What’s in my hospital bag?

I’ve been putting on hold packing my hospital bag for the longest time. Okay, probably exaggerated a little since I’ve just got the bag flown in from Amazon close to a month back, or about 3 weeks.

Third trimester, here we go!

So two days back we went to our gynae for the follow up and the checkup went well. Bean currently weighs 1.1kg out of the 9kg weight gained on me.
