    I packed my labour bag 28 hours into my labour, then headed to the hoapital

    My sis was all excited and came home at 5.30pm and i'd been in labour for over 24 hours, she said come on lets go to the hospital, i'll get your bag, lets go!!!!!!

    I looked at her all pathetic and said "I haven't packed a bag "

    We went and packed a bag and headed to the hospital a few hours later. For me if i packed the bag it meant labour was really going to happen and i was terrified!

    I packed mine at 32 weeks.
    The night before going into labour, I re-packed it, adding a few more things, which I ended up needing. Must have known I'd be needing them!

    I never got around to packing one when i had Ella - she came early at 34weeks. This was a pain in the butt because DH never bought the correct things i requested to the hospital and i was in for 10 days! This time around i'll be packing around the 30 week mark - if not before hand. You can never be too organised

    With Anneliese, i never got to pack my bag... went straight from pub (where i was for dinner and drinks with friends) in an ambulance to the hossy, and never left. If i ever do have another, i will be packing quite early...

    36-40+ for me. With DD i was prepared around the 30wk mark but DS all i had in there were pads lol. So when i went into labour i started packing stuff in, at least that way i knew exactly what was in there and didnt have to try and remember what id packed.

    Not sure i can be so slack this time as my labour with DS was only 3hrs so i dont think i can afford to be a slacko, plus when i start to feel contractions im going to have to go to mums as im half hour from hospital and DH is over an hour away with work. Fun Fun Fun.

    In saying all that im sure ill be slack and not pack again. I havent even bought pads yet lol .

    I'm 35+2 days and I still haven't packed yet. Keep talking about it and have written a list of things to put in the bags but just haven't gotten around to doing it yet. Should get a wiggle on huh!
