Not too early. I packed my bag at about 27.5 weeks and got admitted to the hospital at 28 weeks. I was SO thankful to have my toiletries and some comfy clothes all packed. My husband just had to swing by the house and get my bag. (Yoga pants, tees, toiletries, makeup!!!, spare camera, snacks, etc.) He also brought my laptop.
Since being released from the hospital I have slowly been adding items I would want/need for labor/delivery that hadn't yet made it to the bag. (Nursing bra, etc.)
We also pcaked a bag for my husband the other day, and threw both bags into my car. My husband's bag includes sweatpants (for sleeping, and something he would feel comfortable wearing in front of guests vs. pj pants), tee, long sleeved tee, sweatshirt, socks, underwear, toiletries, and snacks.
In the next week or so we will probably wash some newborn clothes and start throwing those into a bag as well.
If you want to start packing, GO FOR IT. It's not something you would ever regret.
