Re: Tell me about your birth tub

I have this one ordered: http://www.thenaturalmotheringshop.c...Fcategory%3D99
But, its not here yet, and I've been having contractions for two days... so I don't know if I'll actually get to use it!

Actually, that was a bit of a problem when I was stretched out across the length of the tub. My foot kept pressing against the heater and it got sort of annoying. However, I spent most of the time sitting cross legged leaning against the side of the tub so then it wasn't an issue.

Re: Tell me about your birth tub

We are either using our jacuzzi bathtub or my mom's portable hot tub. I like the idea of her hot tub because we can set the temperature and there would be plenty of room for DH to be in there with me, but it would be a pain to set it all up just to take it down and set it back up at her house after the birth. She bought hers on Homeshopping for around $1000 and it's really nice.
