when do You pack the bag?

Just wondering how prepared you mamas are for birth.
I know somone who packs months in advance... but I am more of the last min packer.
with my last delivery being so fast and not having time to pack everything, I am thinking of having a bag handy a few weeks before.


When do you have your bags packed?

Re: when do You pack the bag?

I've never had to pack a bag of my own but I had to for my cousin. My advice would be to pack it close to 35 weeks. She went to the doctor for a check up at 35 weeks and ended up being admitted to the hospital the same day. She didn't have a bag with her and I had a time trying to go back to her pplace to get herr one together. She lived in a apartment complex and the nosy neighbors called the managers when they saw me going in and...a long story. So be prepared sooner than later.

I never did get to pack a bag with DD. I was sent to the hospital at 31 weeks, not expecting to deliver anytime soon... well turns out I did! So this time I'm probably going to pack around 30 weeks. That way DH can just grab the bags instead of what he "thinks" we need!

Re: when do You pack the bag?

well, i am 32 weeks and 3 days and plan on doing it sometime around 35 weeks just to be safe. I do have a list of everything i need and bought all of my mini toiletries. We are going out of town one last time though so i don't want to pack all the travel stuff and bags yet since i will need them for that trip!

Hopefully that is early enough! ha ha.

Re: when do You pack the bag?

3 days ago I went crazy nesting, packed mine, DHs, and the LO's, and insane back labor commenced that night Maybe there is something to this nesting thing! Everything is in the trunk (minus my pillow) and DH installed the car seat last night...
