u may want to hold off a bit on the clothes packing cause u might change your mind on what will be comfortable till that time. I know I haven't packed yet and my TAH is on Aug 4th. I have thought about packing also though. Just ready to get it done!!!

I was packed for the most part about 2 wks before my surgery. I dont like the gowns at the castle, so I had an older 2 piece silky like pj set I was going to wear. I always have travel size toiletries, so I packed them right away too. The MP3 player & some magazines was the last to be packed. I wore sweats to and from the hospital. Good luck with your upcoming surgery.

I had my overnight bag out weeks before my date. It helped me mentally to know I was getting ready. Do what is comfortable for you.

Packing for the hospital

My date is August 3 and I have had a few things packed for a couple weeks. I bought antiseptic wipes, gas x, hair ties, pads and I know there are other things in there too but I can't remember right now. I put them all in a diaper bag I had laying around. My thought was if they are already in the bag, the little ones won't get into the stuff and lose it, forcing me to go buy more. I am waiting until a few days before my visit to put the clothing part in.

it's never to early to start packing! Or at least start a list. I confess to starting a month in advance. I also made a trip to the local discount store for travel size stuff (toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, etc). I used a gym bag to pack my stuff in.
