I know this is super early but sometimes coming up with new things to discuss is hard

Have you thought about when you will pack yours?

Knowing me....probably when I go into labour haha With DD I had an idea what I wanted to take and had a bag out but nothing in it. My water broke on a Friday night and Saturday morning I packed my bag before going to the hospital in the evening

I had a bag packed around 36 weeks last time. And a list before that. IMO having a list is best because there were things like my exercise ball and toothbrush that I was actively using and did not want have packed away for weeks but then some stuff like baby clothes and blankets were good to have packed and ready. We also got the carseat base installed and ready to go when I hit 37 weeks.

I'll probably start making a list in the next month or so, but I probably won't pack my bag until I quit work in May. I'm way to OCD and organized to wait to do that at the last minute.

I will do this early this time. I have no idea what I was thinking last time. I had preterm at 26-27 weeks. The docs controlled it. Was going in for a check up a few days prior to 38 weeks. I had know that I had contractions all weekend. This was a Wednesday. For some reason I didn't pack. I was told to go from the doc appointment directly to labor and delivery. Had to call DH to pack the bag. Now that is not super smart on my part. This time I am packing at 36 weeks.

I will probably wait closer to 36 weeks. I usually make a list, pack what I don't need immediately, and save the list for the big day. I do the same for the kid's overnight bags to stay with grandma.

I will be packing it close to 35ish weeks. Mostly because I need to have a bag packed for each child for grandmas as well as one for me and baby and some stuff for Alex. I forgot a lot of stuff for Alex last time when he ended staying with me! So I have a lot of bags to get packed haha, and if I leave it to Alex we will be in big trouble.

No official bag or list yet. Last time it looked like we were stsying there for weeks we had so many bags lol!
My list will be something like this:
Robe
Tooth brush/tooth paste
Glasses
Soap
Make-up
Phone &charger
Laptop&charger
Camera
Video camera
Clothes for hospital & going home
Going home outfits for the twin (cross my fingers)
Nursing pillow
I will pack a bag around 30 weeks maybe earlier if I feel it's needed.

Prob early May which I think puts me at 34 weeks-ish. Heck, I may even start later next month if I run across things that will go in it that I don't need prior like baby clothes.

I've discovered that I don't need much.

Toothbrush/toothpaste
Change of clothes to leave in
Shampoo bar (which I can use as soap too)
Video camera and regular camera along with a small tripod
Phone/phone charger
Kindle

Last time I was only in the hospital for 1 night before I was begging the doctors to let me get home to my other kid, so hopefully that'll be the case this time!

I don't even know. Last time I wasn't expecting to go to the hospital so I went in with literally the maternity dress I threw on at the last minute. It's strange to me to plan a hospital birth. I'll probably pack a bag around 37 weeks and obsessively re-pack it when I'm in early labor since I don't want to go in too soon.
