Hospital Bag

I hear about packing bags for the hospital... But what do you put in it, and when should you get it ready? Forgive my stupid question, but this is my first pregnancy and everything is so new to me.

Start with the basic toiletries, like when you go away on vacation (shampoo, hair supplies, etc.). You may also want to take something to suck on (hard candy) and things to read. Definitely a robe and your own gown, if you'd like. Underwear, because you'll need them since you'll be wearing pads (almost like payback for having gone so long without a period). Some snacks are good. Baby's coming home outfit and your coming home outfit, which should still be a maternity outfit. Anything else you'd like to keep you company and maybe a camera. At least that's a start. Others may have additional suggestions. Oh, and your own soap is good.
