I started packing a few weeks ago... maybe around 29w, but only because we aren't going to have a nursery in this house since we're moving about a week after I deliver, and I needed something baby-related to do! I had the itch :p
Baby's bag is fully packed. Mine has a few things in it, like a breastfeeding pillow and some travel size toiletries, but I will wait to finish until I get much closer. Most of what I'm packing for myself, I'm still using like nightgowns and bras. I did make a check list though, in the event that we need to rush out the door so I know what to grab or have DH grab.
TTC #3 starting November 2013

With DD, I'm glad that I started collecting things like a nursing tank, nursing bra, lanolin, etc. early since I went into spontaneous PTL at 33w5d.
This time I have all that stuff in the house, so I'll probably get it all together but not officially pack for a bit.
I think 33 weeks is pretty dang early unless you are high risk or a health concern that could put you into preterm labor.
I have only started to think about packing, but I won't actually start until about 36-37 weeks.
Since I had an unexpected visit to L & D this week (@ 33 weeks), I am now pretty much packed in case we have to go back.
Before that I was planning on packing a bag over winter break. I already had a running list of what I needed, which made it easier on DH when he had to run home and grab stuff our second day in the hospital.
