You need a bag for you and one for the baby.

For baby its clothes , blankets, mittens, hats, socks and all that.  the hospital provides you with diapers , wipes, and formula for your stay.      

For you its clothes if you'd like for your stay and for your leave  , comfortable slippers, shoes, toothbrush & toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, brush, makeup if you'd like, breast pads, something for entertainment. Hope this helps.

Good luck! You could start packing the bag already if you'd like. Remember baby can come a little sooner and our delivery dates are only estimates also. I'm also 33 weeks. I have my bags ready to go.

Don't forget a charger for phone, a camera it you are not using your phone camera, chap stick, maybe face wipes/cleaner and a brush/comb if you think you'd use it, and hair tie. If nursing, maybe a special nursing pillow. I have a small inflatable one that I can inflate to my preferred firmness, and then it can be deflated so I can stick it in my bag. Others mentioned clothes. You won't need much. Underwear you don't mind getting ruined (just in case), very comfortable pants like pajama pants, nursing tank top or shirt along with an open-front, warmer top layer. (these help with nursing and if you get too warm or cold) Flip flops or socks with grips. Just remember the floors can be dirty. Baby should be provided with hat, diapers, blanket, etc. If you have a onesie and footed pajamas with the mitten cuffs that would be good. I prefer the pajamas with a zipper rather than all of the buttons since a zipper is a lot faster than buttons. The outfits with mitten cuffs help the baby not scratch up their face, and keep hands warm. If doing socks be sure they are snug or long so that they actually stay on. There is a product you could search for called sock-ons. Wishing you the best.

Honestly you don't need anything for yourself unless you want specific things like your own gown and toiletries. Hospital has all you really need. The only thing is clothes for you & baby to leave the hospital. If it's cold you will want a coat/warm clothes for baby for sure. Other than that, this is the last thing to worry about. I packed a whole bunch of stuff for my first baby and didn't even open the bag. Only the baby clothes I used.

In the baby diaper bag you do not need diapers or formula because the hospital is going to supply that for you..... Pack her a blanket the outfit you want her to leave the hospital in, outfit you want her to take pictures in, some mittens and socks and T-shirts and some sleepers of course.
