Not really. I'll go back to part time hours in a few weeks so then I'll be forcing myself to nest. My house is a disaster. I have taken a sudden interest in our yard lately. I'm wondering if that's nesting. I made DH make me raised planters for a veggie garden, buy some flowers, and a pretty arbor to put up. After living here for 6 years, I suddenly want my yard to look pretty

I rearranged my kitchen cupboards. Does that count? lol I don't recall ever really having that nesting urge, but I will have to get busy before long because our house is just a mess right now.

Well, let's just say, our apartment has never been this decluttered in the year and a half we've lived here. The last few weeks I've just gone crazy and cleaned/organized every room.

I've started doing dishes (which I never used to do). Suddenly the way my husband cleans the kitchen just isn't up to snuff for me. Haha. The rest of the house is still a disaster though.

I want so badly to nest but we should be moving in a few weeks so it makes no sense whatsoever. If only I could turn that nesting bug into a packing bug, I'd be on top of things.

I have started a bit but not nearly as much as I would like to. I have decluttered the living room and dining room as well as cleaned all the baseboards and wooden blinds in those rooms. I've started trying to tackle the kitchen but my motivation has been lacking the last week or so as sleeping usually sounds like a better alternative lately.

haha, um, negatory. I'm not a nester. Not even a little. With DS I did his laundry put it away and was done. It's the same for this LO. I haven't done it yet, waiting on buying a new dresser, but as long as I do it before she comes I'm fine.

I have been nesting almost this entire pregnancy.. and honestly it is driving me a little nuts! I feel like I need to follow my 2 yr old around with a broom and clorox wipe EVERYWHERE lol. Last pregnancy it didn't hit until the week I delivered.

Right now I want to go on a massive de-clutter and get rid of all the crap we don't use to goodwill. I have been bugging DH to help me do that for weeks and weeks.

Yes! I have cleaned my bedroom and rearranged baby's furniture 4 times now. And every single day I am washing every dish, wiping every surface, and sweeping every speck of dust or dog hair off the floor. I cleaned out and organized my entire closet today....I can't get things organized enough it seems. Especially living with my parents because they just leave a trail everywhere they go!

I'm always nesting.

I don't ever feel that urgent, unusual need to clean All The Things because I'm sort of a neat freak as it is. I did go a little overboard around 22 weeks and set up/organized ALL of the baby things, so if he came today the only thing we'd need is the carseat. Clothes are all organized, diapers prepped. DH needs to finish putting together the crib; it's been sitting half-done for weeks because he put the wrong screws in the back, stripped them and got them stuck so now he has to go but more longer screws to get the front rail on. Why do they refuse to READ THE MANUAL first?! Ahem. Anyway...

I made a spring cleaning list but haven't done much on it. It's not stuff that absolutely has to get done, but if I get a wild streak I might move some kitchen appliances and scrub the floors underneath, that sort of thing. My MIL will be coming over a lot and she has a tendency to do stuff like that--take apart the fridge and scrub it down, etc. I don't want her to think we're slobs so I'm gonna do it first so it's not so bad.

Only in the baby's room thus far, but I'm sure it will come.

I am sort of pre-nesting... making lists and stuff. Once DD starts preschool I will start going through my list. I am itching to steam mop all the floors and also wash the couch cushion covers, they have yogurt stains and random toddler stains all over. I also finally got our old nice wingback chair reupholstered, which makes me feel great whenever I look at it, that was on my list for YEARS I will not set up any gear until May though. No reason to clutter up our tiny house prematurely.

I've been off and on nesting. I went through a huge de-cluttering phase and now that that's over I feel sort of in limbo. I want to get things done but there are a few things my DH needs to take care of before it can happen. Like putting up the storage shelves in the kids bath and the closet organizer.

Uhmm, in my head I am but I haven't gotten to much of it. I've had such a hard time maintaining simple things like the dishes/laundry and bathroom that i haven't gotten to the huge tasks at hand. My bedroom has a lot of storage from the kids hand-me-downs and keep-sakes as well as other clothing items and such. It's an absolute pigsty in there and I have avoided it like the plague. My laundry situation is sooo bad that i dare not attempt any other huge projects for the time being. DH has finally started helping though so maybe we'll get things done faster. I'm sooo ready to have this place in tip-top shape so I can try to enjoy the end of this pg in case it's my last and even if it's not.
