    I'm still doing mine, but I think most people aim for 35 weeks

    Around 35 weeks. And the way people have ben popping them out early round here recently, that seems like a pretty good time!!!

    I'm packing early, but only because I'm at high risk of premature labour. I'd say 35 weeks is a good time, although you might want to start planning and buying what you'll need before then especially with Christmas coming up.

    I cheated! My sister did mine for me as a little present. I'd probably leave mine until the day if it was left down to me! Am the most organised person when it comes to working but I'm hopeless once I'm out the office! x

    i havent put everything next to my bag lol, just havent got round to putting it all in my bag, i bought like a trolley suitcase and my husband was saying that is ridiculous why do u need something that big your only going in for a few days, i now and he agrees dont even thing that is bloody big enough
    our hospital asks you to bring everything with you and wont provide anything which i dont mind at all but its just a pain having to cart it all bloody there

    I've been packing it for a month... adding bits as I buy them, and reading as many articles as I could about what to pack - so I could decide what was needed.
