I think I was packed and ready at 30 ish weeks for my first born. I'm now 35 and haven't packed a thing.
When did or when will you ladies be packed?
In fact I haven't even gotten the car seat out of the box!

I haven't even purchased a car seat yet! I have been so bad at procrastinating!! I did just buy a crib yesterday, and it should be in within a week or so, maybe then it will click that I have a baby coming in less than 2 months!!

Hmm....I will probably START packing in a week or two, but just add things as I go. I don't expect to need a bag until after my due date!

I don't think I will pack a bag until a couple weeks before I'm due. I usually go very close to my due date, so I won't be in too big of a rush to pack stuff. I really should start locating all the baby things we've packed away around the house, though. I completely forgot about a car seat!! We got a brand new one with our last and I have absolutely no idea where it even is. I should get on that soon!

I have packed the babies items, 2 outfits for me, some lotion and that's about it. The hospital provides everything else that will be needed like pads and such. I will just have to throw in the laptop and cell phone charger.

I have everything packed for baby. Don't have clothes for me going home yet and there are a few things I can't packuntil last minute-like saline solution, glasses and camera. But if baby came today I would be ready.

I've made a packing list, but that's as far as I've gotten. I still need a lot of things on the list, and I'm waiting for my shower for most of it (shower isn't until 8/24) so I will probably get what I have on hand packed in the next week or so and have the rest packed by 8/26 (plan is to go shopping day after the shower for anything we didn't get that we'll need right away). I'll be just over 36 weeks at that point, hopefully that'll be soon enough!

I went ahead and packed baby's bag today. Just going home outfit, an extra onesie, socks, mittens, a cute hat and a pink blanket. The hospital provides diapers. I threw in some sensitive wipes but the hospital frowns upon wipes.
I still need to buy myself some granny panties and pads. I don't like the hospital kind. I want to be ready by 36 weeks just in case.

I would suggest bringing at least 1 back up outfit for baby-I had an outfit for DD that was the one I wanted pictures taken in and the nurses were checking her and changing her and for some reason the nurse was taking forever to put the diaper back on her so the baby ended up peeing all over the outfit. I was so irritated. So yeah, I would plan on having extra tee shirts especially because they do pee and spit up and can dirty a couple outfits in no time!!

The hospital I deliver at makes you leave them in the clothes they provide until right before its time to go home. But I did throw an extra onesie in there!

I'll pack a "in case of transfer" bag at 36 weeks when my midwife drops off the birth supplies. I'm 99% sure this baby isn't coming until at least 41 weeks, but better safe than sorry! (And if I should, for some random reason, go before 37 weeks it would be straight to the hospital for me, making that bag super necessary...)

I packed my bag with DS at 35 weeks...right after my dr. told me I was in early labour....this baby is likely coming early as well so I started packing my bag and the baby's bag this week (34 weeks). I just need to throw in stuff like toothbrush, phone charger etc.

I dont need to pack a bag for the baby, the hospital here provides everything as well as a packed bag to take home with.(filled with samples of everything I will need to take care of him) I just will have hubby bring 2 outfits with him when I check out for the baby. As for myself.... almost 32 weeks and I know what I want in the bag, I just haven't packed it yet. I am doing well so far and haven't had any problems, so figure I can wait till 37ish weeks to pack it. My next appointment is a 32 weeks so we will see how things are going from there.

I haven't even finished shopping yet haha!! I will probably pack my bag around 35 weeks only because two of my babies came in the 36th week (not gonna lie - I am kinda hoping the same for this one lol).

I haven't even thought about it yet. I probably should. I don't know that I'll need to pack a ton of stuff (I'm delivering at a birth center, not a hospital, so I shouldn't be there for very long). Maybe I'll make a list this weekend.
