Nesting.

Today has been quite an emotional day for me. I am heavy into this "nesting" syndrome caused by pregnancy. I have 3 weeks until my due date and I am getting very overwhelmed by all the things I want to do before the baby is born. Unfortunately, due to my current size (not to mention having to tow 3 young kids around) I am unable to do many of the things I want to do.

Having vented over my stressful day today, I got a wonderful recommendation from the ladies at the WTMboards. Make a list, separate them into 3 categories: must do before baby, try to do before baby, and can wait until after baby. So here I am, spending my day making a 3 column list of all the things I want to get done. So far, it seems like I want EVERYTHING done before the baby. Hmm. Guess I will have to reevaluate.

I usually do get into this nesting thing before all my babes have been born. It seems like this time, however, the urge to organize, redecorate, and declutter has taken over me. It's been hard to concentrate on schooling the kids while I'm thinking about what color I should paint the room. I'm sure it can all wait. It just feels like the whole world is waiting for me to do something to it before our little guy arrives.

Hello. I had to post a comment ....you shared your blog link on the MFW yahoo group (you posted that you'd completed a schedule format; thanks for sharing that, by the way; looks great!!) I, too, am way into nesting these days, due Aug. 25 (my third child, behind a girl and boy)!!! I can totally relate to what you're feeling...just wanted to let you know that!!

I feel like my hormones are out of whack as well - crabby sometimes, and very content and mild at other times. Very frustrating, because my kids usually take the brunt of it! :-(

Anyway, good luck to you as you approach your delivery date.
