I always hear people talk about "nesting" near the end of a's an interesting phenomenon. For me, I had a string of good days and I did a ton of cleaning and It just feels so good! Then I've had a couple of harder contraction centered days and I feel like I can't do much more of this. Today I'm doing laundry, cleaning the 3rd bedroom - getting ready for family to come stay with us after the baby, making extra meals, and taking a nap! I guess I'm nesting. I can see why some women are attracted to C-sections. It would be nice to know the date this baby is coming. I keep cleaning "for the last time" and it's not "the last time" yet. The good news is I like cleaning and I love it when my house shines.

I will pack my hospital bag and Adriah's "just in-case" bag today. Everything is coming together. The good news is...I will have a baby soon.
