How long did you nest b4 baby was born?

My mom seems to think that since I have started nesting that I will have this baby in a week. I disagree... My son didnt come until 40 weeks and 2 days. I have a feeling that this baby will be earlier than that but not by too much. I am hoping for between 38-39 weeks. I am 36 weeks now.

I dont remember nesting with DS, so I cant remember how long I did it for. But I know that I have been like this for at leat a week if not two.

Monday- I decide to call and get a haircut for me AND the dog. Cleaned EVERYTHING including blinds and baseboards, washed a load of baby clothes

Tuesday-on a whim went to school (i was on springbreak) and packed up my classroom although I was not due for another 4 weeks, but thought I should do it while I still felt good and had extra time off.

Wednesday - water broke at exactly 36weeks

Was induced 1 week past due - thank goodness - baby was quite big for me and midwife thinks any bigger may have presented issues.

I took off 3 weeks before my due date and had NOTHING to do. Okay. Not nothing. Just cleaned UNDER the fridge and everywhere else. If I could have I would have rearranged the garage. Oh. Forgot. I did rearrange our entire bedroom the week before.

Re: How long did you nest b4 baby was born?

I always take down my Christmas decorations on New Year's Day. Last year, I couldn't stop myself... I HAD to take them down Dec 29. It was like something just came over me, and I went around the house in a whirlwind and got everything down and put away. I went into labor the next day and had my baby New Year's Eve phew! I'm so glad I got everything put away before she came home, because I was TOOOOO exhausted to have done it once she was home!

I started to nest at 36 week, our baby was born at 42. That last week was the longest week of my life! This past 6 months have been the fastest! Go figure!!

I start nesting months before the baby comes. I think it got earlier with each child. The more children you have the more of a need to have things done, and ready for the new baby.
