    How many people actually have their hospital bag packed? And how far along were you when you did it?

    I am 38+2 and not packed yet. My friend nearly had a fit this morning when I told her! My plan is to get the baby stuff washed when I get home today, and then probably make a start on packing.

    I'm not sure if I'm delusional, or just so convinced this baby will need prized out that I figure I've still got loads of time!

    Mine has been packed today, I'm 38+4. I started packing it around 32 weeks but never actually finished putting bits in. I've still got to throw a phone charger and some snacks in before we leave for hospital!

    30 weeks I packed mine at.

    Probably do the same again as it's when MW will likely go over my birth plan too.

    Mine has been packed and in the car ready since 34 weeks. Both me and the Mr work at the hospital so it's ready in the car just in case I go into labour while at work, although I finish next Tuesday.

    Mine is packed other than we haven't got the baby clothes down from the loft yet. I didn't do it this early last time but haven't got much else baby related to do (last time we had lots of shopping trips and online research keeping us busy) so it made me feel better.

    I'm so lazy.I'm 36+4 and I have my labour bag packed. But I still do not have my ward bag done. Have not even started it. I'm in Ireland and they like to keep you in for a night or 2, so I really should do it.

    I'm starting to pack this week. We go away next weekend so I am packing just in case bump decides she would like to make an early appearance :lol:. DH is also going to install the car seat and base as well from this weekend. My MW gave me a list of items so I'm using that as a guide as well as a few others I've seen online.
