in my hospital delivery bag

Can't believe there's only two weeks left till due date. And although I'm still not suffering from anything big disconveniencing me - just a few discomforts when trying to get in and out of bed and finding a good position to sleep in - we are getting quite excited about meeting our baby boy for the very first time.

Since it is said I can go into labor at any time now I decided to gather all my essentials and pack our hospital bags ahead of time, a few days ago. Just in case I need to go in unexpectedly.

Take a look at what I'm taking with me.

And now I'm curious to find out...
At how many weeks did you have your hospital delivery bag ready?
And as I do hope I haven't left out any essentials, please do let me know in the comments if you notice anything that has slipped my mind.
Did you for example bring anything else to make the environment more personal? Your own pillow and/or blanket?
Sports drinks or glucose snacks for during labour?
Extra bags for bringing all the goodies from the hospital and gifts from visitors home?
Cash for snacks?
A nursing pillow?
Please do tell me! :-)
