I'm 35 weeks and just packed the diaper bag because I have a feeling she will come before 40 weeks. I just packed it with everyday diaper bag things plus her coming home outfit.
I haven't packed mine and DH's bag yet, I probably will closer to time. For me I'm just bringing underwear, breast pads, some shorts to wear under the hospital gown after wards, hygiene products and then our lap top, camera, chargers, plus DH's clothes. We live not even 10 minutes from the hospital so we can always send someone to get us whatever we may forget.
The most important thing would probably be my phone or camera so I can get pictures of her ASAP.
Who has started packing for the hospital? If you haven't yet when do you plan to? I haven't and won't this time. They only keep you for 24 hours, so DH will grab me clean clothes before I'm discharged and my cell phone stays in my purse anyways. DH will grab the box with her outfit in it to bring the day we are discharged. During our hospital tour, they have a baby and mom kit that includes NB diapers, wipes, butt balm, and toiletries for mom.
What kind of bag are you using? Will baby have their own separate bag or will you just use one large one? n/a
What is the one thing in your bag (or that will be in your bag) that you think is most important for you to have during your hospital stay? n/a

I have packed the baby's bag. I have a photo outfit, coming home outfit, 2 blankets, 2 cloth diapers (using disposables until discharge), and some wipes. My bag is partially packed... I will finish it up by next Monday since I may not be allowed to go home after appt.

I am using seperate bags for me and baby. I am using her daddy diaper bag (we have 2 seperate ones :-))
I am using a small Ed Hardy duffel I got from a perfume purchase. Hubby is using a backpack.

The most important thing is my phone... I can not wait to post and send photos of our new bundle!!! Hubby says his most important thing is going to be fresh underwear...
Location: McDonough, GA by way of Charlotte, NC and my home NY!!!!
I have my list for myself and baby but have packed nothing will probabyl pack the end of July. If I can fit everything in 1 bag for myself and DH we will share but baby girl will have her own bag (I am sure I will over pack both bags)...I need to leave some room for the stuff I will get from the hospital for her though.
The most important things wil be my camera and my other DD (she won't be in the bag though) lol!
Yep all packed and ready to go I am placing a home birth but I packed an emergency hospital bag just in case. I haven't put in my yoga pants or laptop/phone charger for obvious reasons but will write a last minute list of things to grab..
"I solomnly swear I have been up to no good"
Well I'm getting closer to packing! I found a little suitcase (like tiny!) that I'm going to use instead of trying to buy a duffel bag... And I got some cropped sweatpants things to wear home and a nursing tank. That's about all as of right now lol
*Thank you to *Kiliki* for my beautiful signature!*
I'm going to pack before I get my cerclage out (Aug 7) in case that speeds things up. My friend reminded me to pack my breast pump which I didn't think about but I'm going to need someone to show me how to use it!
Well I've put together about half of my birth supplies and my midwife brings the birth kit at 35 weeks when she comes to my house. I just got done buying the scents I want during labor, we're reusing the playlist from when I had my last baby, I'm sure there is plenty more but I can' think of it!
