What Do I Pack In My Hospital Bag?

Are you pregnant and stressing over what you need to pack? First time mom or have you done this before and just completely drew a blank (I did with all three of mine!)? Then you’re in luck! Today I am sharing a list of what to pack in your hospital bag. Some of these items may not be applicable to you, and there may be things I have not added that you will pack.
