  • I washed as I bought things. Once they were put away, I knew that I didn't have to bother with them again until they got dirty from the baby.

  • Like 37 weeks lol. I never really got the whole "nesting" thing. In fact, I was pretty non-chalant about getting everything ready. But in the end it was all done in time.

  • I nested and had everything ready as much as I possibly could probably a month or 2 before my babies were born. By the time they were here the nesting was done and so far overwith that the house was trashed again. Oh well. I drove around with carseats installed in the car for probably a month before my babies were born. My first baby was 2 weeks early, by the third I felt like I was being more reasonable and waited a lot longer. THen he ended up being 2 weeks late, so I had everything ready for him a month early anyway and drove around with an empty carseat for a month again.

  • With my first before we had her. With my second and third. We had everything washed, but waited on everything else till they came.

  • I didn't start having the nesting period until I was already in labor. Awake all day and night cleaning like crazy with my back hurting and not realizing I was in labor lol
