When to pack hospital bag

Message length 300 characters recommended

I started packing my hospital bag two months before my due date. I didn't have it completely packed until 1 month before my due date. I always had a list next to the bag, too, of everyday items (glasses, slippers, cell phone charger), that I would have to throw in my bag before leaving for the hospital. You just never know if you'll be early, so the sooner the better.
