We meet our gorgeous boy in a few weeks, been to matching panel etc.

I am like a woman possessed, cleaning, organising, stocking up on stuff.....I think I am nesting! Has anyone else experienced this before their child or children landed?

It's almost a physical urge, like I am a clucking hen, who wants to have everything sorted so I can lay an egg! Very odd.

Nesting is a kind of madness. But enjoy it - the years of chaos and grubbiness will soon be upon you!

Congratulations on your matching - you must be very excited.

No having had 3 homegrowns the nesting instinct is just as strong when adopting!! Grin

I was went through the nesting whirlwind myself before ds arrived. I think it's a perfectly natural thing to do. Best wishes!

God yeah - I drove my husband round the bend as every time he came home I was sewing stuff for the baby's room while watching Friends. (Or maybe it was Friends that drove him round the bend ... )
