So I stay up till 1 am cleaning, and ended up coming down with a cold that I knew I would have fought off if I had been resting more. And now my blood pressure is going up because I'm not resting as much as I was before.

But I don't think it will be bringing labor on for me. I think I'll be delivering closer to my EDD which is still 2 weeks away.

I did end up buying a turkey to freeze with stuffing for post partum meals. And I bought containers for the freezer. And a week later, we threw the leftovers out, because neither I nor DH had the gumption to take the meat off the carcass and freeze the dam* stuff. Gah. What a waste. At least we got a few nights meals out of it. :/
And I am NOT someone who likes to clean. I just suddenly NEED everything to be really clean.

I figure I'll do those tasks on the weekend, and just try to keep them tidy in between, as "clean" is out of the realm of possibility with three children home all day and my spouse working from home. Oh, well!

This is me exactly! The only problem is that I've been doing this every night for about the past 8 days, and still labor hasn't started... so I think maybe I'm jinxing myself. I should go to bed and leave the house a mess, then I'm sure this baby will decide to come, lol.
