Sudden boost of energy and insomnia...sign of labor coming soon or just a myth?

I'm 35 weeks and the past few nights I have not been able to sleep, I have lots of energy and the intense urge to clean and organize EVERYTHING.

My grandma says its a sign of labor coming soon...was this the case for any of you or is that just a myth?

  • I cleaned like crazy for 3 days before I went into labor!
    You're "nesting"

  • Nesting. Preparing for baby.

  • Some ladies "nest" early, some later...some not at all (as is MY case, I've NEVER nested with any of my kids).

  • It's a myth. Of course labor is coming soon you only have a few weeks left. Now all that cleaning can irritate the uterus and cause contractions to start. That doesn't necessarily mean labor though.
