A Trip Inside My Maternity Bag

June 21, 2015
I am finally 36 weeks pregnant and getting ready to pop little Arya out to the world!

I have looked into so many references already about how I am going to organize my hospital bag when the big day comes but I just find the list so overwhelming that seems like I have to bring my entire bathroom and closet to the hospital.

So, I took the easy path and talked to a few relatives and friends who just gave birth and asked them the things that I will really need to bring at the hospital. It turns out I don't need to bring the entire house after all.

I pulled out my luggage and finally able to pack my things when it's go time.

Here's the official rookie mommy list for your final hospital bag:

  • 24 Pcs. Disposable Diapers
  • Cotton roll or balls
  • Alcohol 70% Isopropyl
  • Maternity pads
