I took today and tomorrow off work so I could concentrate on getting ready, and I am just starting to feel like we are there. The house isn't done, we only just moved in a little over a week ago, but it's done enough.
Tomorrow I'll build my labor playlists, put everything we want aside so we can find it easily, and gather my thoughts.
I give this baby full permission to come Wednesday or anytime after.

Did you do a full trial run?? Blow up and fill too?? I can't stomach wasting the water since we're in a desert, but I did blow it up and jump in it... empty.
We filled it about halfway, and I stayed in for a while as it felt so nice and I didn't want to waste all that warm water. We wanted to test the hose connections and the pump for emptying the pool, and good thing we did as DH needed to run out for some plumbing thingamies.
My SIL lent me her regular sized Birth Pool in a Box. It has a built in seat, handles just where you'd want them and a padded floor. It's fantastic. Although I'd go for the smaller of the two if I were buying, as it really doesn't need to be so huge.
Soudns exciting. I can't wait to have my waterbirth. Good luck to you!
It made things seem so much more real. I am so looking forward to this birth!
