It's been so long since I've prepared for my first homebirth, it's totally different when your preparing for your 8th. (my first was a hospital birth)
I've had the same midwife all along, so that's easy. I take the same vitamins pregnant or not, so that was easy, I start some supplements as we get rolling into the second trimester. The last month or so I gather birthing supplies and newborn essentials, I wash up the newborn diapers and soakers, etc...

Funny thing though, each time I start nesting earlier and earlier. Our house if for sale right now and I'm praying HARD for it to sell soon so we can move and I can start building my 'new' nest! LOL!
