Baby Sand's Going Home Outfit (and My Hospital Bag)

Guess what, Baby Sand?

Your diaper bag and suitcase are all packed and mamma has her hospital bag together--that means it's time to get this show on the road! Come on out!!

Hopefully he reads my blog..

Anyway, I wanted to share with you all Jr.'s going home outfit! You might be able to guess what it is but if you can't, I'll give you a hint..

Yep, Baby Sand will be wearing his little KU romper (that I surprised Brandon with) home from the hospital!
If you'd like to hear the story about when/how I found out I was pregnant, check out this post.
As you can tell, the romper is a little flimsy/not very wintery, so I also packed two fleece blankets, warm fleece socks and mittens, a hat, and a fleece coat so he doesn't get cold in the car. I should have all the bases covered!

I am also proud to announce that I finally have my hospital bag (well, suitcase..) all packed and ready! I was kind of slacking on it because we live less than 10 minutes away from the hospital but I figured I'd pack the necessities so Brandon doesn't have to keep going back and forth to grab clothes/toiletries/books for me. Here is a list of what is in my hospital bag (no picture though--it's nothing special):
  • Loose fitting athletic pants
  • Fleece pajama bottoms
  • Low cut shirts for easy access (coincidentally, they are both Colorado Rockies shirts)
  • Nursing bra
  • Nursing pads
  • "Hospital" underwear 
  • Two pairs of fleece socks
  • Travel size shampoo, conditioner, soap, face wash, and lotion
  • Overnight pads 
  • Breast pump & accessories
  • Towel
  • Leg pillow
  • Bitsy (just kidding.. but I wish) 
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Makeup
  • Hairbrush and headband
As you can see, I'm packing pretty minimal here because I can't justify taking three different bags of loot when I know I won't use it (some of those hospital bag suggestion sites suggest you take everything but the kitchen sink).

So yeah, we're all set to go! I have my 37 week checkup today so we'll see if I've made anymore progress or if we're still looking at a January 2nd due date.


  1. You are doing so well!!! Nice work! I love that video of you telling Brandon, I especially love your sniffle of happy tears at the end. So sweet. My bag is sort of ready to go, I never even considered bringing my pump! We live super close to the hospital too, so I am going minimal as well. I figure James will prob want to escape and shower at home if possible. Good luck, hoping for some progress for you!

  2. Aw! I loved the video! SO sweet!!!

  3. So excited for you!
    If you wind up having to be induced, make sure you take a book or smart phone or something. I didn't think I'd get bored, but that took forever! And you can always feel free to text me :D
