 Actually, I remember saying to DH THAT MORNING "I should probably get my bag packed in the next few days" (because my dr did already suspect i wouldn't make it much longer)

I usually have a good idea of what I want in it around 30 weeks but don't actually pack it up until 34-36 weeks. I've only gone 10 days early (other two were later than that) so I don't really need to be prepared before 34-36 weeks.

Haha I get like that near the end and usually when I get those "weird feelings" I do whatever I need to do because more likely than not, I'm having baby very soon! Lol

LOL not to be to funny but if I ask my fiancee to pack a bag for me I would probably end up with a lot of under clothes and probably nothing else but thanks I appreciate it

Well, I was bedridden the entire 3rd tri so our laundry situation was SAD!  Like, literally, I would've had to do laundry before packing my bag, so you can imagine what HE packed for me given that everything was dirty! lol Lets just say I learned my lesson..the hard way!

Me too! Probably most of those things I feel the need to get done, should have been done now, or at least started on! Lol
