  • I nested from my 6th month on..... most of the time they myth, yes its a myth, says that you will begin nesting right before you go into labor...

  • Do a belly cast; it takes 24 -48 hours to dry, but then you can decorate it; paint it, get creative; it takes up a lot of time :)

  • I'm 29 weeks and I'm just starting to nest =3 It's not full-blown "ZOMG THE BABY'S ALMOST HERE CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN!" nesting yet, but I think it'll become that in the next month or so, haha xD

  • I slept.. never really nested. I kept getting overwhelmed by all the stuff that needed to be done. i cleaned because I knew my family was visiting, and I went into labor 12 hours later.

  • I hate to tell you that I did all my nesting about a month before I went into labor. It seemed like it was that way with both pregnancies. I hope it happens for you soon though! Good luck and labor dust! I know it sucks to wait!

  • Hmmm. The month before makes alot of sense. I am almost 31 weeks and just starting nesting today. =)
