Nice comfortable clothes. Breast pads, outfits for at least three days in the hospital, some snacks,money,phone charger,camera,diapers and wipes the hospital does give you a few diapers tho, your hair things, long thick pads for after birth, comfortable underwear,your own pillow,breast feeding pillow, try not to pack things that you won't need for your stay there I found I packed a lot for my first that I didn't need and took less stuff for my second and now probably less when I have my third. I hope I helped you :)

Chap stick my lips were so dry during labor. Microwavable heating pad, it takes about a minute to heat up and last approximately 30-45 minutes. I had terrible back labor and it helped tremendously. Warm massages lotion, when you aren't using the heating pad a massage helps. I almost fell asleep with my husband rubbing my back. Gum when you have visitors you won't have to worry about dragon breath.
