Re: first time mom

Your own pillow will make you more comfortable.  You will need clothes for after the baby is born, but you will still look about 20 weeks pregnant, so something comfortable. If you are planning or hoping to breastfeed you will want a shirt that isn't too tight. 

Toiletries are necessary. Also, I would pack your list of baby names, the CD you want to listen to and the phone number list for everyone to call.  

You may want to take everything in the hospital with you  rather than leaving it in your car waiting to see if you get admitted. If you do get admitted there may not be time to send your husband to go and get it all.
