 Hello! We are getting so close to meeting baby Adrianna you guys! I'm excited and already prepped my hospital bag. I do feel more prepared this time around, I feel that I can truly pack what I will need. Specially knowing what to expect and experience during my stay at the hospital! This time we decided to take one travel suitcase for both George and I. To make it easy and not have a lot of bags for George to carry around lol. We also decided to the boppy pillow and a bag for Adrianna's stuff.

 We packed enough clothes and toiletries for 3 days and then some lol. I will be sharing what I packed for myself, George and baby Adrianna. We are not sure if George will be allowed to go in and out of the hospital due to Covid, so we want to make sure that we are fully prepared. 

Other than that, I'm nervous to give birth during this pandemic. It's very uncertain and I won't have the same support system I did the first time around. They are only allowing George to come in, thank God and no one else. The other part that is going to be the hardest for me is not having Alessandra coming to visit us. They are being extremely strict which I understand, but it's still not going to be easy not having her there. However, we plan to make the best of it and just soak up all the time we have with baby Adrianna. Now, let's jump into all the items I believe are a must to pack! I made it a list to make it easy for you all to go through. Hope this helps!
