What you need in your Pregnancy Bag

You are not going to want to be wearing a tight thong or your favorite lace underwear- trust me. Be prepared for spotting, urinating when sneezing, and sore breasts. Comfort is key.

Got this in the Bag

1.) Robe/sweater
Hospitals or wherever your birth may take place may be a bit chilly and your body temperature could swing from hot to cold.

2.) Maternity bras & underwear
You are not going to want to be wearing a tight thong or your favorite lace underwear- trust me. Be prepared for spotting, urinating when sneezing, and sore breasts. Comfort is key.

3.) Chapstick
The feeling of dry lips is irritating. Bring chapstick just in case to keep those lips moist.

4.) Phone charger
Pack an extra phone charger because everyone will be blowing up your phone wanting news, pictures, and making sure you are okay.

5.) Comfy clothes
Comfort, comfort, comfort. After pushing a baby out of your hoo-ha, you are going to need every bit of help feel comfortable. Loose and soft clothing will be your best friend.

6.) Magazines/books
Labor can take several hours and even days on bed rest. You will need some sort of entertainment and what better then Ladies Magazine?

7.) Pajamas
Cambodia loves pajamas because of the easy wear and cute patterns. Pack your favorite PJ’s to wear.

This is a moment you will want to cherish forever.

12.) Socks
Keep those toes warm.

13.) Snacks
Have some munchies to nibble on to quench any hunger (dried mango, peanuts, etc.).
