  • I did at about 38 weeks. I washed and had my SO and one of his friends rearrange furniture so that I could get every thing else in place.

  • yes! with my first, I cleaned, and i'm sure i went through my hospital bag about 50 times each day!!! I went through her clothes and made sure I had all NB up to 3months in the closet, and the rest put away. had to make everything was washed, i did this stuff about 50 times lol no joke.

    with my second, i didn't do much because i have sciatica and it was better to sit down and rest. but one thing i did do non stop is get all her clothes together in order like my first, and go through my hospital bag a million times.

  • I say that I didnt.....DH says I did lol. He told me that when I just had to clean the baseboards in DS's room about 20 times and would vacume 4 times a day mop at least twice a day and would start a load of laundry if there was nothing else for me to do....even if the laundry i was doing was already clean lol.....I even changed the set up of DS's room about 20 times before he got here...and it ended up the same way i started at lol....Not sure when it started...but it had to be before ds got here and I had him at 34 around 30 weeks i guess.....DH told me he was afraid to mess anything up hahahaha

  • I cleaned my house like CRAZY every surface imaginable! I was so convinced I would be exhausted & have no time to clean house once the baby arrived & I kept imagining my house in shambles with relatives frequenting through. Yikes!

  • I cooked and cleaned like a crazy person. I made so many cookies it was a little bit frightening! I scrubs walls and floors and my house looked the best it had my entire pregnancy.
