Ok. Hospital Bag, Have you packed?
Well, I will be 33weeks this week and Still haven’t packed my bags let. Which is a little weird for me, I always have to be on top of things! I am not at all a  procrastinated!!! So, I’m guessing Its just doesn’t feel "real" let? If that makes sense!? Like, the time has gone by so fast, I feel like I still need a little more time...... So, when did you all pack your bags? And when do you think they should be packed by(lastest) LOL........

I think I packed my bags close to the halfway mark... but I'm incredibly organized and have to have all the details figured out. It wasn't because I was afraid of early labor... it was because I just wanted everything done!

I would say 37 weeks should be the latest you get packed since you're considered full term at that point!!!

That's because you're contending with all of those pregnancy hormones! Don't worry, you'll get that "nesting bug" soon and you'll be scrubbing your baseboards with a toothbrush and your hospital bag will be in the trunk!

I think for me, part of the reason I haven't packed at 35 weeks is b/c I don't want to jinx anything.  I've been such a nervous wreck this whole pregnancy that something was going to go wrong that I haven't washed any clothes from the shower or anything...  But - time's a wastin!!

Im getting ready to get discharged and I will tell you now the main things you will need will be socks and your own snacks.  My room is freezing; so I'm glad I packed the baby both long & short sleeve gowns.  Also get:
*a good nursing bra (milk is coming in and boobs are very heavy today)
*deodorant, toothpaste, mouthwash, lotion, showershoes, lite-weight robe
*if you prefer some airfresherner...my room smells, well hell like hospital! :)
*comfy clothes to wear home...i'm back down to my 4mth maternity clothes; nah nah na boo boo!!!
anything else i can think of i'll let you know!  Good luck ladies, your time is coming!

LOL.  I think I haven't done it yet for a few reasons.  I'm working full time and taking care of a house and 3 other kids....this will be my 5th delivery so I'mjust like "yeah whatever"....and I do tend to get paranoid about jinxing myself lol.  BUT with this being delivery # 5 I could go much earlier and faster so I really should get on the ball I only have 5 weeks til I"m considered term and i could easily go before then.  I have most of MY things packed...just gotta add a few more items.  I got a backpack today for babys stuff (I hate diaper bags..backpacks work better for me) so I just gotta get everything put IN it.  I've got pack my other three kids their "keep me occupied" bags becuase I have a feeling I won't have anyone to watch them and they'll be in the delivery room with hubby and I. AND last but not least I had to put the stroller/carseat together and swap everyones seats around to install the carseat. THEN I think I'm ready LOL.  

As for packing things...from my experience this is what I'm taking:

ME:
notepad, pen, pencil, sodoku book
novel
a homemade cd or two with my fav. music
nursing bra
couple pairs of granny panties LOL
my own pads just in case
scrunchie
nursing pads
lanolin
toiletries
camera, extra batteries and charger
camcorder-charger
disposable camera (just in case)
jammies - 2 sets (sleep pants and a tshirt or nursing shirt) just in case you bleed or breasts leak through
2 pairs of socks
slippers
going home outfit-either a maternity outfit or something stretchy
I do the handwritten birth announcements so i put them in my bag so i can fill them out while there
phone card and/or make sure you have your cell phoen and charger
list of phone numbers
copies of id, insurance, birthplan, advanced directives etc if you have that


For Baby:
1 light blanket
1 warm blanket
several diapers
baby wipes
rash cream
hair brush (in case he/she is born WITH hair lol)
a few outfits...durring summer I pack 1 warm and 2 cool outfits
scratch mits
caps
booties/socks
lotion
burp clothes
bibs
pacifiers if you are going to use them (atleast two)
carseat (obviously)

If I remember anything else I'll post it
