Nesting

When does this kick in?? Its just sonce I've been off I've had no desire whatsoever to do ANY housework (including the pots!!) Today has seen me scrubbing the bathroom, fixing the toilet (it made a slight noise when you flushed it) washing everything in sight (today I've done 6 loads of washing, including our duvet) hoovering, scrubbing the kitchen including cupboards and fridge and being on my hands and knees scrubbing the floor, polishing and generally dettoxing anything in sight!!

Is this normal this early?? I'm sat here eying up the cat for a bath now!!

LOL!! She is nasty and vicious so maybe I will put her in to see if she changes temperament to be like your cat!! She is water obsessed, and sits on the side of the bath and sleeps in the sink. When she was little though she fell in the toilet and wasn't too impressed when I dunked her in the bath to get the germs off!

I would pop round hun, but you are some way away!! :D

Yes sam it's normal :D

My hubby got up one morning to find me scrubbing the bathroom door (note not just the handle but the entire door) with bleach. :D


I'm generally not a tidy person but if it wasn't breathing I cleaned it.


It was even worse with the second as I knew that I would have midwives in my house, possibly for a long time and that they would be moving furniture and getting into funny positions. I knew that if I didn't clean round the back of my loo I was bound to be one of those people who delivers in the bathroom and my plumbing would be under close scrutiny :D.... in both senses!!!! :D

My best friend at the time was an extendible vacuum hose with a crevice nozzle 8o 8o :D

:D funny you mention this sam - I'm doing "nesting by management"

I know I shouldnt take the piss and I am trying not to, but for the last 8 months DH has only been vaguely interested in helping me out.

the scare yesterday, and now he cant do enough! so for m, it's a case of "darling, would you do ......"
"darling, would you throw out....."
"darling, ......."

saying that, I am defrosting the fridge/freezer - which is a terrible mess - thank god the maid comes in tomorrow!

i cried my eyes out cos dh wouldnt let me clean the skirting board behind the wardrobes, the fact that they weighed about 5 stone each, and he couldnt move them was his reason! but quite francly it wasnt good enough! so i cried for about 2 hrs!
seemed a completly reasonable request at the time! poor dh! :D

Lol chilli :D It's perfectly reasonable to put his stuff into a bin bag and leave it on the lawn. It wouldn't have been so bad if he's forgotten part of his OWN order but OH NO!!!! he has to forget yours ;( ;( ;( ....and how are you supposed to eat an indian without rice? He's just RUINED your whole day and you'll probably even starve to death now too X( X( ;(

I never really had my nesting instinct hun, I just kind of went on a mad spree the day after I got back!!

So glad i spent half an hour tidying the house up before i tried all those myths!! one of them must've worked!!

Not long to go now Sam and Sunshine! i will be thinking of you both!

Just think when you're in the bath afterwards and you can hear all the women on the ward giving birth, smile to yourself and think 'thank goodness I'm on this side now!!' :D

hmmmmm

does this count?

we got the day off work today as a public holiday

so..... doing what every sane woman does...!?!

I got up at 8:30am, checked my email, found a great one from a headhunter agency! :D

then dragged DH out of bed around 11am to go to the shops

then used fresh 9 carrots, 12 oranges, and 1 pineapple and a juicer machine to make:
* carrot & orange juice
* pineapple & orange juice

then used some ripe bananas that had spent too long in the sun (ie throw out or cook with stage) to make banana & chocolate fudge ripple ice-cream (from fresh ingredients).

THEN (!) spent the afternoon baking and made 18 (minus the three that have already been eaten ;) ) chocolate cherry muffins from a Nigella Lawson recipe book - v v v v yummy

This is NOT normal behaviour for me I hasten to add. On a good weekend I might possibly do one of the above activities.

Question: am I nesting?! :rolleyes: :D

sam - I'm a bit of a weirdo when it comes to readymade.

