  • I was 39 and a half weeks..... induced. But I packed my stuff at 37 weeks. Just because I knew he wasn't coming any sooner then that because they had checked me

  • I didn't go into labor until 38 weeks he was 10 days from his due date but I had had the bags packed since around 20-25 weeks. lol I'd get bored around the house so i'd unpack and repack our bags at least every day and then i'd go through and fold the baby's clothes a few times a week.

  • I didn't! I went to the dr at 36 weeks and she wouldn't let me go home for fear that my water would break! Hubby had to get all of my stuff together according to what I told him... He was none too happy about how little I had together!

  • Son was at 38 weeks, had my bag packed about a month before. With the twins I was 32 weeks, no bag at all. Their father had to pack one for me and bring it to the hospital.
