I have been nesting for weeks, and have 4 more weeks left! I've been putting up (Ikea) flat pack furniture, painting my sons room, stripping my kitchen and hoovering every little bit of my house!

Major nesting here too, stripped the bathroom wallpaper on a whim and have ended up completely gutting and re-plumbing, tiling the room and replacing the floor (not single-handedly though!). With two weeks to go now in a mad rush to get it finished in time, the whole house is covered with dust and am getting a bit stressed!

same here with the nesting, despite the fact i am in lament labour and could go any time (39+6) i have taken to making sure all my clothes, towels etc are folded the way i want them to be, cleaning things that are already clean, sorting out the CD rack, and for some reason, i have this huge urge to paint my skirting boards!

I had a huge urge to clean my skirting boards yesterday. Never have they been so clean.

it's when you try and sort out the shelves at tesco you really have to worry blush

also had a look at my skirting boards this morning and put it on my list. the thought of getting them from groggy to shiny really got me going!

mum2bean i know what you mean, i think my friends can't stand me any more as all i do when i'm over is tidy their thigns blush

lol stayinbed, i know people say you get the nesting instinct, but they never say how bad, i just assumed i'd just become a tidier person as opposed to a clean freak that would find a fault in kim and aggy's cleaning skills.

admitedly my house has never looked tidier, but it's getting to the point where my dp is getting the hump with me because i even fold his dirty clothes to put them in the washing basket and give him very evil looks when he doesn't put his shoes together in the hallway! friends stopped coming ages ago sad lol
