    Just going to pop in and say ural. Available at the chemist. It helps lessen the acidity (I think that's right) when you wee.

    All the best

    I second the Ural, and would also add Movicol to the list. When you're rather sore down there (and especially if you have stitches), the first couple of times going to the toilet can be a little daunting!

    Maybe also a sleeping mask if the light glow from equipment drives you mad. (Plus that way you can leave on a dim light to be able to easily check on bubs).

    How handy, bookmarking that list for sure I do wish I knew about the spray bottle trick after the first bub. I had scratches all inside me and peeing was agony every time :/

    On the peeing thing...lean as far forward as you possibly can or wee in the shower. Drink tonnes of water and it will also help with the pain.

    Ahhhh the topics we discuss after childbirth!

    Sorry to post again...just thought of one more.

    I didn't want to eat while in labour but you will need something to keep you going. Barely sugars, Rosey apples or jelly beans. But be prepared that you may never be able to eat them again so pick something you don't mind hating.

    Definetly Ural if you go natural. And definitely lots of change, about $50 worth for your stay, and a credit card for putting the TV on and buying phone credit if you are prepaid and likely to stay a few days.

    Pack ural whether you have natural or Caesar. It helps with the recovery.
