Nesting?

I've been on this cleaning frenzy all day. I've washed the baby clothes, scrubbed the bassinet, cleaned my room, cleaned the kitchen, vacuumed the steps, sterilized the baby bottles, scrubbed all the surfaces... I'm running out of things to do, and I still don't feel like I've done enough, and am ready to start all over. This is nesting, right? Have any of you guys experienced this? How far along were you? How long after you started nesting did you go into labor? This is my first pregnancy, so I'm completely new to everything.

Oh yes. I've always been like that between about 28-36 weeks. Then I got so huge and tired I didn't want to do anything except sit, eat, and sleep. I went 11 days past due date with my first and was induced 5 days early and 2 days early with my 2nd and 3rd.

Yes mam! Sounds like me..but its coming in batches like not everyday but there will be times where I get really crazy about cleaning and my hubby thinks Im nuts..now Im so uncomfortable its hard luckily he has been super helpful. I will be 36 weeks on sunday. This is our first baby. I still need to sterilize the bottles. We are also starting the nursery on sunday..my sisters had to move in unexpectedly back in sept so now that they can actually move I finally get to start. We atleast have a bassinette in our room in case we dont get done and he comes early or something.

Very normal!! I'd say I went through it at the end of my second trimster/beginning of the third? the first time around. Right now I'm half way and it hasn't kicked in too bad yet. It has for DH though! HE'S the one bugging ME that we need to get stuff done around here!!

Never had it with my first or second. With my third from 6 months and on I was constantly cleaning and a lot of it was most likely because we were having a home birth.

My first pregnancy, it could be said that I "nested" the entire time :) 

This time, it's off and on.  I'm past 40 weeks right now and the energy ebbs and flows.

I didn't nest with my sons, but I am with this pregnancy. I'm 38 weeks now and it started about two weeks ago. I cannot stop cleaning and organizing! If the house is completely clean then I find something to rearrange. By the time that's done, my 3 year old has made another mess and I get started on that. My DH is enjoying it since normally I'm quite a slob lol.

I experienced it ALL the time! I started nesting around 30 weeks, and I had my DD at 40 weeks exactly
