DH and I have made a few medium-big grocery/warehouse shopping trips recently, as I am the main shopper in this household (for the two of us and my brother) and I probably won't be out buying groceries again more than once or twice (39 weeks today!)
We have had the birth in mind, and so have made sure to have lots of labor snacks and drinks for me/us, as well as things for the MWs, but I just wanted to pick the brains of y'all who have had a HB or are planning one. I guess I feel kinda good (?) about the non-perishables we have, but since I have no idea when I'll go into labor, am feeling less secure about what we'll have in the fridge/freezer when the time comes. (In the homebirth plan, I indicated they were more than welcome to anything in the kitchen, though.)
Here's what we will for SURE have for the MWs, when they come (because it's off-limits now, or we have a metric ton of it):
-Many assorted (caf and herbal) teas
-Packs of mixed nuts and chocolate
-Mandarin oranges in juice
-Hard candy (just sayin', we have a lot of it, LOL)
Here's what we'll probably have:
-Cereal and milk
-Boxed/canned tomato and chicken soups
-Trader Joe's boxed Indian food
-Lots of frozen things to make smoothies
-Cheese sticks (maybe)
-Hummus and pita chips
IDK, should I set some more specific things aside? Easy meal-type items? Maybe buy some juice? Even though they should REALLY feel free to help themselves to absolutely anything, IDK... maybe they sometimes feel weird about that?
I will ask at my next appointment if they want anything specific, but just wondering...
