  • It's the nesting reaction, where all of a sudden you feel energized and want to scrub everything in sight and get ready for the baby, it can be a sign that labor is coming, but it can still be days or weeks away!

  • I did with both of my children - I remeber getting excited with my daughter because about a week before she was born I was like that, she was born last New years Eve at 38 weeks :-)

    With my son, I didn't know what anything was since he was my 1st child
