Yikes! I've Reached the Nesting Phase
Teresha: It's happened. That maniac stage of pregnancy where expectant mothers develop a sudden urge to clean, organize, and plan everything down to the last detail. I thought I had another month before the madness set in. I am barely 7 months and I am already feeling the need to get everything done...like right now! It started innocently this weekend with shopping for baby gear. Babies R Us had a huge Memorial Day weekend sale. Armed with a 15% off coupon and a gift card from a friend, I was ready to hunt for a car seat. I swear I did not plan to have my husband drive 80 miles in one day to procure said car seat, but the one we wanted was not available at the first store. So, we had to drive to another location 30 miles away to get our hands on it. I am sure DH would have preferred to wait until the next sale, but I already had a mental checklist going and was not about to procrastinate. You want to know what else I did this weekend during my period of hyperactivity? I bullied the DH into spring cleaning on Saturday. We had our first childbirth education class on Sunday evening. Friends came over on Monday for BBQ and to paint a mural in the nursery. My husband is dead tired, and I'm just getting started ladies and gentleman! Next, I am going to see a pediatric chiropractor to get adjusted, shop for the rest of the nursery furniture, and schedule appointments to interview prospective pediatricians. Oh, and that's just this upcoming week. As long as I have the energy and motivation, I am going to complete as many tasks as possible because, once Miss M is here, I know I won't be up for anything except feedings and diaper changes.
