How early did you pack your bag for the hospital?

Lol...I don't know why I don't just do it, but I'm officially past my due date and still haven't. My ass is going to be packing it with a baby coming out of me, I can see it now. I keep saying "I don't feel like I'm going to go into labor today" but one day I will be wrong. If I don't have the baby by next Friday the doctor is going to induce me, so I know full well I don't have more than a week to go and I just haven't. I packed the baby's bag today. I've got to pack my daughter's bag too...and then one for me to take to the hospital.

How early did you pack yours?

  • i think my stuff was packed when i was around 30 weeks. I was just way too excited. Even though i had a not wanted scheduled c-section. My stuff and DDs stuff was packed WAAAY before we actually needed :D

    and i actually changed the bag almost every other day because i thought: "mhhh this onsie i dont like, lets take the pink one.. oh and those socks dont match the pink onsie. And of course today i like the yellow hat more".. my hubby and family were about to shoot me i was so annoying with it :P

  • This is going to sound bad, but I never packed one not even with my first. I just had my husband bring me stuff up to the hospital after I had my babies. Oh well I have always been a procrastiator.

  • I never packed one with neither. I just had to have people bring me things from home after I had the baby. I suck. So why don't you jsut go do it now?? Oh I know, same thing I said, " Oh no not now, I can always do it in a minute. Just a few more minutes on here and it'll get done. Well crap I can do it first thing tommorow."

  • I had mine packed about a month before I was due, although it did me no good because I went to a doctors appointment at 38 weeks and then sent me to the hospital to be induced because of swelling, so the hubby had to go back and get everything.
