    I will say I am not the most tidy person in the world, a pile of laundry sat in the basket for a week does not make me break out in a sweat but I can't stop cleaning!

    My house has never been this clean and organised but I can't stop I'm now incensed by dust and grime and am on a one women mission to rid it from our domain.

    So it got me thinking, do we become like this because we think we should be and are told its part of getting ready for the baby or is there some animal urge leftover from the cavewomen days that kicks are body into behaving like this?

    I think it's just us wanting everything to be clean and ready. I'm the same as you I can live in a 'lived in' house without freaking out but I have gone through stages of having a proper clean out. X

    Yep I'm the same...my house is generally 'lived in' but there's been a few occasions over the past week where I've gone above and beyond...dismantling the oven door to get rid of a smear for example and dissecting the seal on the shower cubicle lol x

    I definitely think it's hormonal. The week before our first was born I went on a mad cleaning spree, moving furniture and bleaching everything. It was just a total obsession. OH thought it was hilarious; once he'd told me off for lugging furniture around. Wonder what I'll do this time!

    Totally hormonal I cleaned the bathroom walls yesterday 😂 My house is definitely lived in and it is harder to feel I am getting clean with a 3 year old one child mess mission in the house I want to tie her to a chair so she can't create mess 🙈!!

    I am sure I am worse this time round as well!!

    We've only been here 6 months but it's annoyed me....not as much as the shower seal though-it was black when we moved in and I thought it was stained as it wouldn't come off-so satisfying to find it had a split in it which was where all the mark was-it's clear again now although I had to buy a new toothbrush as I used mine to scrub the edges x

    I have the nesting feeling but so frustrated that I can't do any of it. I'm in so much pain constantly that even the simplest of tasks are a mission! xx

    Nesting is defo hormonal and an instinct to me.

    I keep a tidy house as best I can normally but when preg if something is out of place it needs sorting immediately rather than in a minute!

    I have been nesting for weeks now. My fav thing to do daily is Hoover and I do it at least twice a day!! I also fitted the bathroom carpet the other day. Had to take the door off and re hang it and everything!! Fee so good that it's done now though!!

    Today I am finding it really hard. I'm really ill in bed and James is looking after the kids today. I have been downstairs twice and although it's not messy it's bothering me that I can't do anything. The Hoover is sat at the end of my bed and it is calling me so loud but I literally cannot get up and do it, my body won't let me. I will have to make up for lost time once this sickness buggers off!!!

    Xx
