When are you packing your bags??


Hey ladies a I am skipping over a day early lol but had my mw app today and she told me I need to pack my hospital bags. This is baby number 4 and I have never packed my bags this early. I did how ever go into labor at 30 weeks last time and get flown out of my small country town and was out of town until I was 36 weeks so maybe thatís why? I didnít have a bag packed then either so my friend and hubby had to frantically find clothes and things for me which was a bit of a disaster!
I will be leaving town in 8 weeks to go stay in a holiday house until baby is born in the next major city so feel like I still have loads of time or do you think I should be a bit more cautious and pack them with what happened last time?

I would say she's wanting you to be more prepared in case the same happens again. Hopefully you won't need it though, but no harm it getting it ready early and avoiding the same problems again.

I will probably start packing mine over the next couple of weeks, so between 32-34 weeks.

I packed my bags at around 31-32 weeks but that because I was having pretty bad braxton hicks. I went early with my son but not super early.

I don’t have a huge wardrobe variety so I think I might just take photos of the clothes I want hubby to pack so he knows what to put in in case of emergency and then pack closer to leaving town. Babies suitcase is already packed at least

All packed today with the exception of a jellybean stash, water wipes instead of toilet paper for after giving birth and a chapstick. Picking those up tonite. But everything is in the car reading and waiting. Bitter sweet at the moment. Just found out that a much loved family member is in the final stages of renal failure and that she doesn't want to be on dialysis while waiting for a kidney
