So I think I've been nesting for at least a week - a few key highlights: getting up at 5 am because I had to make sure we had enough cleaning supplies and then proceeded to spend almost $100 on cleaning supplies because I was so worried we would run out. Then I cleaned so many parts of our house that have never been cleaned since we moved in and now...I'm up at past 12:30 in the morning! I shockingly wasn't tired at 9:30ish like I normally am(I even went on an hour and a half walk today) and so I stayed up till 11 and figured I must be tired, go to bed and start freaking out about needing to re-organize the fridge which took like 5 minutes.

Now I'm up just working on work stuff ( I have this project that I'm worried about getting done well and was also freaking out about how I was going to work on it once the baby comes) and obviously being on the internet.

How long does this nesting last? until the baby comes? Or will I have some sort of respite?

DP freaks out every time because he wakes up and I'm not there so he thinks I'm in labor somewhere in the house (I wish!) and then no, I"m just being incredibly weird and random.

I can't say our house is sparkly clean or anything, I have just sort of become OCD about certain things. The thing I didn't expect about nesting, if this is what it is, is the random bouts of energy - getting up at 5? and the fact I'm still up now and not tired at will I be rested for the baby?

Holy Nesting, Batman!

I think nesting is personal. Some people don't. Some people do occasionally. Some people do all the time.

So, my bottom line answer - Who knows!!!!

Hopefully you'll be holding your babe soon in your clean clean CLEAN home!
