No Nesting Instinct?? Christina Tejada Due January 22; 16 kids; Fayetteville, North Carolina 158 posts

I'm 35 weeks & very excited to be meeting my son in 5 weeks but I'm having trouble motivating myself to start setting everything up. I've always heard that a nesting instinct just automatically sets in in the weeks leading up to the birth but I've yet to see it! Anyone got any ideas on how to motivate myself?

I never had the "nesting" with either of mine but I was so excited each time to set everything up.

I never got the nesting instinct. I was not a motivated pregnant person and ended up just putting up her furniture the day she was due.

I didn't "Nest" while pregnant.
It seemed to kick in once he was here... lol.

I nested like crazy with my first but this time around all I want to do is sit on my ass. Not everyone nests

I nested with my DS, but it was only for about 2 weeks before labor. Its normal for women not to nest at all though.
