    And I'll bump it again... so many people ask this same question.... so let's keep going with the list. All you brand new Mums and soon-to-be-Mums, what's in your labour bag?

    A friend of mine refused to go to hospital without her dvd collection of "Buffy" LOL.

    Soft toilet paper was a must for me. Thank you cards and chocolates for the midwives (im a nurse and I know we appreciate chocolate from patients lol). A shaver, I didn't have time to shave before DD1 and was glad I could do it after (I always feel cleaner when I have shaved my legs and underarms don't know why). It was nice to have a shower, shave and wash my hair after feeling so grotty after I gave birth. I took cordial because I couldn't handle the taste of the Adelaide tap water. Bags to take gifts and dirty clothes home. I got my partner to take some gifts home with him every time he visited because we got so much lovely stuff.

    This is what will go in mine based on what I had in my bag with Izzy and things I wish I had!(and no I haven't packed yet - methinks it's a bit too early still! )

    Eye patch from an airline, and earplugs for sleeping! (gotta love shared rooms - these were GREAT!)
    I-Pod - not that I used it but it was nice to know it was there,
    Massage oil,
    a pashmina shawl (so if I felt like covering up I could without worrying about my IV line)
    copies of my birth plan,
    a HUGE print out of my birth affirmations to put up on the wall
    photos of Isabelle,
    Lucas Paw Paw lip balm,
    a tennis ball for massage
    nice pj's and slippers
    lansinoh
    maternity pads and Pidgeon ultraslim breast pads
    Um that's all I can think of for now! Thanks for the reminder that I need to do this some time in the next 7 weeks!
