I just spent $50 at the CVS because I had to have a new pair of flip flops to match my gownies at the hospital when I give birth. I also got another set of make-up and some travel size make-up brushes.
So let me get this straight….I’m 8 months pregnant and trying to prepare for labor and instead of worrying about things like pain and finishing my hypnobirthing book, I’m worrying about what I’m going to look like at the hospital.
I really think I’ve lost it. I’m not sure if this all part of “pregnancy brain” or maybe I’m sub-consciously focusing on the non-important to keep my mind off the really important, but I’ve got to stop being so materialistic.
Everything in my hospital bag is brand new….I have a brand new dress to come home in (for me), two new designer hospital gowns (yah– don’t ask. Saw it on Bethenny getting Married), two new nursing gowns, a new robe…the list goes on and it kind of makes me want to puke and yet I can’t help it. So, I should be done worrying about my bag, but no….I found a new thing to obsess over today…
Like a Belly Bandit. I know there is a lot of eye rolling going on right now, and I don’t blame you. It really is insane. And what is more crazy is that I read online somewhere that I should bring it to the hospital with me because I should start wearing it right away. And, so now you know what I’m getting at. I feel like my bag is not complete without it.
But it doesn’t end there. Oh, no! Cause my face may look flawless after I put on my makeup, my belly may be flatter, my outfit may be coordinating, but what about my hair??
Uh, huh. Do I need a travel hair dryer and mini straightener? Maybe…
Someone needs to come here and shake some sense into me. Otherwise, my hospital bag is going to look like this:
PS- Don’t think this bag only has my essentials. Tiny has 6 outfits, 3 hair/head accessories, 4 pairs of adorable Maryjane socks, 2 bibs, and 2 pairs of hand mittens packed. I’m just waiting on some receiving blankets….
