How many of you mamas nested before labour?
And how much before your baby came did you start?

I nested for about two weeks before my oldest was born, I don't remember nesting with my middle ddr, and I nested for over a month with my youngest but never went into labor.

When i was pregnant with my son I started nesting around 7 months. Lol and it was bad! I'm talkin down on hands and knees scrubbin nooks and crannies of the kitchen floor with a toothbrush! I'm about 16 weeks pregnant now and already caught the nesting bug but its more organization than deep cleaning so far

I went through "nesting" at least twice with each of my 3 boys. My third was the worst I think though lol the third time I went through nesting I woke up at 1:30 am after only 1 1/2 hours of sleep and couldn't go back to sleep I had such a horrible NEED to clean, and I mean, totally clean everything. I scrubbed floors, washd walls, scrubbed the stove and the whole bathroom lol the only things I could stop myself from doing was pulling out the stove and fridge and vacuuming. But I didn't go back to sleep, I couldn't... and I had an appointment 1 1/2 hours away from home that I had to be to by 11am. On the drive there I just felt weird so I called my nurseline to see if maybe I hurt myself with my stupidness or what she told me to go to the hospital I planned on delivering at and be checked out. Being I wasn't in pain and had just pulled up at my appointment I went in did my hour in there and left there at noon.

15 mins later I had a pretty good contraction and they were steady every 5-7 mins, I happened to be on the phone with my BF and told him to bring the baby stuff with him to work I thought maybe it was time (hadn't gone into labor on my own before) but I also thought maybe it was braxton hicks cuz I had to pee really bad. I stopped at a gas station and went but they continued all the way home. :) I called my BF's sis (she was taking my 2 boys when it was time for #3 to come) and warned her it might be time I would call her in a little while and let her know. Got home packed bags for us all had a meet and greet with DS#1's new PCA and about 5 pm I said, OK it's time for us to go. She was awesome lol helped me load the bags and kids in the car. Checked into the hospital at 9 pm about 10 mins after the first real uncomfortable contraction. At 9:15 I was at a 2 to maaaaybe 3 at 10:10pm I was at a 4 and about to punch someone from the pain (they were slow getting to my epidural) He was out at 10:21 pm...no epidural    So..moral of that long story lol don't push yourself too hard when you are nesting, do what you can to hold back cuz you could bring on labor. I was lucky I was just barely full term.

Oh and I just had my first round of nesting with this baby a couple nights ago lol I had to force myself to sit and take breaks, I'm only 25 weeks. :) My BF cussed me out pretty good when he found out I only slept 2 hours that night ... nice cussing tho lol not mean stressful kind.
