Nesting: Many pregnant women develop a sudden burst of energy just before labor begins, and want to take care of household and personal tasks such as getting the baby's clothes and room ready or even scrubbing the kitchen floor. After feeling so fatigued for so many weeks, it's easy to give in to the impulse to tie up all those loose ends, but remember that it's more important to conserve all that energy for the labor and delivery process.
Grief: As birth becomes a near reality, some women may experience a sense of loss of the intimate connection they've had with their baby. There is also a natural anticipation of the loss of attention that comes with being pregnant.
