Yep i was exactly the same. I actually hated my house I couldn't believe how dirty it was (it's really not!) I was painting walls, cleaning grout with a toothbrush and just generally being a bit crazy. I must have thrown about 30 bin bags of stuff away poor dp was constantly at the tip. When I felt like everything was done the urge to cook started especially baking at the time I thought i as behaving totally normally but now with hindsight I was slightly mad Baby is 11 weeks now and the house it's back to it's normal untidy self!
I started being like this at about 28 weeks I'm currently 34 weeks and still doing it but In 6 short weeks I've managed to get people to redecorate the living room, my room, my DD room and the nursery.
Ive reorganized my house several times, moved furniture on almost a daily basis.
It's starting to calm down now and is mostly cleaning now which I'm being told off all the time.
I really want to start doing thing now as I'm 27 weeks, I want to change our bedroom round and get bits ready to start decorating the baby's room and my hubby then said you have 3 months to do that ....... Ermm yer lets fucking move furniture when I'm the size of a house!! I want it done now not in next month! Kind of annoyed now that he does not realise how hard thing will be the bigger I get!!!
Haha no it's not my first! With my first I obsessively bought baby items, but as I don't need them this time I'm obsessively buying household items... And eating weetos.
So far this weekend I've ordered a new rug for the living room. A vax steam cleaner (I can't even believe to describe the fantasies I'm having about this ). And ordered new wardrobes from ikea (I spent about an hour decided how I'd like the interior to be!)
Now I just need to steam clean my entire house, build my wardrobes and have them tidied up to look built in, have the loft floor boreded with proper walls so I can organise storage up there, sand and re paint the downstairs hall way, stairs, upstairs hall way, my bedroom and the nursery, have the dining room wallpapered and pipes boxed in, measure and order new blinds for my bedroom and the nursery, have ceiling lights fitted in mine and the babies bedroom.... HELP!
The St before ds2 arrived I googled then successfully 'washed' my Dyson, he came at 38 weeks, so I thought I was ahead of the pace. my next job was steam cleaning the house, needless today ds2 is now 10 months and the house has not been steam cleaned.
I had a complete hysterical breakdown this afternoon and declared to DH that our house was "...so small bringing a baby here is cruel!" and proceeded to sob on the rug for the next ten minutes.
This was all because the layout of the living room is so awkward we can't rearrange it in any way despite my urge to move EVERYTHING . We do have a smaller 2 bedroom home but I now realise I was being a tad emotional...
I've recently cleaned all the skirting boards and even moved out all bedroom furniture to dust every inch I could get my paws on. I also seem to have developed an inability to have bedding on for any longer than 3 days without declaring it too dirty to sleep in
I hope this calms down when baby arrives, it's exhausting!
I'm 39wks, this weekend I organised all my bedding into sizes and colours, ironing pillow cases. Then I cleaned behind the radiators. Then I redid the silicon joints in the bathroom. Then obviously the wall plugs were dusty so I got the toothbrush out. Now I'm dying on the sofa with the biggest BH ever. DH thinks I'm completely insane. So....... You're not alone
