I'm having a hospital birth at the hospital 2 minutes from my house. The plan is to labor at home until I'm in transition or close. Here's my list of supplies thus far:

Plenty of juices/electrolyte water
Aromatherapy lotions
Bathtub with comfy bath pillow
Hypnobabies CDs
Birthing Ball
Bach's Flower Remedy for Anxiety
A rented hospital grade doppler (I'm a L&D nurse, I think I'd go to the hospital sooner than necessary if baby wasn't moving around enough between contractions for my liking and I let myself get worried)
Sterile gloves to check my cervix if I want to check it and my water is broken

Any other suggestions? Thanks!
