Nesting Instinct

Pregnant women talk about the instinct to nest. Mine has always come in the form of organizing stuff. I don't get the urge to scrub the kitchen floor. But, right this second, I feel like I need to reorganize Ander's closet, sort and hang his clothes, clean and fold the baby's clothes, replace the paper towels on the empty rack, pick up all the toys lying get the idea. The urge is practically overwhelming. It feels like I'll cry if I don't do it.

Of course, I can't do any of it. Nada. So I sit, feeling like I am totally doing the wrong thing, when I am actually doing the exact right thing.

Damn hormones.

I am sure that you NOT being allowed to do those things is adding to it. If not creating it. You must be so bored that you mind is thinking of things you would rather be doing.

I hope I never have to go through what you are going through. HUGS
