{Prepping for the Bean} What's in the Hospital Bag for Mommy?

What should I pack in my "go" bag for the hospital?

Last month, I began researching the most recommended items to pack in my hospital bag or "the GO bag" as my husband calls it.  What I found was that most people seem to pack separate bags for mom, dad, and baby.

So, what's in my hospital bag?
