Wow. I'm honestly surprised at how many people waited to back their bag until they were in labor.

God bless!

This.
I always had mine packed by 30wks, but I also experience a lot of pre-term effacement with both kids, and early labor with DD, so I had to be ready. As far as I'm concerned, there are some things that are worth getting done early. I don't like to borrow trouble, but I do like to be prepared! The worst that could happen with packing it early is that you have to refresh some things, you know?

I kept meaning to! But I put it off. And a lot of stuff I was going to take I used or wore daily. So it just seemed bothersome. I'm a big procrastinator, though

Re: When to pack the "Go Bag?"

I had the basics packed up already when I was called in to be induced at 6pm on Monday night with DD. I was 41+ weeks though. But I don't have a lot of clothes that I don't wear on a regular basis.. especially undies by the end of pregnancy so I had to pack the clothes/hair brush etc. in the half hour that we had before going to the hospital, had a 10 minute shower and that was it.

I am considering buying a robe/loungewear etc. specifically for the hospital and some hair ties/bobby pins. Basic makeup to replace the older stuff in my current makeup bag (mascara, lip gloss etc) since I forgot it all last time and my only two hair ties broke. Travel shampoos/soaps etc. Keeping the camera charged at all times... e-reader charged at all times. I still want to make some PP mama cloth but may end up getting at least one pack of sposie pads for the hospital. I'm 31 weeks. I guess I know I have a lot to add to my list to pick up at Walmart tomorrow!
