  • Go ahead and pack it..what's the harm? Plus it gives you something to do. I love messing around in my baby's things lol She's due Jan. 30th and I decided earlier today I'm going to pack my/her bag tomorrow haha Early yes, but I'm excited :)

  • Yep, just pack it now and maybe put it in the car so youre ready to go when the time comes. Packing early also helps you know that you have everything.

  • I packed my bag at 30 weeks. If you feel like packing pack :] You never know when it might happen so its better to be prepared.

  • I was due in late October, I packed mine in August lol. I say as soon as possible since it would be one less thing you have to think about later on.

  • Any time really. You never know what's going to happen. I ended up having to spend a night in the hospital at 29 weeks and did not have a bag packed. That was sort of a pain in the ass. I got to the hospital to be checked out and didn't realize I'd be staying.
