Nesting Instinct"Around the fifth month of pregnancy, the "nesting" instinct can set in. This is an uncontrollable urge to clean one's house brought on by a desire to prepare a nest for the new baby, to tie up loose ends of old projects and to organize your world."
This little tidbit comes from parenting weekly.
And all I can say is "Wowza" it's a doozey! I can't tell you where my cell phone, keys, wallet, fork, or any other object I need is but holy hell can I clean! It's truly remarkable, and it makes me really, really mad!
Trust me, there is so much more I'd rather be doing than detail cleaning the cracks of my stove top/ oven/ door glass at 1:30 a.m. But yet there I am scrubbing away like a mad woman... Because apparently, newborn babies will need a spotlessly clean stove.
My mind is fried, any intellectual thought process is gone and I am a cleaning, crying, round, chubby little mad woman.
But enough of the "NESTING" talk today was a sad, sad day. I've been mourning the loss of a dear friend. We'll just call him 'Mr. French Onion Dip'
I lost it. I just lost it. I cried, for lack of a better term "like a baby". Why you ask? Oh because I found my bag of much needed potato chips in the fridge and my to die for French onion chip dip in my chip cabinet. I can't even get mad at anyone since I'm certain I did it. I think after a good thaw the chips will be fine but leaving my chip dip in the cabinet above a light fixture for 10 hours may have proved too much to think there's a chance of survival.
I'm still clearly upset about this, but too lazy to go buy more tonight, so I've been reading this in attempt to understand my silly self a little better Understanding your hormones during pregnancy.
This is one quote (in case you have no interest in the article). " Pregnancy is apt to turn any formerly sane and seemingly competent woman into a rather unpredictable creature; and with good reason! The culprits, it seems, are our hormones."
Seems legit to me. I have always been sane.... At least a little.
