I'm 22+3, and bought two packs of knickers from Primark!

One pack of bikini, one full briefs, which completely bemused my DH smile

Have you bought anything this weekend for yourself?

For yours, not yourself *sigh

Haha! I've bought lots of maternity pads, breast pads and newborn nappies from Sainsbury. I need to get on the case, I need big pants too! I'm 32 weeks, eek!

I'm starting mine on Tuesday (28 weeks) and will also be buying the big baby stuff too. Strangely excited to be spending money because it's starting to seem real.

33 weeks here and just started gathering bits for mine! So far, baby stuff sorted (this is Ds2), and for me I've got as far as maternity pads, giant pants, some cartons of orange juice, some prunes, a handful of breast pads and Lasinoh cream from last time..and that's it. Need to buy some cheapo nighties and things pretty soon!

Wow you're organised! I'm 36 weeks and started mine this morning...

I only did mine last Monday and I am 38+3! I am a disgrace. grin

Nearly 33 weeks here. So far I have maternity pads, a nightie, pants that are probably too big, and lansinoh cream. Also water wipes. Today I bought a pack of newborn nappies as the ones I already had were from 8lb. However the "size 1-2 newborn" pack I bought are all size 2 hmm. Baby's clothes not washed yet so those I'll go in later. That's it so far.

im 26 weeks with dcda twins and have got mine all sorted! very prepped but with twins feel its safer to be prepared in case of prem labour. ive packs nappies, wipes, breast and maternity pads, toiletries, glucose tablets, baby clothes, blankets, muslin cloths. massive pants, nursing bras nighty, slippers, dressing gown. a bit much maybe but better to have too much than too little! x

I'm half way through mine at the moment (37+1). Going to Boots this morning to buy some mini products for my wash bag and to get some baby bits. Taking a long time to get organised this time around!

I'm 35+6 and had mine done for a couple of weeks.

Anyone else baffled as to why mini/travel sized products are more expensive than the full sized version?

Stinkersmum Mon 08-Jun-15 07:45:28

I'm only 21+6 so no need. I have started writing a list of what I'll neef. But I'm the kind of person that doesn't pack for holidays until about 3 hours before departure so I don't imagine I'll pack my bag before labour has started..... blush

Stinkersmum Mon 08-Jun-15 07:50:00

Stinky buy these and dispense!

WorldsBiggestGrotbag Mon 08-Jun-15 08:01:55

Stinkers with my first I packed while in labour! Was in early labour for 40 hours so had plenty of time!

Artandco Mon 08-Jun-15 08:11:13

You only need larger pants for c section tbh, so I would only take a couple incase, and then just regular pants.

AbbeyRoadCrossing Mon 08-Jun-15 09:25:13

I'm starting mine if all is ok at the 20 week scan - just the stuff for me, stuff for baby once viable. I was in without a bag last time - lesson learnt!

Jenga2703 Mon 08-Jun-15 10:20:23

I went shopping with my sister for her hospital bag this weekend - she's 34 weeks! Got her some DiaryDoll pants at Debenhams instead of the cheapies as they were recommended by a friend, alongside some newborn clothes, nappies and wipes! I'm excited to pack the bag and it's not even my baby!!
