Sorry guys but does anyone have the link to the post a while ago where people posted their lists of what they needed for babs and for hospital? I cant seem to find it and need to get my ass in gear and get things organised.

Keep forgetting to post this - part of my experience of labour and might be a useful tip to others. My feet swelled up and couldn't fit into any shoes when I was going home. Maybe have some sort of flip flops and quite open shoes ready for your trip in case it happens to you. I asked the midwife in the hospital and she said it was from the labour!!!!! my legs looked like tree trunks
