anyone want to share? our due date is dec 1st, and we had a prodomal/BH scare all last weekend, so we've been in overdrive to get ready. (while i also try to do a lot of laying down and directing and drinking water.)
we're doing midwife/hospital birth and have a 2.5 yr old and no local family, so we're also trying to prepare for different childcare contingency plans. fun times! :o)
what are you bringing?? here's what we're currently gathering:
snacks: natural applesauce, crackers, peanut butter, milk frozen in juice boxes, laboraide drink we'll try and make during early labor at home (http://www.naturalbirthandbabycare.com/laborade.html)
old socks, nursing-friendly nightgowns, sarongs for rebozo sifting, long tee.
going-home clothes for the baby. heavy outdoor gown/outerwear sack or blanket in case it's cold.
getting the baby bucket base into the car.
funny movies on DVD for distraction/relaxation/laughter therapy
DS's favorite books and guaranteed stay-put toy, movies for him to watch, a new and exciting toy as a birthday gift from the baby.
toiletries, hair bands, bandana, lip balm, oil for massage.
