I usually pack at 35 weeks, which is pointless. In future pregancies i'll ideally be homebirthing but if not, i'll pack at 38 weeks.

With DD1 I packed my bag around 38wks. With DD2 I had it backed at 33 weeks since I kept going into preterm labor and was told I wouldn't make it past 36 (I ended up delivering at exactly 42wks, HA!), with DD3 & DD4 I packed my bag around 37wks and DS was a home birth so I didn't need to pack, but I started getting things "set up" around 37wks.

I don't have my bag fully packed until I am in labor. I have what I need for baby but most of what I pack I use on a daily basis. I have a running list in my head of what I need. :)

I have a bag packed since 33wks. Just because I ended up having ds at 32w.6d

I've packed most of the things, but the carseat is still not installed. 36 weeks.

I plan on packing at the beginning of February (34/35 weeks). I have blood pressure issues, so I figure I better be safe and not sorry! We'll probably install the base for the carseat sometime around then as well.

 i delivered #2 in my 36th week.  i'm due may 4th so i'll make sure i have a bag partially ready at the beginning of april.  our hospital is 5 mins away so i can throw something together quickly or my hubby can easily run back and forth if necessary

Were also about 4mi from our hospital and my previous pregnancies were 36weekers. I actually just pulled out my other two kidses carseats to wash them with the baby seat too lol. Might as well right?

 that's one thing we still need to do...car seat.  after i get my dd moved to her new room, i'll repaint the nursery and then we'll go into the garage and pull out all the baby gear.  i'm pretty sure our infant seat is expired now but we need to get it down from the rafters to check.  i still have some time but i'm trying to get all of the tasks done in the next month or 2 so i can just sit around and be huge and lazy at the end!!!