I know I have a maid to cook for me on occasions, and she also cleans the chaos that is the kitchen afterwards, so life is easier in that way.

but..... I do like knowing what goes into my food - ever since we've been ttc I've tried to make sure that we minimise the amount of additives etc that we eat.

I will eat baked beans and sausages and pasta and things, as these are really hard to make from fresh.

it's just for curries and main meals and desserts I like to make from fresh, as (a) you know what goes in (b) you dont waste because it is a bit of an effort to make the food (c) it just tastes so much nicer (d) it's generally not that difficult to do once you get the hang of it.

the trick is a well stocked larder, lots of gadgets, and someone (or something - eg dishwasher machine) else to do the washing up! ;) :D

I think I am nesting already and I am scared! it's too soon surely..................

I started by sorting my drawers out, then went on to pulling out the whole bedroom and cleaning EVERYTHING, i then started on the airing cupboard and threw out loads of stuff, WASHED and dried all the stuff I wanted to keep IRONED..... YES IRONED 8o ?( it all and put it back!

Just done the bathroom cupboards (I am a sucker for Boots and superdrug!) and now I feel like I have done 10 rounds with Mike tyson. I have already planned my cleaning day for tomorrow if I can move!

Or it may not be nesting it could possibly be that my mum is arriving on friday and if you think that woman off of how clean is your house is a dragon you've never met my mum ..............(only when it comes to cleaning though :D) she'll still manage to find something

I am seriously nesting!!! We decided we needed new internal doors, so I made sure it was done asap ( today!!). I have washed and ironed all the baby's things. Started cleaning the house from top to bottom. Built furniture, nagging the people we are getting the bits we haven't got yet trying to get it delivered!!!

I feel so disorganised compared to you guys --- hospital bag!!! i've not even thought about that yet. We have painted the nursery (at the weekend) and that's it. DH is off to France to work next week and possibly the week after so there is not going to be much done re. cot building etc for the next couple of weeks - you guys start to scare me when you seem so organised --- please stop it!!!

Most things are done here, haven't done the hospital bag either (you're not on your own Elaine!) or started my birth plan 8o

I have most of my clothes ready but they need to be washed, my brother has the cot but we need a mattress for it but as we're probably using the carrycot from the travel system or a travel cot in our room for the first few weeks I'm not panicking yet (our room is in the loft & Bee's room is on the 1st floor so not entirely practical to ahve him/her in the nursery to begin with :()

There's an NCT sale near us on Saturday so I'm going to pop along & see what we can pick up there before making our final purchases. Nursery needs a few bits & bobs but the main decor is done so don't need to worry about that either!

it's a nearly new sale, baby/toddler/childrens clothes, toys, cots, maternity clothes, nursery equipment etc. Some of the stuff will ahve hardly been used, a friend of mine went when her first was a few months old & she kitted her out for about 6 months on about £30!

Some of the nursery equipment may also be hardly used, sterilisers etc & maybe breast pumps (I would want to buy new bottles though), baby monitors - all sorts of stuff!

If you visit the NCT website there is a link for activities in your area, give me a mo & I'll see if I can find it for you :D

Sorry for scaring people with organisation, but we have a history of early labours in our family, particularly with Girls. We have also been told that is looks and sounds like Rhiannon has her head in my pelvis now, but won't find out for sure until next week.

Keep thoses legs crossed Saz!!

I was organising and re-organising everything from quite an early stage too, but it was only when I got on my hands and knees to scrub the kitchen floor and hoovered the ceiling did I realise!!

Bagpuss and Chilli, those NCT sales are highly recommended! I've only just found our local one, but I will be popping along on the off chance that there is something left that I need!! :D You cannot move in my house for Laurens stuff!

I have had loads of Bh's in the last few days. Painful too!! I was getting them all day Sunday, every 20 mins or so. They have eased a bit now, but still getting them every hour or so. Apparently, the midwife I spoke to last night said I should have gone in on Sunday!!
