At least a month early
A friend asked if I had my hospital bag packed. I said no because the baby wasn't due for over a month. Thank goodness I took her advice and went home and packed my bag. My son was four weeks early.
I had mine packed about 3 weeks out. My daughter came exactly one week early. Luckily we were home at the time we needed to go to the hospital so we had time to get ourselves together and ready before leaving.
I work at the same hospital that I delivered at. I figured I would either be at home or my husband would have to run home and get the bag. Sure enough I was admitted straight from work.
I'm a procrastinator, haha. I waited until I was close to my due date. I mean I knew which outfits I was bringing and the other stuff, but I pack light and fast as a rule so I didn't need too much to begin with.

I had my first child in April 2013, just before our one year anniversary. Riley has been an absolute joy and I love every minute of being mom. But I am the first among my friends to have a child, so there isn't always an easy place to go for advice.
