  • I packed mine at 36 weeks just because its always better to be prepared than have to do after labor starts. Because baby can come anytime especially after 37 weeks up to 42 weeks.

  • I packed mine when labor started. It gave me something to do. I however had my list ready at 38 weeks or so in case DH had to do it for some reason. It was nice to have a project during those early stages of labor. lol. I also took a shower, shaved my legs and did my hair and make up. For the hair I was having contractions 5 min apart! lmao!

  • I had a list of what I wanted to bring but didn't pack until my water broke and I had to leave for the hospital. I didn't bring much, just my toiletry items like toothbrush, facewash, shampoo...stuff that I needed on a daily basis so therefore couldn't pack away.

  • I started packing mine around 34 weeks and made a list of things I would need to grab at the last minute. My first was born at 37 weeks so I was worried my second would be early. As my due date got closer, I threw more things in the bag.

  • that's what i was thinking too ladies but my first was born at 37 weeks and i'm thinking the same is going to happen this time around too... i wasn't packed or prepared when i had my first and i just want to be ready this time and go to the hospital with my bag and not send my husband cause he's not a good bag packer.
