My self control is completely gone. I am in nesting mode 24/7 now. When I'm too tired to clean or organize something, I'm thinking about cleaning and organizing. I have been nesting big time since my 2nd trimester since I am super excited (and also because I am kind of scared of birth and this is something I can control and use to distract myself from fear) but in the last few days I have been really out of control. I am compulsively doing stuff. Like this morning I woke up at 3:30 am and felt like I HAD to cook. I have been cleaning everything that will hold still and cooking constantly. I have washed and folded and hung up all her baby clothes, and then refolded and reorganized her dresser several times. I also have a pile of clothes and accessories for her first pictures and to bring her home from the hospital that I keep going through. I still haven't decided what I want to dress her in to leave the hospital or have her first photos in.
Is anyone else doing this? Does it feel like an uncontrollable urge to you? Also I'd like to know from anyone who has been through this before, how long before your labor started did you start feeling the incredible urge to nest, nest, nest? I know I shouldn't be thinking about labor yet because its too early but I am SO ready, and any signs of getting closer would be nice!
