Forcing it

Can you force the "nesting" stage? I'm feeling nothing (no motivation), and nothing at all is ready for this little guy. According to the side of my blog I have 4 weeks 5 days left. Aliah and Inara were both two weeks early. (I wonder/hope he'll follow tradition.) Four weeks is plenty of time... two weeks however, is not. I could be ready in two weeks, but because I'm just not feeling that surge of "nesting" energy, I'm pretty sure I won't be. What's a girl to do? My sister Michelle is having her baby today. TODAY! I can't believe it. I've been focusing on her pregnancy to make mine go by faster. It worked. But now that her big day is here I'm having such mixed emotions. I'm beyond excited to meet my new little nephew! But I'm crying (pregnancy tears, nothing real) because I've never felt so jealous of anyone in my entire life. Strange. I'm hoping to force a little energy this week that will hopefully spark my "nesting." That should make me feel better, don't you think?

P.S. I know, I know. I don't like posts without pictures either.

I love you. And, you make me laugh. "Pregnancy tears, nothing real"....haha

Hang in there!

I never 'nested' or whatever. I was on bedrest until I had her...but I never felt the urge to clean. Don't think that has ever happened in my life!

I liked the "pregnancy tears" thing too. So true!

As for "nesting," I'm sure part of that is him being a boy and maybe not knowing what to do in the way of nesting. You'll figure it out! And if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask me or any of your other wonderful BFFs.

Can't believe it is so soon!

I never really felt like nesting, not at the end of the pregnancy anyway. I had dreams of crocheting Avonelle a blanket and making her a quilt, but I never had the energy. I did finally get the house really clean, as in I scrubbed the base boards with a toothbrush. But that wasn't really a nesting thing so much as it was I knew Amy was going to be there soon and I didn't want to be embarrassed. Maybe knowing you have so much to do will make the last month go by faster. Tell that little guy his aunt Abby loves him.

I am about 22 weeks and I've been cleaning for months now.. still lots to do! :) I wish I could share my "nesting" with you to let it go a little :)

Those last few weeks are definitely hard (BOY was I cranky). Hang in there. Just keep yourself busy with anything and everything- like shopping for little man clothes!
He will be here before you know it!!!

I always feel anxiety over not being ready and that causes me to NAG my husband to do all the "nesting" for me. Haha. So there is your solution...tell your husband to get the nest ready for his FIRST BORN SON! Ps: don't worry the cupcakes are coming on Tuesday. Cupcakes make everyone happier. Love love you.
