A little while ago this was a topic. I thought that 1. I was too tired to nest. 2. That you girls must be superheroes. Yesterday was insane! My house wasn't horrible, but I would be embarrassed if someone would drop in. My whole main level was deep..deep..deep cleaned. I was moving all the dang furniture (thank god for hardwood floors), getting spider webs that seem to disappear and reappear again at the drop of a hat, moving the toaster oven, microwave, arranging and rearranging my wine cart, making sure every darn spot was off my tile flooring, washing my screens for the windows. After 5 1/2 hours, my main floor was finally done. There are a few things I want to do yet, but I just had to stop yesterday. I was moving so much in the groove of things, I was getting frequent braxton hick contractions. Upstairs is going to be easier... All carpet.. Except my bathroom.
me! we move on Friday and I have never been so organized/prepared for a move! I want everything to be perfect. Now hopefully I will still have energy to unpack and organize in the new house as well. I've also been having frequent braxton hicks, which is interesting as I didnt have them at all last pregnancy.
I have been nesting for a while but with lifestyle you never notice. I have to do the whole thing every night lol. I am still sorting crap from the first 14 weeks of pregnancy as that had me on my knees lol.
I've had two portrait sessions to work on, so I've let everything slide. But yes the urge is definitely there. I've had to fight myself not to go mop the floors, vacuum, rearrange this or that. It always seems to be little things that would never matter to me any other time! I don't have your dedication though!
I guess I am nesting now. After I finished the nursery and cleaned out my closets, I ended up vacuuming the lamp shades and blinds. While doing so I think I was like "yup...nesting has begun". Today I am tackling the kitchen cabinets and such.
i think if i wasnt on bedrest i would be nesting cause i cant stop thinking about all the things i need to do.. i sometime cant sleep because my mind is running wild with what i need to do ... i get off bedrest at 36 weeks and when i do i know i going to be going crazy with all i have to do ,, hubby think as soon as i get off of bedrest im going to go into labor casuse im going to try to do to much .. i just hope i have the engery
My husband goes into a 15hour work day for bar exam tomorrow. I had a huge list of stuff all weekend. Im not close to being ready. Now I can see what I have and what I need to replace. I threw out all baby girl clothes.
I already went through my major "deep clean and organizing" nesting phase. So I'm on a break. lol
I'm gearing up for the second phase, though. It's not here yet, but probably in a few weeks I'll get started. Getting car seat ready. Getting bassinet ready. Buying the final few things I need (Boppy, monitor, nursing cover). In another month I'll start freezing meals.
I have a 32-week scan in two weeks. Once I get that done, I'll feel a lot more comfortable about buying those last few things.
Sorta but not really. I am starting to feel the stress about everything I have left to do but I don't reallyhave the eenergy (or money) to do much about it. I have been doing sone cleaning but it isn't perfect. Mostly, I'm just starting to stress out.
