    I wrote my list for what I need to take to hospital with me, and I wondered when every body started to pack theirs I'm thinking when I hit 35 weeks + (when I start my maternity) and when to wash the LO's clothes?

    I started my bag at about 32 weeks but finished it yesterday. Started washing babies clothes only a few days ago. Didn't want to do it too early as wanted them as fresh as possible.xx

    I have started mine as had a little scare the other day. Plus have got a little scared by some early ladies on here. I hate not being prepared and my son was a 36 wk emergency c-sec so leaving nothing to chance. x

    I've washed clothes, not blankets yet. I'm only packing baby stuff and labour stuff. Will make a list of things to bring for myself. Worst case scenario just chuck a few babywipes nappies and clothes in a bag and run, baby will live and so will I, hospital gowns are sexy!

    I hadnt even considered it till my xmas eve scare. Convinced he/she will make an early appearance now!

    Got bubs bag ready - nappies, wipes, cotton wool balls, nappy cream, just need 2 sleepsuits n 'coming home' outfit n snow suit when they r washed.

    Got my bag sorted all bar underwear, make up (as I needit in the meantime), 'coming home' outfit.

    Need to test drive carseat in car too - might even leave it set up in there.

    Baby towel wraps, blankets n sleepsuits are being done gradually - got a fab deal one non-bio on Tuesday.

    Gonna stick a list on the fridge od last min things, phone charger, slippers, change for parking (although might pack that now), etc etc.

    Makes it seem very real :)
