I wanna DO something ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!! grrrrrrrr I hate not having anything to do right now I can't even read a book cause I know all of mine by heart.... I need to buy some new ones.....

  • Yes, that's it! Doesn't it feel good?! You could make some dinners to freeze for after the baby comes.

  • I never nested with any of my 5 kids, but I didn't think it was supposed to start until closer to the end.

  • I think so. I felt the nesting just before my baby was born. Had a burst of energy out of nowhere.. like you sayy so funny same thing happened to me . I Started polishing the furniture.. I have heard a few woman say they are nesting at like 3 months I think to myself " No wayyy" but everyone is different I think it kicked in most for me when I realized there was about 4 or 5 weeks left and I hadn't done a thing. haha But then once things were done. I was bored and was done with work. I started playing Farmville on Facebook. Lame in know. How about buying a deck of cards?

  • Some people go through the nesting thing and others don't. And if you do (which it sounds like you are) it can happen any time during your pregnancy. For me, I pretty much did it the WHOLE time. I drove my DH nuts.
