My hospital bag is packed!


I am officially 38 weeks pregnant today and I am oh so ready to pop the wee Wiggle out because I feel so heavy and uncomfortable! And we are sooo excited to meet our little boy!

Yesterday, we came from the OBG and I was given my admitting papers and we discussed my birth plan. I also finally zipped up my maleta with my hospital things. We're ready to go!

Anyway, what's in my hospital bag? Well, being my second time to do this packing, it's a much more curated list of things to bring. I owe a lot to Manila Mommy's practical hospital bag checklist. It's sooo comprehensive! I really brought everything on her list when I gave birth to Vito. But with Wiggle, I'll only bring these:

FOR BABY:
1 pack newborn disposable diapers
3 pairs of mittens
3 pairs of pants
3 kimonos with snap closures
3 bonnets
3 pairs of socks
3 gauze diapers
1 body wash
1 baby towel
1 receiving blanket

FOR ME:
1 pack adult diapers
2 smock dresses
1 pair slippers
1 maxi dress
1 maternity binder
1 nursing cover
toiletries kit (hairbrush, Betadine feminine wash, facial wash, moisturizer)
kikay kit (concealer, face powder, lip balm, lipstick, eyebrow powder, perfume)
contact lenses container and fluid

OTHERS:
PhilHealth Form 1
PhilHealth history of contribution
hand sanitizers
mints
birth plan
phone charger

Yep, looks like a long list but those all actually fit in a small weekender bag. Vince packed his own bag so I don't know what's in there but it looks like it's full of recording equipment (a.k.a. camera and its various paraphernalia!) and entertainment gadgets.

We are soooo ready!

  1. Exciting times! :) I'll be praying for a safe delivery for you and the baby. Vito will miss his Mommy while you're in the hospital, but I can't wait to see photos of him with Wiggle soon!

    1. Yes! I love it there. It might be more expensive than the others but actually, if you compare naman the value for money, it's not that expensive pala! So it's sulit =)
