  • I had my bag packed early... which they told me was a good idea... but then I started needing things out of my bag and started taking them out, thinking I would just pack it again two weeks before my due date. Bad idea. I went into labor 2 weeks early and realized I didn't have my toothbrush, hairbrush, or my camera! =O
    They tell you it's best to have your bag packed three weeks before your due date, just in case you should go into labor early like I did.

  • I had my bag packed and ready a month in advance just to make sure I was ready I have had 6 kids and it took me the third one to figure out they may come early. My third son was born 3 1/2 weeks early and i didnt have a bag or anything ready...oppss Lesson learned..

  • Heh, I am 37 and a half weeks and we JUST did it the other night - when I went to the hospital for high blood pressure. (We we worried they might keep us - didn't want to get caught with no camera)

  • I got my daughters bag packed 3days! before she was born which was at 38 wks. And I didnt ever get mine packed. We had seperate bags becauseI had a c-sec andI had to pack for days.

  • I packed it the night I started having contractions, 49 hours before my DD was born. She was only 10 days early.

  • For my first two, I think I had my bag packed about 1 1/2 months before my due date. With my third, he was a planned c-section, so, the back got packed maybe a week before the day we needed to be in the hospital.
