For your homebirth that you didn't need to worry about?

I'm worried about making sure there are enough seats for the MWs to sit that are comfortable. I'm worried about how hard/easy it will be for me to get up and go pee..... if I'm outside, should I just pee outside? I wouldn't have an issue with it, but not sure how the MWs would take that Enough blankets/chux pads etc.?

Oh same here!

I honestly wouldn't have called my MW with dd1 except when I took the bath to slow down what I thought were contractions (and they did slow down and I just brushed it off) I thought my water broke or I peed. She says it didn't break (I think it was a high leak though) but by the time she got there I was 6cm.

With dd2 I had prodromal labor, and it was all painful so I couldn't tell when it "for real" started or was just more PITA prodromal labor, DH had to make the call on that one!

I always worry about having enough food in the house! I usually go past 41 weeks but on the off chance I go into labor early I try to have enough snacks on hand for the birth team from 38 weeks on. My kids always get into them and it feels like we are constantly at the store.

I'd buy my own cabinet with a padlock on it or something

Right now I'm worried about which room I want to set the birthing tub up in. Lol. We thought the basement, but both bathrooms are on the second floor of the house... So now we're thinking maybe my son's room, since it's the largest. I can't fully decide yet.I'm also worried about keeping my MW entertained.. even though I know I shouldn't. I just don't want people waiting around on me. lol
