Babies come when they want, and you want to be ready to go at a moment’s notice! Even though I went into labor on my due date, I was still surprised. I’m so glad I had my “go bag” packed ahead of time.
Although, looking back now, I wish I would have packed it differently. Today, I’m going to share with you what I packed versus what I actually used. Hopefully this helps some of you soon-to-be-mamas out there as you get your bags ready for the big day!
I took a childbirth class. I read blog posts and all the information The Bump had to offer. And I was still unprepared for parts of my labor and delivery experience.

To help you pregnant mamas out there mentally prepare for your childbirth experience, I’ve decided to compile a list of things I wish I had known before walking into the hospital that life-changing morning.
My body was 100% not cooperating! So, I did ALL the self-inducing tricks I could think of. And something worked!
I don’t know about other women, but when I hit about 37 weeks, I was ready to get the baby out! I wasn’t even uncomfortable the way some women get towards the end. In fact, all the way up to my due date I was walking to and from work (about a mile each way)! I was just anxious to meet my baby and ready to start the next chapter.
