Your camera, something to pull your hair back with during hard labor, a deck of cards to pass the time, your ipod if you have one, perhaps with different types of playlists (relaxing, upbeat, etc), some snacks for you and dh --- for dh while you are in labor, and for you afterwards. You will likely give birth in the night time and the "meal" they bring you afterwards is crap, change for the vending machines....

Another good thing we took both times is a list of people and numbers to call *in order of importance* to tell the good news. This way, you guys can make the most important calls right away and then get someone else to make the rest of them, or they can just wait.

Are you breastfeeding? If so, bring your bf'ing pillow if you have one, this way they can help you learn with your own pillow.

Even if you aren't going to breastfeed-I would suggest bringing nursing pads. I was a c section so I was still in the hospital when my milk came in and I had to send dh to the store for nursing pads-not a pretty sight!
Also-bring the kind of maxi pads you prefer. My hospital only had ones without adhesive and they were a pain to use. Having my own was a big plus!

They'll test your beastmilk? Interesting. They dont' do anything like that here.

I highly recommend it and "straight from the boob" is way easier than bottles-- BUT either way is great and you'll get the hang of it in no time!
