Something saintly
You could bring a book on one of your favorite saints -- you never know, you might have time to read a few paragraphs between contractions, or your husband can read a few passages to you. Alternatively, you could bring a medal of your favorite saint to hang on to for dear life when things get a little more painful. These are great saints to accompany you through pregnancy and labor.
