I am currently 33 weeks pregnant with number two and feel like I have transitioned into full nesting mode! It’s a time during the third trimester where you feel a sudden urge to get things ready for the new arrival. As well as setting up all the newborn bits and bobs at home, one of the things you will also have to think about will be your hospital bag. It can seem like a daunting process – how do you know what you or the baby will need? So, to help, I have put together a list of what I will be packing in my bag this time round! I would recommend starting this process at around 32/33 weeks just in case you need to order anything. If you’re planning a home birth it is still worth getting all these things together, so you have it all to hand.
