  • I'm due May 4th so I'm almost 30 weeks.

    We'll take the car seat to be installed in the next couple of weeks once it's warm enough to clean out our minivan.
    I washed her clothes two weeks ago and got her room all organized.
    I packed our hospital bag last week.

  • My husband installed the car seat for our first son when he came to pick me up at the hospital...for the other 3, it was the same.
    WIth my first and second son, i washed them soon after i bought them, but with my 3rd and 4th boys, they were already washed since most of them were the older 2 boys clothes at one time.
    I packed my bags earlier with my first and second...but waited until the 9th month with my last 2.

  • Clothing I had washed, sorted and put away before 30 weeks. Then I had a preterm scare at 33 weeks and finished everything as soon as I got home. I was planning on doing it at 34 weeks. Although, I'm generally an over-prepared type of person.

  • I washed the clothes as soon as I got them with both. My hubby didn't install the baby seat until we were ready to bring home the baby from the hospital. As far as my bag,with my first, i carried it in my car for atleast the last month of my pregnancy. With my second, I had him 3 weeks early and hadn't packed my bag so I had to rely on hubby to do it.

  • The priority stuff was set first thing, but my husband installed the car seat the morning we went home from the hospital.
