NOt sure what nesting is but lately i have been having the urge to cleannn everything... just today I have scrubbed all the floors & walls in my house & washed all blankets & even scrubbed all my furniture.
People have told me its my nesting instinct kicking in..
Well I have always cleaned my house obviously & when seasons change is usually when i do these things normally...
Idk is it nesting or not???? LOL!
IM 36 weeks tomorrow. :)
& If it is or isnt... Have you nested? when & how long after was baby born?



My due date is in october & I want my baby to have her bday in october, hope this aint a sign she is coming soon. Plus i have had back pain & cramps for the past week & a half but i just noted it to be bcus of my excessive cleaning & stuff. hahah.

Nesting is often a strong urge to clean and organize. It's different for different people. My neighbor just cleaned everything she saw, while a girl I knew back home decided that she just had to clean out every closet in the house and reorganize it.



I wish my nesting instinct would kick in, HA! I've been so tired and draggy, in addition to forgetful as hell and easily side-tracked and confused (not like me at all) that my regular housework has just gone to hell in a hand basket.

I dont normally like cleaning very much, ill usually do the basic tidying up, dishes, laundry, vacuming. The last few weeks i am constantly cleaning. I just feel like i need to keep doing it. Ive been working on laundry every day to keep it up, vacuming alot, cleaning the carpets really good. Scrubbing things down, and i just feel like its not good enough. Im nesting for sure.
