In brief: PACK SOON

A term pregnancy is >37 weeks (acog definition) so if you go into labor then you will be delivered.
However going into labor now would be 'pre-mature' labor but you would be managed expectantly depending many factors: mother's health (e.g. Developing pre-eclampsia) or baby's health (e.g. Low afi) congrats!

In brief: Hospital bag

At 35 weeks pregnancy i will suggest you should have it packed in case you go in early labour.

In brief: No specific day

Important thing is to be prepared when the time comes; so packing bag now is good idea.
Make a list of any last-minute things to be added and place the list with the bag so the trip to the hospital is less frenzied. Good luck with the delivery.
