Rtkirk- these hormones are ridiculous, aren't they? I get teary over the silliest things too! I ordered a book online the other day, it's a children's book called 'on the night you were born' and is all about how special a baby/child is, I want to read to bub when she arrives. The book hasn't arrived yet but whenever I read some of the words from the book online, I end up having a bit of a tear over it. It's such a sweet book and you ladies would probably love it too now that your much wanted bundles are close to arriving.
Thanks for the info Nirok and Veritas! I'll have to look into the hospital tours. I definitely know nappies are supplied, I've also been told that they give you a supply for the whole time you are in the hospital and continually restock it. Apparently once you leave the hospital, your supply has to be thrown out (due to hygiene reasons) so most ladies take the left over nappies home to use. I'm sure they give the other supplies too as my friend did say you only really need to take clothes with you for the baby, which is what your list says too Nirok.
