I am so anxious to meet my new baby girl...

I have been on my feet cleaning house and doing laundry for two days now, I am so ready to have this baby, Can I hurt myself or the baby by being up so much, especially if im already having pains and feeling lots of pressure?

  • Lots of women go through this clean house phase before giving birth. I think you'll be okay, just remember not to over extend or bend to deeply. I am very excited for you.

  • No, it seems like you're nesting and that is normal.

  • it's nesting and it's normal but i would encourage you to save your energy for after the baby comes. When i became over excited or anxious i would write my son letters. It didn't require much effort and it will be a nice gift for him to have when he gets older

  • That is actually very sweet, maybe I should write her a letter, Should I put that in the baby book?
