    LOL, talk about neurotic!!!! I have become obsessed with cleaning! Nesting sounds so nice but to be making a cup of tea and after getting a teaspoon out you end up emptying the whole cutlery drawer, hoovering, washing it and then replacing all the cutlery cause you just washed that too! lol

    Better than being a minger I suppose! lol

    i was originally pleased when cleaning frenzy finally kicked in - but like v11kae i have become worse than monica off friends!! spent 2 hours yesterday cleaning the bathroom - an our bathroom is tiny - it doesnt even have a bath! - just a shower cubicle - which i proceeded to clean inside and out with cillit bang - and then dry the flipping thing with a towel! :roll:
    have also done more stoopid things, like clean the kitchen sink out - an then polish it dry with a chamois leather! and i think there is now a packet of anti bac wipes in every room of the house!

    poor boyf only has to take of a pair of socks and i have another wash on the go and i too have made a cup of tea before now and filled the washing up bowl to wash the one teaspoon i have used!

    does this last or does it stop with the birth? hehehehe

    Jadie it all sounds perfectly normal nesting.

    I was terrible before I had my first, I would sort sort and sort through the babys things, moving things and convinced i would be mega organised when I had baby.

    Of course none of that happened but had a lovely clean house when came home with baby lol

    You keep going hunny xx

    I am absoultly desperate to nest. I have managed to get some done today. I have been given some avent bottles so I thought I would wash them and put them in the cupboard - ready for sterilising if I dont breastfeed.

    Yesterday I made O/H help me with the cleaning (it had not been done properly for 3 weeks due to my fall) so every room got a good clean - god it felt good after to see it all clean and tidy!

    So today I took all the settee covers off to wash, did the bottles, cleaned out the fireplace and restocked with paper, wood and coal, did 3 lots of washing and 2 lots of putting away. I also updated my list of things to do before the baby gets here.

    Quite proud of myself though cos I am struggling to do anything due to the fall and now the massive swollen ankles and feet I have. I actaully took a pic of them on my phone tonight to send to my mate to prove I wasnt exagerating how bad they are! I have to stop every 20 minutes or so to rest my legs and get my breath back - but it is sooo great to see the house getting really clean and tidy ready for LO arrival!

    I am starting to feel constantly irritable, I am really uncomfortable so even going up and down the stairs is unpleasant but I am desperate to clean and tidy!!

    My Mum and Sister are coming here on saturday and between us we are spending the day cleaning the house from top to bottom which I am really looking forward to as I know I don't have the energy to do it all myself. The kids are off to my Dad's so it will be a good productive day - looking forward to it!!

    I think im weird now or just tooooo organised as i dont think I am getting the nesting feelings!

    The nursery is ready and tidy, all clothes I have had all ready been washed and put away. All items are in their new places, under stairs cupboard is now storage for baby items, all feeding equipment (incase I dont breastfeed) are all clean and in place in the kitchen. The house is clean and tidy and I have no urge what so ever to clean anything from top to bottom.

    what do you think, I got the urge early? or am just weird

    I know exactly what you mean! It winds me up cos I can see the mess the house is in but D/H is like "its fine, theres nothing wrong with it" and then my Mum comes round and says the same thing :twisted: lol - I wish so much I had the energy to do it all myself - I could quite easily potter around all day cleaning and making sure everything is ready!

    Your saturday sounds like heaven!!! - they couldnt pop round to me after could they!!!????!

    Lisa31, lol aint it mad how you see one little speck of dirt and you fumigate everything lol!

    I just noticed you are due on the original date my docotr gave me, Jadie is due on the date the hospital gave me. I figured I would set my ticker to the latter date so I wasnt disapointed but feel like i could go any minute lol.

    Arggggh feeling so anxious to get little person out now!

    I agree - it is mad :) . I was bad enough anyway before being pg!

    My Mum offered to come and help but she said that she only would if I didnt follow her round telling her how to do it properly - she said she would help if I let her get on with it!!! - no way! it has to be done my way or not at all LOL :lol:
