32 weeks and nesting like crazy.. OPEN FORUM

Hey guys, I am 32 weeks along and I cannot stop working. I have all of this energy and then sudden exhaustion. I clean all day during each weekend and I have two kids at home, I work full time in a very busy and demanding job. When will this end..

Anyway, have any of you been going through this?

A couple of nurses told me there is an old wives tale stating that if you nest early that your baby might be born early. I would really like this baby to come soon, but I don't want it to be dangerous for him/her? My first was 2 weeks late, and I just don't want to go through that again!!

I hope that's not true! I am aleady deep into nesting mode and I'm only 27 weeks.  I practically have everything ready and I'm not due until February.  32 weeks is definitely a reasonable time to be getting everything ready, especially if you have other kids, I think that is what's motivating me so much this time, since this is my 2nd and I already feel like I have zero time to do anything else.

If the old wives' tale is true, then I'm going to be late (LOL).  I haven't gotten the baby's room together yet at all, and am at 33 weeks.  Still have to paint, and nothing else can happen until I do, but everything I've been doing has conspired against having the time.  Annie

Maybe the old wive's tale is true...i took the week before I was due off, thinking I'd be early, and I cooked & cleaned the entire house close to twice, but i wasn't nesting, I just  was bored!  Turns out they had to induce me because my baby was LATE by a week!

Girls, please say extra prayers for my sister.. She had more blood than usual this morning.  She is supposed to be around 5 weeks pregnant.  Her HCG as of last week was fine but she asked the dr. to do a progesterone check and they said no.  I am really nervous for her...

I am going crazy getting things ready too. My husband is waaaaay more laid back about it than I am, and so I do to much of the work myself. Then at the end of the day I find myself feeling like I'm shivering. I realized that I was actually shaking from physical exhaustion. Sunday, my husband had to force me to go sit on the couch while he cleaned house, because I had a migraine, and was still trying to push myself to help him.

I started nesting 2 months before going into labor.  Ironically, I felt no urge for anything the few days before.  So the nesting thing didn't work for me.
