Tuesday QOTD

Have you packed your hospital bag? If not, by what week do you plan to have it packed?

I haven't packed my bag yet but I have started my list of "what to pack". I would like to have it mostly packed by week 34... or at least have everything available to pack by then.

LOL. Um, I am probably the least prepared for this baby out of everyone on the board. I have a changing table.....that's about it. So, no I haven't even begun to think about the hospital bag. I suppose sometime at the end of September/beginning of October, so....week 36?

Heheh, nope.. not packed yet! I will probably pack it sometime between week 31 and week 36. I was going to pack it this week, but we're going on vacation and all my bags are currently spoken for Wink

I was thinking about packing between week 32-36. Our hospital is 1 1/2 hours away so I'm sure I'll want to try to remember everything. Otherwise, poor hubby will be out shopping for everything I forgot!

I have not even thought of packing a bag. I am not sure what you even bring.

Hahhaha this is me! I have nothing except some clothes plus my leftover stuff like pack n play and swing...oh and a few blankets. Wink

I'll probably pack it around 38 weeks or so.

No... I have a list of things I might forget but most of it I can't grab until last minute. I am still using my camera, pillow, makeup...ect..but I do have his diaper bag ready and I have no intentions on going into labor until after 37 weeks so I will probably get it ready by then. Last time I was packing after my water broke and having contractions. I also was vaccuming so I am sure I can pack this time too!

33 Weeks?

I'll probably pack at 33 weeks just to be over prepared. This is my first so I don't know if I will go early or late or in between. I agree with a poster who said that she didn't know what to include in the bag. I have no idea what to bring.

I'm planning on doing that this weekend. I was going to wait another 2 weeks, but with the news I got yesterday of contractions and my cervix thinning already, I'm thinking it won't be long now.

I'll be packing around 36 weeks. I hate the thought of packing early and then just seeing the bag sitting there ready to go for weeks and weeks.

Umm totally right with you....but I don't anything, except what people gave me already! I have like 4 outfits and some burp cloths! That's it. I will probably pack around 32ish weeks or so I think.

The bag is about the only thing I DO have started! I got a craft bag that will be our diaper bag and this past weekend my DH said we should start collecting things to go in it. We bought a few travel size toiletries so they could be packed and we wouldn't be scrambling to get things together.

We should have a thread about what to bring for each person at the hospital (you, DH, baby).

I'll pack as soon as the renos are done and I can actually get into the room where every thing is! I packed at thirty nine weeks last time but added stuff in after my water broke.

I'm not even close to being ready for the arrival of the baby so I haven't even thought of packing my bag yet. I will probably start prepping that within the next 6-7 weeks or so.

I finished packing last time while I was laboring. I had my list so I was basically just gathering. I would stop & breath through my contractions & then get back to it.

I don't even have a clue where my diaper bag is lol Hopefully won't need one anyway. Will prob pack a small bag with essentials for the baby as hospitals here do not provide any diapers, blankets or anything. Not too worried about me, if I do end up there DH can grab me bits to get me through.

No. Due to our circumstances (moving at 38 weeks preggers), it won't be packed until probably 38 weeks. I'm in no rush since DD wasn't born till 41 weeks and no reason to suspect Owen will come any sooner.

No I haven't packed and I don't plan on it anytime soon. I probably won't until I'm in labor if I'm being honest. It felt awful to stare at the packed back when I was over due with DD lol. My plan is for my mom to stay up here with my kids so I don't need to pack for them either.
