I'm kind of, sort of thinking of a hospital bag. But they've got the tub, the gown and slippers, the birth ball, the food and drinks, the pads, the pp giant undies (LOL)... So I would want music? A rice bag? And maybe some more substantial snacks for DH (and for me to sneak if I get hungry! Although I puked every single thing up last time so food isn't really a priority for me this time.)
What do the oils do for you guys? Just a distraction or do they have actual properties to them? I can kind of see it being nice, but I make negative associations with smell really easily so I don't want to "ruin" lavender for the rest of my life because I was in pain when I smelled it. Yes, I'm weird. I have a friend visiting next week who is a doula and I know she likes to use oils so I'll have to pick her brain.
I'm having a rough time sleeping too tspencer. My mind races at night. It took forever to fall asleep last night, but then I slept pretty hard once I was out so that was nice for a change.
