I'm "due" between November 18th and the 21st. I'm going by the 21st.

Do you think it would be too early to buy our birth supplies in late September?

My midwives has their patients buy them on/by the 36th week. I think you'd be fine with September.

See, I can't remember right now what my midwife said haha.

I am a planner and it's horrible. I like to be fully prepared. I plan on asking my midwife again, thanks

We bought ours at 36 weeks as well. If the baby had been born before that it would have been a hospital birth so we waited until then. It's so exciting to buy them!

Well you can never be too early...but you could be too late. So I think whenever you want to order is fine. My mw says by 34w. So since we have the same due date I'll probably order sometime in the beginning of October, all depends on pay days

I just ordered everything last week. I'm 35 weeks now. I'll have everything by this weekend. I plan to do a trial run with the birth pool then.

i guess technically my birth supplies were purchased at 30 weeks. all my supplies are included in my mw's fees, and that's when i finished paying her. i didn't get the big box until my 36 week appointment though.
