Why Nesting Is a Natural Part of Pregnancy

It seems like from the first day I take my pregnancy test, I am a woman on a sole mission-to organize my house.

Closets, drawers, spare cupboards, the garage bearing the remnants of the worst winter of all time-nothing can escape my pregnant wrath.

And while part of me secretly relishes the pregnant cleaning spree, another part of me wonders if it's all in my head. Does pregnancy really cause my purging and cleaning streak, or is it just a convenient excuse to throw out my husband's old sweatshirts?

Currently, I am almost 23 weeks along in my fourth pregnancy. (I always round up when people ask me. Tell me I'm not the only one.) And I am obsessed, apparently, with outdoor storage. I can't stop googling "outdoor wicker storage" so I can have even more toy clutter outside on my deck for my kids.

Sigh.

But seriously. Wouldn't a black wicker storage ottoman be handy with all the warm-weather gear coming up?

OK, but focusing here. There seems to be a fundamental need for me to organize everything in (and out of) my house right now. I am hugely and irrationally stressed out that we don't have a room in our house for this upcoming baby (she'll be bunking in with mom and dad for awhile-in her playpen), and my husband can't understand my need to have everything in ship-shape before her big arrival.

"Chaunie, she will be a baby," he says calmly. "It's not like she'll ever know!"

I've finally come to the realization that there is no rational rhyme or reason to the desire to have the nursery organized, the bedrooms spruced up, and our entire home clean and sparkling before the baby comes. It simply goes back to the primal instinct for a woman to have a place for her baby, not to mention the fact that we're not exactly going to feel like cleaning out those closets after giving birth, are we?

And according to the American Pregnancy Association, there are a few more interesting tidbits about the nature of pregnancy nesting that I wasn't quite aware of:

  1. Nesting can be worse if your baby is due in late spring or summer (the case with every single one of my babies!)
  2. Nesting can be as simple as wanting to fold a drawer of baby clothes or as widespread as looking for a new house (also guilty on both counts!)
  3. The most common time for nesting during pregnancy occurs during the last month, but it can start anytime
  4. Nesting can occur in dads, too (my husband is currently building new bedroom sets for our kiddos!)

Did you experience nesting during your pregnancy at all?
