Happy Monday everyone! The final week of my pregnancy is FINALLY here and I could not be more excited than I am right now. I’m so ready! It’s so weird to think about our little family of 3 growing to a family of 4 but I’m really looking forward to seeing Aria as a big sister and experiencing twice the love. I’ve been nesting like crazy and we got everything checked off of our to-do list this weekend including new flowers on the front and back porch, filing in my office done, and our house super clean!
All of our hospital bags are packed and Aria’s bag is packed to stay with Grandpa & Grandma. It feel so good to be prepared! Below is a checklist of things that we included in our bags that would be super helpful to any mommas needing some help packing their bags.
One thing that I included that aren’t on the list is a postpartum girdle for recovery and you can see mine below from MAMA Strut. With my last pregnancy I didn’t know anything about postpartum recovery and didn’t do anything to help my body along the way. This time around I’m taking my recovery more seriously and I’m looking forward to what difference this will make for me. This girdle includes cold packs and back support which is going to be amazing.
I’m also excited to try out the “My Breast Friend” nursing pillow because I’ve heard such amazing things about it. Last time I used the boppy nursing pillow and it didn’t give me or Aria a ton of support.
Keep a lookout on instagram and here on the blog for baby boy this week or next! We are getting induced this weekend but maybe we will get lucky and meet him a little sooner. We are all ready to meet this little guy and Aria has a birthday gift to give him when she visits the hospital which I can’t wait to see. Y’all have a great week and feel free to pin the Hospital Bag Checklist below!
