I wasn't yelled at, but the triage nurse was very irritated with me for the same reason. I was pushing in the wheelchair before I even got up to the L&D floor.

I waited for labor to begin. I thought it would be stupid to pack before then. and even after doing that four times, I'm still not convinced that doing it any sooner would benefit me at all

im already so antsy and ready to have this baby.. i just feel like if i pack a bag now, then i gotta stare at it and wish i was in labor already. so i think im actually going to wait untill i go into labor. but i gotta think about my other childrens bags as well.. i gotta get them to the babysitter when it goes down and i probably need to have their bags ready too..

Yup, same here. It literally took me like 3 minutes to pack my bag both times.

Haha. They checked me as soon as they got me in the bed and I was 9cm, they quickly ran me to the other room and I was pushing the entire time. My water broke as they transferred me to the delivery room bed, and then he was born.

With my first and second I had my bags packed around 37-38 weeks mainly because with both of those pregnancies we were moving about that time and I didn't want to lose anything . With my third I got the urge to pack round 35 weeks for some reason. It took me a week to pack but I'm glad I did since I went into labor at 36 weeks 4 days ( on the day of my baby shower)

DH and I were finishing the baby room and then going to pack my bag right on 37 weeks. I went into labor before I got to the bag. lol.

I packed mine after both baby showers (32 weeks), but ended up re-packing it because I had to have a C-Section. So technically I packed it at 41 weeks : P
