Have you bought any supplies for birth yet? If so, what have you bought? If not, have you started looking at any of them yet?

I have all the basics of everything else, such as the towels, sheets, straws etc

I don't have a birth kit that I ordered online last time. Won't need that until about 30 weeks, thats when I ordered it last time.

Can you give me a link to where you can order a birth kit?

I haven't started looking yet. I want to wait until after my next appt just to make sure all is okay with baby before I make any purchase for birth.

My midwife has her customized birth kit here:

Everything Birth, Inc: Birth Kits

I'll need to order it by 34 weeks. A lot of my kit didn't get used last time, and my BF's kit didn't either, so we are actually just planning on combining the two ad hopefully I'll only have a few items to buy. My midwives also have another list of items to purchase, and I'm pretty sure I have most of those already

I got a list from my mw. I ended up picking up most of the kit at Walmart and the rest I ordered from yourwaterbirth.com Then I also have some of the stuff around the house normally. It's all together!

My MWs gave me a birth kit order form for a lady they use in the area. She just does birth kits and sells them from her home so I'm just going to use her. I'm planning to call her in the next week or so to get it sent. I like to be prepared ahead of time!

I have a lot of leftover supplies from my other home births. I'll order my birth kit around 36 weeks. Prior to that I would need to deliver in a hospital so I'm not buying ahead just in case.

Most of the supplies I already have around my house like scissors, string to tie the cord, towels, etc. I will probably buy a birthing pool and whatever other supplies very soon (by the time I'm 36-37 weeks).
