What To Pack?

Obviously I've done this before but that was 6 years ago.. There are things I recall but I needed help putting together a list of things to pack in my hospital bag. Now that I've been given the OK on my c-section I can be more specific and pack for my recovery as opposed to a long labour. I know that I will be in hospital for a few days and potentially Lee will stay with me for at least one night so I have him to consider too. I trawled the forums and read so many checklists on so many pregnancy websites but this is my whittled down list of things I think I'll actually need.

In no particular order...

  • Mints/Gum
  • Windeez (or equivalent - trapped wind is a common complaint following a c-section)
  • Snacks
  • Support Bra
  • Breast Pads 
  • Maxi Pads
  • Tissues 
  • Toiletries & Makeup Bag (expect a whole other post designated to this)
  • Reading Material (magazines/books etc)
  • Laptop & Charger
  • Phone & Charger
  • Headphones
  • Camera, batteries and memory card
  • Change for vending machines/TV Card top ups.
  • Hair Brush/bands/clips etc
  • Dressing Gown
  • High Waisted Underwear
  • Baggy Clothes/Pyjamas
  • Warm Socks
  • Red Bull

I feel sure I'm forgetting things and of course this doesn't include what I'm taking for the baby but if you guys can think of anything else you'd suggest I take or you'd want there if you were me please leave me a comment below. I have a couple of weeks before the big day but weeks are like days now.
If you're interested in what Lee is taking for himself you can see his post here
