  • I started nesting at around 6 months. I wasn't a big neat freak, either, but when Jake was born, I developed OCD about everything being clean.

  • Geezz, come to my house! I'm 31 weeks and haven't REALLY nested. I did wash all the baby clothes and did things like that but as for cleaning the whole house.... nope! Not yet anyways.

  • Ya I did that off and on with my first, I would have to say it started at around 5 months.
