Getting ready for my new baby!

I'm on my eighth week of pregnancy and I've been experiencing contractions. These are uncomfortable but not painful tightening of the uterus. My obstetrician called it "practice contractions" or the so-called braxton hicks contractions. They are non-rhythmic and happens very unpredictably but they ease up easily. Mostly, they happen when my baby is getting so active inside my tummy or when my bladder is full. I got so worried at first because I'm afraid that I might have a pre-term labor but my doctor gave me some medications and advised me to just lay down and rest each time I'm having these contractions. But she said that if my contractions does not alleviate after I rested I should call her at once.

I'm also getting my stuff and my baby's stuff ready. This is the 4th time I'm giving birth but I'm still nervous yet exited as I was during my first. I already started with the things I have to pack and I'm almost set. Here are the things on my list. Did I miss any?
