  • I'm in the last month and haven't even begun to pack yet. I think with my first I was all packed and ready to go by week 30 or something. :)

  • Start making a list of things you would like to have. It is a little early now but in the event sonething should happen a list wil make it easier to get things together. Also you can take the list into one of your appointments or on a tour of the birthing facilities and go over it with your doctor/nurses to see if any of it is off limits or what they reccomend. Definetly have it packed by 37 weeks though!

    Good Luck and dont forget to add "going home shirt" on your list, it was the one thing I forgot for myself...
