Eh, I get a list going a couple weeks before and really don't put it together until 39 weeks and didn't finish mine until I was leaving for the hospital

Oh Shoot...I meant to put something small together already. I never have before, but I think these twins are gonna surprise me one day when I'm least prepared...and I want to have something in my car when I go to my appointments just in case one of them ever turns into having to check into the hospital. Gotta get on that this weekend!

I'll probably just throw stuff into a bag before we go -- most of the stuff I will want to bring, I am currently wearing.

Babies bag is done and sitting atop of the car seat. That is the most important bag.

I like to have stuff in a bag by 34 weeks. I was totally unprepared with Elizabeth.

Yeah... I was SOOO not ready for DD2 that those few precious moments of throwing a bag together killed precious time we did NOT have. So, this time, I'm going to put the general stuff together at 36 weeks, since she came at 37 weeks, and then all the electronics I'll have together (since I do use them daily) for quick grab and go. OMG. That's only 5 weeks away!

Probably the first week of November. My baby shower is November 3rd and I have the following Monday and Tuesday off, so I think I will be in crazy nesting mode. I plan to wash all the newborn clothes and then put my bag together. I'm also planning to have DH put the car seat bases into our cars the night of the shower or the day after, just to be prepared.

Last minute. Usually when I'm told to go to the hospital or when labor starts. I already know what I'm bringing so throwing it in a bag takes minutes.

I'm thinking around 37 weeks or so. That sounds strange because I didn't even make it that long with DD. My ex had to go home and just get things that I "might" need. It worked out but definitely could have been better!

The day before my induction? lol Or if I go into labor first, I'll do it before leaving for the hospital.

I have a list going. Most of the stuff I take for myself are toiletries and stuff I use every day, so I don't want to pack it away. And the stuff I'll take for the baby is all together already, just needs to be put in the bag. I'll probably put the carseat base in my car a week or so before my induction, just in case.

Probably in about a month. That's when I go on maternity leave from work. I'll try and get stuff done during that time. I'm not good at sitting at home with nothing to do, I get antsy.
