Nesting

So I think that the nesting instinct has kicked in... this whole pregnancy I've kind of been sitting around the house like a blob on the weekends because our week is SO FULL of kids sports and activities that by the time Friday night rolls around, I am done. But this weekend I feel like I've been possessed! We had a busy weekend - Saturday was a taekwondo tournament that all three of my DDs were competing in, and Sunday was a gymnastics show for one of the twins.

But in between the tournament, and the gymnastics show, I was cleaning like a freaking madwoman!! And I'm talking deep cleaning - bathrooms, entryway, kitchen, etc. I was reorganizing, packing away winter stuff, cooking, etc. It's weird - it's like it all kicked in at once, and I snapped! LOL

Is anyone else feeling the nesting urge, yet, and going after your house??

Ive actually been having that feeling but my weeks are busy as well, then the weekend I try to make some type of plans with the girls, even if its just to the park or a movie or something and then I have to balance between the rest I wish I could have and the cleaning I know and desire to do... plus I have been noticing that if I over do it too much in anything really braxton hicks start kicking in and I HATE that tightening feeling... so I just give in! But on the plus side overall I have been very productive in random projects- when I set out to get something done, I do it.

Totally! DH and I just did a bunch of organizing, re-arranging and storing to make more space! The next step is cleaning the apartment from top to bottom; but, I'm too tired to continue now. I'll do some little by little through the week!

I've got my list of stuff I need to do, but between DS exhausting me during the day and our insanely busy weekends by the the time I get any free time I'm napping instead! I've posted in on my fridge and occasionally I'll come home and see DH has done something! Those are great days!

I've gotten the nesting urges - but they usually outlast my energy. I am hoping that I will really get some stuff done in the next few weeks. It's going to be here before we know it.
