What I packed in my HOSPITAL BAG (for me and baby boy)

what I packed in my hospital bag for me and baby boy, hospital bag checklist

The day I'll give birth to my baby boy is approaching. Actually it's going to happen in the next 2-3 days, lol. I have had my hospital bag packed (starring at me wide open) for two weeks or so, as my doctor said I should be prepared. And I was, we all thought baby would be here by now! But my boy feels quite comfortable inside, it's warm, he's kicking all day long, showing me his small yet strong legs and hands, well having real party in my belly.:D I guess we both have out-of-the-box rhythms, for example I'm up writing this post and it's past 4am, I couldn't sleep...lol 
Anyway I wanted to share some items I packed, both for me and baby. I saw some checklists online, but I mostly focused on a checklist my doctor gave me for the specific hospital where I'll stay 3 days. I got it all written down in my trusty agenda/planner which has so many lists and notes (it's also packed as for sure I'll need to write some new things). But let's get back to today's topic and the content of the hospital bag!

Dan kada ce moja beba doci na svet se priblizava. Zapravo dogodice se u naredna 2-3 dana, haha. Kofer za bolnicu je spremljen (zuri u mene svaki dan sirom otvoren) vec vise od dve nedelje, jer je moj doktor rekao da budem spremna. I jesam, svi smo mislili da ce beba vec uveliko biti sa nama. Ali maleckom je bas udobno unutra, toplo je, sutira po ceo dan, pokazuje mi mala ali jaka stopala i ruke, ma pravi zurku u mom stomaku!:D Izgleda da oboje imamo nas autentican ritam, evo sad je na primer 4 sata ujutru a ja budna i pisem ovaj post, probudila sam se, haha...
Elem, zelela sam da podelim listu stvari koje sam spakovala u kofer, za bebu i za mene. Pronasla sam bezbroj listi na internetu, ali sam se fokusirala na listu koju mi je moj doktor dao za bolnicu u kojoj cu biti tri dana. Sve sam zapisala u poverljivu agendu (i ona ide u kofer jer ce sigurno biti stvari koje treba zapamtiti tj. zapisati) koja ima bezbroj listi i beleski. Nego da mi predjemo na poentu danasnje teme i sadrzaj bolnicke torbe!

sta treba spakovati u torbu za porodiliste za mamu i dete, trudnicki saveti za porodjaj

I think I'll get back to this post (or actually write a new one) when I come home from the hospital. I'm curious to see which items I needed or not, what I should but didn't bring, what was useful/helpful... So stay tuned!;)

** Back from the hospital, and I'm glad to say that I almost used and needed everything I packed. The only things I didn't need were pads and hospital panties (they gave me at the hospital), socks (it was warm enough) and bras for sleeping (I wore nursing bra). Also I had no time to read the book or play sudoku, I preferred staring at my baby!:)

Mislim da cu se vratiti ovom postu (ili zapravo napisati novi) kada dodjem kuci iz bolnice. Radoznala sam da vidim koje stvari ce mi trebati a koje nece, sta sam trebala da ponesem a nisam, sta je bilo korisno…

** Izasli smo iz porodilista, i drago mi je da kazem da mi je skoro sve bilo potrebno od stvari koje sam spakovala. Jedino mi nisu trebali ulosci i bolnicke gacice (imali su na odeljenju), carape (bilo je zaista toplo) i brushalteri za spavanje (nosila sam brus za dojilje). Takodje nisam imala vremena da citam knjigu ili resavam sudoku, vise mi se svidelo da piljim u bebu!:)
