras (depending on breast feeding), anything special you want during labor( camera for sure) toiletries, and babies clothes. The hospital supplies diapers wipes and bottles. Those are the basics. Lol overwhelming I know. I don't think I have ever remembered everything and this is my 5th. :)
Bring larger clothing just in case you end up with a c-section. I wasn't planning on one with our first and the pants I had rested right on my cut. So knowing now with my second it was planned I brought sweatpants that were bigger so they went above the cut and I will this time also. But, bring maxi pads cause the hospitals are huge & not very comfortable.
