    Hi, Sorry If There Is Another Thread On This (I Did Look)

    Just Wondering When Is Right Time To Pack Hosp Bag? I Am Thinking About Starting Over Next Few Days (I'm 28Weeks) But OH And Friends Are Saying It's Too Soon And I'm Being Stupid/Over Anxious But I Just Don't Want To Be Caught Out (If I Need To Go In Or Go Early)

    With my first I did mine at 32 weeks cos I was going on holiday for week 33 and 34, I was so glad I did cos when I got back I was admitted to hospital with pre eclampsia and didnt leave until a few days after then I had him. So in the next pregnancies I did it at week 24 everyone thought I was mad, but then my waters broke at 28 weeks with baby number 3 so I think its better earlier rather than later cos thats the thing with pregnancy and babies you never know whats gonna happen x

    I just finished buying all the little personnel items tonight. I will pack the majority of mine tomorrow - a day shy of 37 weeks. A few other items I still need to purchase.

    I have been having a lot of braxton hicks and pelvic pressure, baby is well engaged, cervix is softening and I think my bloody show has started slowly. Don't remember seeing my mucus plug though. I don't want to get caught not being prepared.

    Good luck.

    I started packing around 34 weeks I think. But I've taken stuff out and added things since, especially baby's things.
