I've checked out the links for the suggested fishy pool, but it doesn't like they are making the round fishy pool anymore. What's an inexpensive fishy type pool that I can get which will work for a water birth? Where can I get it at?

Adaline'sMama... was that pool deep?!! It looks so shallow, but the price tag is definitely nice, and if it works well....

Answering my own question for any future mams searching on here. The coral reef fishy pool (which is larger than the aquarium fishy pool) is nice and roomy. I went ahead and ordered it and did a test run with water. It's super comfy and I'm looking fwd to laboring in it. The internal dimension is roughly 50" diameter. I think I'll really like the depth. It's deep enough to cover my whole big ol' belly, but doesn't feel too deep and should be easy to get in and out of. Happy birthing!
