    seems a bit early for me at 30 weeks, but I wondered when everyone else started to get their hospital bags ready. From what I remember with my first, I kept changing my mind about what to pack so I ended up packing it about 20 times.

    Mine is already packed! But I had a hospital scare when I was about 27 weeks and I had nothing packed! So my husband and I had to throw a few things in a bag and hurry to the hospital. It was awful not to be prepared but thank goodness I didn't go into labor. So now I'm all ready to go because I would rather be prepared then not. :)

    I'd started to get mine ready when I was about 30 weeks, but mainly because I'd just come back from my hols and had a few things that I was going to use at the hospital and the cases were down out of the loft so, just thought I'd get it start. Although I only actually finished last week x x

    I bought some pjs yesterday and went to walmart today and bought a little kit with like travel size shampoo/toothbrush/toothpaste/razor/shaving gel/etc etc etc and got like a travel sized deodorant to go with it. Thats about it. I have baby stuff bought but not packed. I'll do it after I get through my mountain of school work in the next 3 weeks

    I've started mine (which I hope I won't need) in that I've got breast pads and maternity pads together! lol Need to think about it more properly. I've almost got LO's bag finished though. I figure DH can use it at home if we get the home birth.

    I started buying bits and pieces around 32 weeks and started packing around 35, but i've unpacked and repacked into different bags and still haven't finished! Need to find some nice tops that button away at the top because i dont fancy wearing a granny nightie :o
