ok, so im cleaning the house every day to the point that my back can no longer cope with the pain. when im no longer able to walk i watch my son and husband make the place dirty again and i have never felt so stressed in my life watching this happen. im screaming  and crying when i see dirt. my sons friends walk in the house with their shoes on and i need to hide in the bathroom to calm myself down. 


my relationship with my husband is strained because of how stressed this is making me. the other night i kept him awake till 2am because i had to get every bit of dust out of the bedroom and en-suite before i could sleep. 

this is nesting to the extreme. 


has anyone else suffered from this? past or present? and does it mean something? im 25 weeks today, i hope it doesn't mean im going into labour soon.

I have been nesting. Not till the wee hours but yes I have trying to house clean. I don't know if it is baby or just the holidays.


Hang in there.

have you tried talking to your DH and DS about it? It sounds like they need to respect the work that you put into the house and at least clean up after themselves.

Married to DH 7 years and have three fantastic kiddos! DS 6, DD 4, and DS 2 ...... lo and behold another is on the way!
