    I had always thought that the idea of getting a strong nesting urge was an old wives tale-and until now I've been anti-nesting really, more than happy to have an excuse to leave the housework -blame free!

    However over the last few days I've been acting a bit peculiar :shock: I couldn't rest til my hospital bag was packed and repacked- on waking in the night I've been considering bits of cleaning, now I've just bleached and re-ordered the entire kitchen! It's really, really not like me one bit.

    Has anyone else experienced this??? Also does it mean labour is iminent????

    I have heard from a few people that it's perfectly normal. My mum said a few days before she had me she started moving furniture and repainting the walls :D I'm not sure if it means you are iminent but it definately means that it's going to happen soon.

    I wouldn't say I have the nesting instinct..I'll have a go at cleaning the bathroom but only because I love the smell of the cleaner..once the smell of it is on my hands I'll leave my OH to finish it..like I've just done :D
