I'm 39w2d and have had no signs of nesting.. I don't kno if every woman has nested and if its a fact that all pregnant mommies nest..

Yes with the first, kinda with the second, and nope with the third. It seems my desire to nest is directly related to my free time.

Nope, I was super lazy before DS came. His things were washed and clean but other than that the house in okay shape lol.



With my first I was always cleaning anyway, I was mostly nervous with her so I think cleaning just helped.

I randomly nested throughout my pregnancy. But I never ever nested after 35 weeks. I became a lazy bum lol.

I nested for a week before I went into labor. It could've had something to do with boredum though lol. I just had a sudden big boost of energy that week.

Like I made sure everything was perfect got all her things set up got my bags in the car, getting ready but nothing serious like my mom said... She was all telling me that I'll go crazy and clean and make sure every little thing was perfect and not dirty at all. I'm anal about how my house looks its always clean.. But the past 2 weeks all I want to do is sit and relax and sleep alot,..

Your due date is just an estimate. It can be off by 2 weeks in either directions. Some women just never nest. Your baby could still be here today or tomorrow, or you could still have a couple weeks.

Some people do not nest at all. So no it doesn't. But at the same time a due date is an estimate not an exact date.

Ya. Those things won't work unless baby is ready lol. Hopefully your OB can tell you some progression is happens. The cramps sound like BH contractions. Body is preparing for the big day.
