When to pack?

im 7 months pregnant, when should i get mine and babies bags ready for the hospital? i know im probably just crazy, but i keep having this nagging feeling that she is coming early. i wanted to wait to put her bag together till after my shower but the girls who are throwing it for me keep changing the date so now im thinking i better prepare withought waiting to see what everyone gets me. anyways, just wondering when most of you ladies got your bags ready

  • I packed mine and my daughters bags at 8 months lol. I was already set on her going home outfit along with mine and i put everything i needed for the hosiptal in my car so if anything happend all i would have to do is get up and walk out the door. But anytime you would want to pack would be fine. If you have a feeling that she may come early then it would be best to pack early lol.

  • With my son I don't think I packed till that day. I went in for a regular dr. visit the day before my due date, they asked if I wanted to be induced, I said yes. I went home, showered, shaved, packed, ate dinner, then had my dad drive me to the hospital. My son was born the next morning on his due date. I don't think I'll be so lucky this time around, and I was thinking the same question. I think because SO works a lot and there's a good chance I'll be home alone when labor happens I'll make sure everything is packed and ready about a month or so before hand. That way 911 or a family member can just grab the bag and go.

  • I did it early, at around 32 weeks. I'd had a list going before that, and another of things that would need to be packed last minute (tooth brush, face wash, body pillow, etc). I was excited, and wanted to be all prepared! We did the carseat around 36 weeks.
