In light of today's appointment and my history of PTL, I'm seriously considering getting my bag packed just in case.

I told DH last night that I needed to get this new LO a going home outfit. Does that count?

I'm debating about this right now! I have a follow up appt tomorrow and I'm afraid if I've dilated anymore or anything he is going to readmitt me to the hospital. I think I may pack a light bag tomorrow before I go and leave it in the bedroom so if by some chance I do end up getting readmitted, someone can just grab it and bring it to me or I can run home and grab it before I go to the hospital.

Since there's no worry about PTL for me at this point in time, it's too early for me (29 1/2 weeks) - I plan on packing my bag after I get back from vacation in August (about 36 weeks.)

Hopefully by then I'll have the baby's clothing all washed so I can choose which ones I want to bring to the hospital for her to wear home!

I've got the carseat washed and almost ready to be put in the car, does that count? lol

I haven't, but I probably should. I'm 31 weeks now. I kept putting it off with DS, and ended up being induced anyway. If I have my way, baby girl will come when she's ready so I guess I'd better be ready for that!

Not really. The more kids I have the less I feel like taking with me because I never use half the stuff I take. I need a toothbrush and deodorant, baby needs some clothes, then my boppy pillow. It's only 24 hours in the hospital, right? :)

But really, it probably is a good idea if you have a history of PTL and I probably will pack a little something in August.

I'm semi-packed.
