    Well, I'm 30 weeks tomorrow (where the hell has that gone?!? Haha)

    When did you all start packing your hospital bags??

    I like to be organised just in case, but I don't wanna jump the gun when nothing could happen for about 10 weeks yet!!

    What do you all think?? Xx

    I started buying at 30eks and packed about 32/33wks.

    I do have the odd bits like makeup, phone charger, loose change etc to pack. But the main stuff is done! Xx

    My apps say from about 32 weeks but I've also heard from 36 - think I'll wait til 36 weeks mainly because I still haven't got half the stuff yet lol and also need to wash baby's stuff. I'm rather disorganised tbh and can remember in my previous pregnancies actually packing while I was in labour :-D xx

    My waters went at 12 we managed to leave home at 2! Meantime I was leaking trying to finish my bag, dress sort the puppy and load everything in the car in the middle of the night lol. Polite enough my contractions started the moment we had everything load and were leaving the driveway ha ha.
