Am I nesting?

Granted I have been getting contractions since this morning. I had to go in for a NST and the monitor was picking them up, but not regular, but the nurse was like "I bet you can feel those." So the OB today told me to drink fluid and lay it low. She wanted me to rest laying down. I am very uncomfortable laying down. Though I am also in this mood where I cannot stay still. Everything is irritating me. I have to have my house cleaned. So I did a few dishes, and vacuumed for the 3rd time this week, did some new baby wash and cleaned my kitchen counters again. I just feel I need to have the house orderly in case I go into labor. I did rest today as well. Crazy? I never really went through the nesting stage with first two. I just cannot stay still.

  • Sounds like you're nesting. I hope the bag is packed! Keep the hubby close by, because it sounds like labor is near! Good luck!

  • lol @ Bearsjen.... There are days where I feel the same!

    OP, YES, that's definitely nesting.... and WOW at how close these babies are going to be if you just had one in February! I had my son January 24th, and I actually think I may be prego again now... I'll be testing in the next few days, and I'm wondering how in the world I'll do it with them being 18 months or so apart..... I can't imagine less than a year apart!?! I agree with everyone else.... Keep the bag by the door & the hubby nearby! Good luck & congrats! : )

  • I would say so! I didnt nest with my first and feel I want to be mroe organized with this one, but no energy to put into it. More power to you! I wish I was a super mom right now.

  • Sounds like it. With my first baby I did grocery shopping, bagged the meat and dated it. So unlike me! I didn't realize until the next day that it was nesting. Cool, huh?

  • LovinEveryDay you are a super mom as well.... my last one I didn't have energy, and with this one I do not have a lot, I just feel I have to do it.
