  • It's never too early! Most reccommend having your bag packed 3 weeks in advance since it's possible to go into labor at any time, especially after 37 weeks.

  • I would say go ahead and pack it now while you are clear headed. I had my dd ten days early and packed my bad while I was in labor. I had to have people keep bringing me stuff I forgot because I was in a hurry to get back to the hospital. I had been that morning and the doc released me for an hour and told me to come back. He said at that point I needed to bring my stuff because he was admitting and inducing me if I hadn't made the progress I needed. I wished I had packed early.

  • No, I packed mine at like 32 weeks. Can't wait to pack again, but since I'm only in my second trimester it's too early for me right now.

  • I packed mine at 30 weeks! Can I make a suggestion? Make a list of everything you need. There will be a lot of things you use every day, so it's easy for something to get left behind. It came in handy for us, since we didn't have the bag with us when we went to the hospital, and my hubby had to come home and grab it and everything that wasn't in it!
