Re: when to pack bag for hospital?

I'd go ahead and pack. I was ready wayy too early for ds#1 (was induced at 38w6d)...i was just so excited With #2, I didn't want to pack too early...was planning to pack on monday...as tuesday was 39 wks & induction day....but i went into labor on sunday and packed while dh got ready to go. I was in denial, so I didn't pack much and they still had to bring stuff up to us (actually, i think it was for dh...as silly me fogot to pack for him while i was in labor, what was i thinking i had to drive us to the hospital too...while dh slept! but that's a whole other post...). We were only there for just over 24 hrs though and it wasn't that big of a deal.

Anyway, with a history of early labor, i'd pack

Re: when to pack bag for hospital?

Well with my first I packed it about 2 days before I actually went into labor....I was 3 weeks over due. I guess I should've packed sooner but never really had the urge.

With the second I packed the day I went in to get induced.

This time I haven't even thought about it (I am 26 weeks) so I guess that means I'll wait until the last minute again. I figure I can always send dh home to get what I want.

Re: when to pack bag for hospital?

for you, it seesm totally fine to pack one right now, LOL!
I personally won't pack one.
the only way I go to the hospital is for an emergency C/S, so Ill be put under general anasthesia, so dh will have plenty of time to come home and pack some stuff for me, LOL!
