Yes. Also if you'd like to look at someones journals all you have to do is click their name and a link will come up saying journal entries.
First off you need to get a good sized bag like a duffle bag. A lot of women use more than one bag but I find using one easier. Also 32 weeks is a great time to have your bag done.

You-(everything travel sized of course)
Body wash
Face wipes
Hair product or bands/clips
Undies(although the mesh ones the hospital provide are comfy)
To go outfit
Razor(for arm pits not your down stairs)
Camera/batteries/sd card/film
Money(for the vending machine amd if you pay for photos there some hospitals have photo companies take newborn photos)
Nursing bra/sports bra
Nipple pads
Insurance card
Charger(for phone)

Baby-(hospitals provide you with diapers and wipes so leave your supply at home, they also supply receiving blanket and beanies)
2 onesies or pjs
Photo outfit (if you want one most hospitals have a pgotogropher that will take photos and show you photo packages)
To go outfit
Carseat(make sure it is properly installed, you can get it checked at your local police or fire department)
Carseat cover(or you can use blanket)

Change of clothes
Snacks(We all know men get testy when they're hungry)

It sounds like a lot but its really not. And if you see things that you wont need then thats fine. I like to have enough just incase. I didnt pack enough for my first born and some hospitals have you stay 2 days for your first. My second i packed all of this and only stayed one night. I used pretty much everything

For my first I Google a list lol like the one above but honestly didn't use much of it. I found it easier to use the hospital gowns so this time I was planning on just the essentials like bathroom stuff and chargers other than babies stuff I wasn't going to pack as much.

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.
