My word for this week is Nesting. As you know from last weeks Word of the Week I am waiting for the birth of my first baby. I am now nearly 39 weeks and still waiting! but this week I thought i would pick the word Nesting for my #WotW, although waiting still applies!
So apparently most pregnant women go through some sort of nesting phase before the birth of their little one. I am not sure I fit into that category as I haven’t had that nesting feeling, or so I think! A few weeks back my husband and I got the nursery ready, I washed, folded and put away all her little clothes. I have double and triple checked my hospital bag. Does this count as nesting?
I always thought nesting was cleaning and scrubbing every surface possible but that part hasn’t come to me (yet!). I really don’t have the energy to clean out the fridge or mop the kitchen floor. Nesting is a natural way of preparing and protecting your unborn baby from the outside world.
I would love to hear what were your nesting habits? if you had any.
There is an old wives tale that when nesting urges begin labour is about to come on. So maybe my little girl isn’t ready to come yet! I hope this isn’t true as I am getting really fed up with waiting. I have been on maternity leave for two weeks now ( I had 4 weeks holiday to use up from work before that) so I am all out of waiting now. It is the most exciting thing in life to wait for and I am so eager to meet my baby girl.
Maybe next week I will have a completely different Word of the Week!
Thanks to thereadingresidence for hosting the great Word of the Week linky.
