I think the babies dropped

Gary thinks so too. I realized this last night before I went to bed. I just felt like they were all of a sudden lower. My tummy is definitely lower and I am feeling lots more downward pressure. Hmmm...Is this the beginning of the end??

Also, I woke up yesterday feeling very antsy. I was anxious and at loose ends. I wanted to DO something; organize something, clean something, anything!! There's not a lot I can do right now. So, I made a list of things I need to add to my hospital bag.

Here's my list:
*Cotton Nightgown
*Big stretchy undies
*Nursing bra
*Clothes to come home in
*Nursing Pads
*Lanolin Cream
*Extra bag for hospital goodies
*Phone Charger
*Lip Stuff and Vasoline
*Change for Vending Machines
*Bathroom stuff like shampoo, conditioner, etc.

For Babies
*Coming Home outfits
*socks, hats, and mittens
*nail clippers

Did I forget anything?? Let me know if there is anything I need to add.

We also got out the car seats to make sure they fit in our car. They do, which is a good thing. That means we can bring them home. Then there they sat, two little pink car seats, all ready for two little girls to be in them and it suddenly hit me. We are having two baby girls!! I got all excited.

Today, I am completely wiped out. My right hip has started hurting in the middle of the night. It doesn't matter which side I lay on, if I prop it on a pillow, not on a pillow, straighten it, not straighten it, hang it off the bed, nothing makes it stop hurting. The pain goes all the way down my leg through the bone to my knee. It doesn't hurt when I am walking or sitting, only when I lie down. Needless to say, I am not sleeping all that great only because of this.

Sigh...The energy spurt was nice while it lasted.

I hope they cook a little longer, but it sounds like it will be soon...

Don't forget cell phone battery, video camera, camera, and backk up chargers/cords.

How exciting! I can't tell if I've dropped because I've always carried low.

It looks like you covered everything. The only thing I can think of is maybe an iPod. My husband has his own backpack with snacks, a book and a change of clothes for himself.
