Do you still pack a bag?
I know it's not overnight but I am do know I am going to have at least a 2 hour wait before the D&C since they are doing an u/s for first just to double check everything.

Even though I was 'seen' within an hour of my appointment, I still did a lot of waiting between being shuttled from various rooms (blood tests, ultrasound, etc). I was really glad I brought a book, especially when someone brought the most adorable 7mo baby ever into the waiting room... I needed to be distracted. : ( I was also glad I had my phone, so I could text my DH and let him know what was going on (they only brought him in when I was in recovery.)
I didn't really need anything else, but I kind of wish I had brought my own pads. I bled a lot after surgery and the pads provided for me just didn't do it, so then I had to sit around in bloody underwear while in recovery/getting discharged. Oh, and I know it's January so this is probably common sense, but I wore a sweater the entire time - doctor's offices are so cold!
Other than that, the most important thing to bring is someone for emotional support. I was surprised when women got 'dropped off' by their sig other; it made me feel better just knowing he was nearby, even if he couldn't technically be with me the whole time.
Don't forget you photo ID. I know that my hospital's policy is to turn people away from their scheduled surgery if they don't have proper ID on-hand. Otherwise, I didn't bring much along except for all of my completed paperwork (which my doctor and I worked on when we scheduled the D&C). I was also instructed to leave all jewlry at home and makeup wasn't allowed either.
