With my first I packed at 38 weeks, and spent a lot of time figuring out what to bring, and didn't need half of it. With my second, I packed at 39 weeks at 3 am after I had a few contractions (she was born before 9am). Still packed too much stuff! IMHO you don't need much for the hospital. A few outfits for babe and a few outfits for you. Much more than that is just extra stuff to keep track of!

Re: When do you pack your bag?

Um, I packed the baby bag at 35ish weeks when I had everything ready. Then threw more diapers in because I bought more cute ones. I packed my own bag once contractions started getting closer together. I knew I didn't need much for myself, and knew what to pack for DH too. Gave me something to do while contractions were 8 minutes apart.

Packed around 37 weeks. Car seat was professionally installed around 35 weeks. It was my first and I loved seeing it in the car .

I packed my stuff in labour when I delivered at the hospital. I need the stuff I'd pack! At home, never bothered.
The carseat was ready to go around 37 weeks.

Re: When do you pack your bag?

I can't remember when I packed stuff last time, or what I packed. Now I'm 36 weeks with twins, thinking about getting some stuff together soon for the hospital, LOL. I installed the carseats a couple weeks back to make sure they'll fit in our car along with DD's seat. I'll probably get around to adjusting the straps this week, but won't install them in the car until they are here.

Around week 35 and ended up going a day before due date, although it was my original due date (it changed three times). I overpacked but used most of the stuff anyway.

With my son I packed the day before my scheduled c-section. The carseat was installed a bit before that though. I think we had it in by 36 weeks.

This one I will likely pack in the week of my scheduled c-section. My mom will be coming up to help with ds and will likely be here the night before, so I want to be done with everyone's packing by then. Ds will probably spend a couple of nights with grandma and grandpa in a hotel near where I am delivering.
