I don't know why but since the day I found out I was pregnant I have been obsessed with cleaning my house. For the last 4 days I have been cleaning and scrubbing from top to bottom, literally everything from the floorboards to the walls to the floors are spotless. I've also been decluttering because I want to have the bare minimum of things we need in this house with 6 people going to be living in it, I hate clutter and it drives me nuts when there are just things everywhere. Of course I am exhausted but I keep plugging away at it.

Anyone else?

Nope. Took everything I had in me to drag myself off the couch to pick up the kids toys tonight. I sure hope I can get some nesting energy over here.

Yep, I've been doing some cleaning and a whole lot of canning. I keep working and working and next thing I know it's time for bed. I keep telling myself if I get all my tomatoes, relishes, and peppers canned and put up my husband can help make easy meals when the baby arrives and I'm busy adjusting motherhood.

Yes, but I haven't been able to do near what I want to do because we're not even sure if we are going to be living here much longer. We're in a 2 bedroom apartment and are seriously squished in. Either I buy a ton of rubbermaid totes and transfer a ton of stuff to downstairs in the basement (which is unfinished and smelly) or we move. Problem is if we move it'd have to be into a rented house and who knows how much that's going to cost. We have a couple prospects in sight... just waiting to hear back so we can make our decision.

So my nesting is really put on hold even though my mind is a whirlwind of ideas about what I *could* be doing. Probably a good thing since I'd probably hurt myself doing things like taking the boys bunk bed apart and rearranging every room in our house

Yes, I am decluttering as well. And yesterday I just HAD to make a cover for my birth ball. Better do it all now while I still can!

I'm already somewhat of a nester, I can't imagine the psychosis I'm going to achieve in about 8 months...

I have been totally obsessed with decluttering too!!!! We are probably moving in December to be closer to our jobs... but I can't stop!! Plus, I figure cleaning and getting rid of stuff now will make things easier when we move

I have been. I get spurts where I try to declutter full force before I have to go rest again Yesterday I went through some drawers and started a pile of clothing for the Salvation Army. Tonight I plan to go through some more. I figure if I tackle a little very day it will be easier. I also tend to procrastinate so I don't want to be 9 months pregnant and cleaning out closets and drawers.
