Spent a good hour browsing around Target after work last night - picked up alcohol swabs (for umbilical cord), 1 nursing bra, 1 nursing tank, 2 shirts with buttons (for easier breastfeeding), and a bunch of misc. travel size toiletries. Then I spent an hour at home packing my hospital bag, and I'm almost done! Still need to get a birthing ball, but other than that I'm pretty much set.
Here is what I packed:
* toiletry bag
* extra pillow
* 1 yoga pant, 2 short sleeved shirts with buttons
* 1 underwear (assuming I will be wearing hospital ones mostly)
* 1 pair of socks
* going home outfit for baby + me
* change of clothes for Emiro
* (need to add birthing ball once I buy it)
To be added right before going to the hospital:
* camera + recharger
* iphone + recharger
* computer (rooms in hospital have wireless internet)
I'm pretty much banking on the fact that the hospital will be supplying everything else and my milk won't be in yet, so I think thats all I need? Fortunately we live 5 minutes from the hospital, so Emiro can always run home to get anything we need.
Also, Emiro and I bought a small changing table for the first floor (so we don't have to run upstairs to the nursery every time we need to change a poopy diaper). We went to IKEA and bought a basic changing table for $35..... Perfect for what we need (also bought a matching changing pad & pad covers). Its small and fits in a niche in the foyer. Still waiting on our changing table for upstairs (which is also where we will put all of the baby clothes) - hope it doesn't take TOO much longer!!!

I need to take a picture of the final product -- it came out really nice!
