  • with my first pregnancy I was about 25weeks and with my second I swear I started when my second trimester started but that could just have been how I was feeling

  • I'm 19 weeks. My husband and his friends are joking that I'm already nesting (maybe i am?) because they came in and I had the power tools out and was drilling holes into the wall to hang new towel rods in the bathroom, and building new shelves for the baby's room closet. Also I spent the entire evening yesterday hanging paintings and photos all over the house. Wow, now that i think about it, hubby may be correct!

  • I nested starting in the 2nd trimester...........then i lost my urge until recently around 32 weeks. Nesting has never been a sign that baby would be here soon for me, it's just my personality to want things to be in order

  • I started around 28 weeks. The night we hung his name on the wall (the finishing touch) I went into labor. He can on his exact due date. I joke saying that he knew his room was finished so he was ready to join the family.
