We are down to the last few days before baby arrives. And I feel pitifully under prepared for the main event. I am just now packing my hospital bag (after not being entirely sure what to include because I wasn't able to discern what the "must have" section and the "hospital provide" section were on the handout from said hospital), which seems strange since I think a lot of people get right on that once they hist month 9. Oops!
I have had to purchase some strange things in preparation for baby boy. Things that when you get pregnant you don't really think about. Like ginormous pads! The package of 10 is the same size as a package of 30 "normal" pads. Also, the pads for bras when you get leaky. I know I didn't really think about that until recently.

I'm actually really glad that there's all of this stuff out there to help us ladies after the babies are here and are bodies need recovering, I just didn't realize what it all was like. And now I have a bit better idea. Maybe in the States things are a little different, not sure. It sure would be funny to know the differences in postpartum care between the US and Japan... maybe not funny, but at least enlightening.
