    Default What to pack in my hospital bags. Help!

    So I'm 39 weeks and have packed bubs and my hospital bags but I have this niggling feeling that I've forgotten something!! So I'm just wondering what my fellow bubhubbers have packed for their trip 😃
    Honestly nothing will be too silly

    When we went to antenatal classes the midwife advised tennis balls for massaging, skin to skin massage can rub the skin from your back (being so constant) tennis balls really work, feel good and don't hurt. (also if I end up in that much pain, they'll come in handy for throwing) hehe
