    I'd say leave the take out menus....

    Your not going to feel like cooking or preparing anything when you get back!!

    we have meals already frozen that just need microwaved, far quicker than a take away, plus depends on time of discharge if take away would be open

    Pack any last minute clothes for you? i have my favourite joggers ready to go in my hospital back, but i'll probably want to wear them before! And anything to add to hospital bag, like hair brush etc? i have a post it note on my hospital bag of what i need to put in when we're ready to go (this is what we did with maddi)

    i'm sure i packed energy sweets last time, and sweets for during gas and air when your month gets dry - didn't use them in the end, but thought energy sweets were a good idea. i can't eat in labour this time (previous section, so have to be ready for emcs again) but the sweets were great for afterwards :D
