When your high risk OB tells you to start coming to the appointments with your hospital bag, it’s usually a good idea to listen to him. My high risk OB told me to start bringing my hospital bag starting at week 32. Of course my husband and I didn’t listen and showed up at week 32 without our bags. The weeks went by and we still didn’t pack our bags. Every appointment, though, went fine. Baby passed his BPP (biophysical profile) with flying colors, getting a 10 out of 10 each time. I would also go to the regular OB every week and my little guy was sitting high up, cervix completely closed, no sign that he wanted to come out early. We procrastinated on packing because it didn’t seem that urgent. It didn’t seem like our guy was going to come out anytime soon. It felt like we were going to go until our induction date on November 11th.
