Resting because I’m easily exhausted with a combination of post-viral fatigue and third trimester loss of energy.
Nesting because I am often struck with the overwhelming urge to clean, organise and otherwise get the house ready for baby.
I’ve always liked having a clean house, and I feel better relaxing in a tidy environment but this nesting is just something else entirely. I found myself inspecting the ceiling in the bathroom wondering how easy it would be to clean without getting in trouble from my husband for standing on a chair.
Everything has more of a sense of urgency about it, like I need to get it done right now. It’s a bit exhausting sometimes as I’ll run on nesting adrenaline and then be unable to do anything more than sit on the couch and watch tv.
So this will be my life for the next little while I think, resting and nesting.
I’m hoping it will be a bit easier once I’m on maternity leave (2 weeks and 3 days left of work, but who’s counting?) and I can spread my nesting instincts out over the week instead of having to fit it all in on the weekends (because I just cannot do anything once I get home from work at the moment, I’m lucky that my husband sorts dinner out most nights otherwise we might not eat!).
I expect things will stay a little quieter on the blog until I’m on maternity leave, and then hopefully I will have the inclination/energy to spend a little more time here (at least until the baby comes!) but I will still be around as much as I can manage.
What was it like for you when your ‘nesting’ kicked in?
