So everybody keeps telling me i really need to pack my hospital bag, I'm only 34 weeks. I'm not dilated our effaced at all, i dilated early with my first son and still had him a day before his due date. I just think its to early i was thinking of packing like 37 or 38 weeks but even then seems soon to me. When did you pack your bag?

I packed around 34wks. I say anything is possible after 35w, and I am going to be prepared.

I packed most of my stuff around 37-38 weeks & packed baby's stuff around 30-something weeks. I didn't fully pack until the day I went into labor though.

SO doesn't drive, so i always take him to work. I'm scared to death of going into labor while he's at work, though i do have my dad here to drive and everything. But he keeps telling me, go to the hospital first, then dad can come get me. I'm like uh i don't think so lol

I gave birth at 35 weeks and had nothing packed. I think having your bag packed now would be just fine.

Lol i have no idea, its been 5 years for me and i don't even remember what i packed or if i even packed i think i remember having some type of bag. Im going to pack mostly for me I'm assuming the hospital will supply most everything for baby except for going home outfit and a warm blanket and if course car seat.
