DD was born 2 weeks early (38 weeks). This time, who knows, right?!? So, does anyone have any advice on how early we should set up the aquadoula? I dont think we have enough hot water to fill it up in one shot, so I'd like it ready for labor, but we also have a toddler who *might* be curious

We dropped the ball on that one. 


I went into hard labor at 7pm at night and DH called our MW around 10pm and she asked if it was up and ready... nope! 


We filled it up with our hot water tank and then had big pots (5 gallon) on the stove going to supplement while waiting for the hot water tank to fill again.  Ours wasn't completely full when I was ready for it, maybe half way, but it did happen pretty quickly.
