  • now is great because you'll have time to tweak and fiddle with it. also having it ready to go is good in case you forget it or are admitted at a regular dr. appt or something so someone can just run home and grab it for you

  • Pack it as soon as you can so you are ready. You could even put it in the trunk of the car, just in case.
    Make sure you pack clothes that are loose enough.

  • If your asking you should probably start packing, they always say that there is that mothers intuition thing going on. For my pregancy my water broke at exactly 37 weeks, I had nothing packed and i am sure it was hysterical watching me and my husband running around packing a bag when i was holding a towel between my legs :)
