What do you have so far ? A ton of stuff lol. My midwife gave me a very basic supply list but i like to be overprepared so i've added things on my list that i read other homebirthers used.

What do you need ? Extra sheets, Emergen-C, chux, Matress Protector, Air pump for pool, Hose and connector for pool, air mattress so that i can move around to different areas if i needed too. And a lot more just can't think right now.

How much do you plan on spending on everything total ? i don't want to spend no more than 200.00 or less if i can help it.

Where are you getting your supplies from ? Walmart, Amazon.com, Good Will, Dollar Store.

When do you plan on having everything ready ? i believe my midwife wants everything ready and set up by 36 weeks.

Where are your birth supplies ? i'm not too sure where i plan on birthing at just yet. Its either in the living room or in the basement. So my supplies will be in one of those places. I dont want to setup to early because i could see DD getting into everything !

What do you have so far ? A garden hose haha. I haven't ordered our birth kit yet. I mean, I have blankets and towels ready to go but those I owned before this baby was conceived.


How much do you plan on spending on everything total ?
My midwife gave us a list, so I'll spend what I need to for the list.

When do you plan on having everything ready ? By early October.

Where are your birth supplies ? The hose is still in the car. The blankets and towels are in a shelf in the bathroom closet with a note on them saying don't use.

How much do you plan on spending on everything total ?
probably $175, the birth kit is $100.

Where are you getting your supplies from ? Walmart, drugstores, dollar store, big lots.

When do you plan on having everything ready ?
Order the birth kit at 34 weeks and have everything ready by 36 weeks.

I was telling my mom that i needed to get my birthing supplies and she offered to help !! So she made a list and will be getting what she can. Mil bought my kiddie pool i might even let her know what supplies i might need since she says she wants to help as well. I'd say if you have family members who want to help take them up on there offer !!

Our family members have spent a lot on us already. My IL's bought the crib, dresser and changing table, my parents bought us the glider and ottoman. So I'd feel bad asking for more help. So I think you're right, if you have family who can help, get it! Ours already helped us greatly :)

I don't have anything yet. I think my MW will give me a birth kit.

The only supplies that I have right now are the extra sheets (my midwife has instructions on how to prepare them, they are not prepared yet) and the plastic mattress cover. I'll start buying the rest when I am about 32 or more weeks along. It will give me something to do.

My mom is bringing down some supplies when she comes to visit this week (chux pads, towels, sheets, and Emergen-C). I'm trying to get everything out the way so that during the last few weeks i can get some good Nesting in lol

Most everything I need is around the house, I just have to gather it up. The "birth kit" my MW is giving to me.

God, I'm the worst procrastinator! I don't have anything ready (or so it feels) but my MW said I wont need much anyways!
