So last night after my relaxing bath and TWO cups of sleepytime tea...I got the urge to nest! : So I "mildly nested" (is that possible?) cleaning only PART of the bathroom before forcing myself to go to bed.

Do you think I went to sleep? NOOOOOOOOO! I tossed and turned all night half awake wondering if that meant I was going to have dd that night...and if so should I get up and finish cleaning b/c it wasn't all done but no it's 2am I need to sleep - and then I would doze and dream about - NESTING!!

I have been a major nester off and on throughout this whole pregnancy. It's crazy, but I guess it's served me well because we are putting our house on the market in about a week!! :

Wow - you are brave mama!!!

I'm glad to hear you have been nesting a lot though - I gave in and MAJORLY nested tonight (everything's vacuumed, living room COMPLETELY rearranged, garage sale stuff pulled out) - but still don't want to go into labor quite yet! :

I got the nesting urge this week, just about the time some friends dropped off a truckload of baby stuff I just had to sort through before going to bed (what a late night!!). I've been cleaning and cooking up dishes for the freezer all week. Wish I had my own washing machine so I could do the four loads of laundry I have waiting, so I could finally feel finished and ready for baby! (I use my MIL's next door, but I think she's getting tired of me coming over and using it...)

I hear you!! I just keep thinking in my mind "oh but this isn't done yet!" Tonight though - I must admit I'm on strike! I'm posting, reading some of a novel and going to bed! (If I can keep my eyes off ANYTHING needing cleaning that is!)

Aaaahhhh nesting fun!

Have been nesting - {due date is today}...

But- its really useful because we are moving this week! So -putting things away and cleaning the baseboards works well for right now Good god I hope the house we end up in feels "sterile" enough- I don't think I want to "sterilize" anouther house next week!

/sterilize: I can be weird about certain things being clean- really clean- or another favorite word is "contaminated".. - so I am just jabbing about being 'anal'
