Hospital bag?

Has anyone else NOT pack their hospital bag yet? I'm 37.5 weeks and I keep putting it off. I should probably get on top of that!

Re: Hospital bag?

  • Me!  36 weeks today.  I've got a few things tossed in the bag, but I need most of the stuff I'll be taking between now and then.  I figure if it comes down to it, I can pack during early labor.  It'll be nice to have something to do, I guess...

  • I've packed the stuff I believe I need for labor.  And by that I mean my extra phone charger, rubber bands and headbands for my hair, chapstick, insurance card, and a box of Mojo bars for my husband to eat.

    Aside from that, I've got nuthin'.  

    ETA:  I also have socks and headphones in my bag.  This post has been helpful though because there are a few things mentioned below that I forgot to even get at this point.  I don't own a robe and would really like to have one for one guests come to visit.

    I'm almost 36 weeks and have not packed mine yet.  I have some of the stuff to put into it, but have yet to get the rest and start packing it. 

    I do have LO's bag pretty much ready.

  • I have a running list of things I think I'll need to pack, but I haven't actually done it yet. I'm planning on starting it Saturday and even if it's not 100% done I think I'll be happy that I at least have SOMETHING ready to go.

  • I check in for my c-section at 7:30 tomorrow. I haven't packed yet. I have everything, so I'm one step ahead of where I usually am when I have to pack.

  • Mine is like 3 quarters packed but I'm procrastinating on a few things. Also the car seat isnt installed yet and I really need to get on top of that.

  • Mines packed but I'm due tomorrow. It made me feel more prepared to do it early but I'm sure you have enough time when you go into labour.

    38 weeks tomorrow and no, the hospital bag isn't packed yet.  I just chose a bag yesterday and threw in a bathrobe that I want to bring, but nothing else is in there yet.  It's been on my to-do list for a couple weeks now. 

    I have started a packing checklist though, so if it comes down to it I can pack in a hurry.

  • Me! I am really procrastinating. My mom is convinced I will go early and keeps bugging me to get it packed. Maybe I will work on it this weekend.

  • With both of my girls I never packed one until I was walking out the door. With my first I took a Walmart bag with socks and underwear, my second I packed the night before my RCS when I couldn't sleep. This time I got nervous and packed early.

  • I have mine done, but H has nothing. I have been begging him to at least make a list of what he needs so that he is not stressing out like a crazy man when I'm in labor and need him to be calm.  He is excitable.

  • I'll be 37 weeks on Saturday and I've got some things packed but I really need to get onto packing everything. At least most of LO's bag is packed.

  • I keep saying I'm going to start it but haven't yet. I have the diaper bag packed and ready to go but that's because I don't need any of that stuff before then. I will probably start to at least throw some extra things in there that I don't need for now like toiletries and stuff. I'm just afraid now I'll go in for an appt and be sent to the hospital for whatever reason and won't have anything for H to grab.

  • I've thrown some travel-sized stuff into a gym bag- but that's about it. No clothes or baby items yet. I'm majorly slacking in this dept.

  • I have SOME things packed but I'm certainly not done!

    I should really work on that today since I'll be 39 wks tomorrow!

    (I also haven't been able to motivate hubby to pack his stuff!)

  • I didn't have mine packed. Granted, I was super early but I survived without it packed and DH just went home to get me the things I needed after LO was born.

  • I just got mine done Sunday at 38w3d. MH was bugging me about it. I figured it was probably about time.

  • I haven't. I'm 36 weeks 1 day. I plan to soon!
  • I packed mine the other day.  I like to be over-prepared.   Hubby still hasnt packed his, though, but he will this weekend.   The car seat base is installed.

    I just put a couple of outfits, blankets, and mittens in for the baby.  Should I take anything else for her?

  • I am over 36 weeks and haven't done it yet either. I do have a few things picked out for baby to wear home but haven't put them in a bag or anything yet.

    Question: I noticed Beachy has as diaper bag packed. Were you (or anyone else reading this) planning to bring it to the hospital with you? I never thought of doing that.

    Not me.  I guess it depends on the hospital, but mine gives us everything the baby needs for our stay and I'm not going to need anything special between the time we leave and arrive home.

  • No, but I do have a checklist. That counts for something, right?

    FWIW, we didn't really pack a bag last time, either, so there was a lot of running around throwing randomshit in a backpack. You'd think we had learned our lesson.

  • Baby's bag is packed, and DS's bag is packed since he's staying with my ILs. But, mine and DH's bags are not packed. I have a couple things in a bag (nursing bras and tanks, underwear, flip flops for the shower), but just plan on throwing some clothes and toiletries in right before we leave.

    36 wks, mine's not packed, but I keep saying I want to do it. The other night I made a list of things to pack, so I figure that's a start, right? ;D
