  • You canrt nest on purpose or it isnt nesting. Nesting is an instinct and i believe it comes in the third trimester. Mine did. I was pulling out the washer and dryer and oven to scrub under them at 2 am

  • For me, the nesting thing came kind of naturally. I didnt expect to clean out the silverware drawer, it just happened that day. Nesting comes when it comes and it is a curious beast at that. Oh my if I could only go back to that nesting phase with growing teens I could get so much more done

  • I would say a boucy vibrating chair, bottles (not many but a few if you are nursing), pacifires, blankets, swing and that is really all I bounced back and forth on :)

    I barely used the swing too lol. Oh stroller and carseat. :)

  • when I nest, it seems to come and go, but it really starts to hit in the last month where I need to do everything lol.

  • NEVER did I ever have a nesting urge. I quit my job a month before the EDD and bought things for baby. That's about it.

  • nesting, whats that?j/k... i never hit that with my first 2 i'm really hoping that it hits me hard this time. God knows my house could use it. As far as things that you need when baby gets here, diapers, wipes, onsies, sleepers, burp clothes, blankets, and bottles and formula if you're not nursing. I neveer used all the fancy toys in the first few weeks.
