QOTW: did you nest the first time around (or second)?
Sadly no. IF robbed me of that phase. I was EXTREMELY paranoid and superstitious. Friends would try to give me baby item hand me downs and I would accept the offer but would have them keep the stuff until after delivery. In fact- if you had walked in my house during my second or early third trimester there was zero sign a baby was even on the way. One day- I decided to stock up on diapers but when I finally bought them I broke down crying and hid them out of sight.
And then, because my son came 5 weeks early- he came before my baby shower. So when he was born we had NOTHING.
My dad bought us a co sleeper and my mom painted the room while I was in the hospital. People brought us necessary gifts to the hospital and I had my baby shower 2 weeks post partum.
I learned that really you don't need a lot for a new baby lol. But I also hit my nesting phase belated and while recovering from a c-section.
But I've heard funny stories about the nesting phase.
