  • I made sure that I had everything that we needed about 2 months before but only packed the bag about a week before which was at 39 weeks.

  • I wasn't prepared the first time as my water broke at 37 weeks so this time I packed it at 32 weeks.

  • When I was around 27 weeks preggo. I was a born at 28 weeks and I was terrified that the same thing would happen so I wanted to be ready. Thankfully my baby boy came at 37 weeks :)

  • I am due May 27th and I plan on getting the bag ready mid April about 5 or so weeks ahead of time unless I start having preterm labor signs.

  • I was early- I did it around 32 weeks! I had a list of all the last minute stuff we'd need (face wash, tooth brush, etc), and I'm glad I did, because DH had to run home and get the bag.
