Ill pack soon, probably next week or so just to be safe. All my prego gfs seem to be going into labor early around me and it is kind of making me paranoid.

I hope this womb monster stays put at least until the end of may.

Last minute, most likely. I keep thinking about doing it ... I just haven't actually started yet.

I've unpacked the bag I plan to use as a hospital bag. I call that a step in the right direction. I probably won't pack it until the beginning of May though.

Honestly, I will probably wait until 36-37 weeks. Even then, it will only be partially packed with the things I don't use on a daily basis. I will make a list of toiletries and such to throw in before we head to the hospital. I plan to do the same for my kids overnight bags since they will be staying with my mom.

I'll probably partially pack it in the next few weeks (Before May) even though I've never gone into labor prior to 41 weeks.

I've started my bag, I bought travel size shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush and toothpaste. Bought some grandma underwear. Packed a pair of lose yoga pants. I need to buy a robe, nursing tank and bras. Will also be packing comfy pjs and a maxi dress. The rest I will probably pack on my way to hospital. Like makeup, IPad and chargers since I'm using that stuff still. Baby's bag will be packed after the baby shower when we get gifts and we finish buying whatever else she needs. Still gotta get her a going home outfit

I'm such a procrastinator. Plus everything I'd pack I'm still using...other than something to wear home from the hospital which will be a t-shirt and shorts. Baby's stuff will take 2 seconds to throw into a bag. So yeah, I'll wait and see how my last few appointments go before I start packing.

I dont think I will pack until 36-37 weeks. I will be making a list in the next few weeks though of everything I need and baby needs (and where that stuff is) and hang it in our closet. That way I can easily pack later or if DH has to pack he has a list already ready for him.

With DS I had planned induction so my bag was packed like the night before with my every day toiltries packed the night we went into the hospital.

This time I will prob pack a bag by at least 38wks (I cant see myself going earlier than that) since I will either be doing Vbac or if repeat c/s than im going to push to be at least 40wks - but just in case I might actually go early, the bag will be packed.

Probably last minute around 39 weeks. I'm only 29 weeks now so I've got lots of time
