Anyone else go though this?

Has anyone else gone though a stage where all they want to do is clean? I heard that it can be a sign of labor, I'm just wondering if that's true and if anyone has experienced it and if so how long was it before you went into labor?

  • I have been going through that, and did with both of my other pregnancies. I believe that they call it nesting. Unfortunately, none of mine has ever lead to labor. I am also hoping that this one isn't an early sign, since I am only 32 weeks.
    I believe it is just your motherly instinct kicking in, and your body trying to help you get everything ready for when the time comes.
    Best of Luck to you! Congrats on the upcoming arrival!

  • I started doing it when I was 30 weeks, and I'm currently 38 and haven't gone into labor yet. It's called "nesting" You're motherly instincts are beginning, and you want to be ready and prepared for when Baby gets here :)
