No kidding, I did the day before I went into labor and so did my husband. It was wierd. It was a sunday and he cleaned out our car inside and out and put the carseat in the car. I was about 38 1/2 weeks along. I got out all the baby stuff like the clothes, lotions, soaps, blankets, everything. It was kinda last minute but I figured I had about another week. I just felt the urge to get it all done that day. well, 4am my water broke. :) I had her at 2:08pm:) At least everything got done.:)

I put my daughter to bed and hubby (didn't tell him I was in labour yet as he panics more the a women lol) I went and had a long hot bath but when in there I notice little finger prints everywhere and omg that's when it happend I cleaned my house top to bottom up stairs down stairs by the time I finished it was 6 in the morning and contraction about 5 mins apart but I could not stop there i mowed the lawn like a wild person chacing a a bargain lol at about 730 I told my husband it's time to go and 2 hours later my little boy was born

Well, I LITERALLY worked through my whole pregnancy (my water broke 3 hours before the end of my last shift). I've always kept the house pretty clean and organized and I had no urge to do anything extra until about a week before she was born (which was 9 days early) so I sat in the car with Armoral wipes and scrubbed down the interior which I rarely do...and it wasn't just an urge, it was an all out panic attack! I ran through Zellers that same day making sure I had all the little things too ie. thermometer, nasal aspirator, etc. etc. and blew about $200.
i didnt nest with my 1st but i had a broken leg and was immobile!
with my second i was nesting at 36 weeks and thought nothing of it just thought i had extra energy then went into labour right on 37 weeks and had him that day! i am going to pay more attention to my cleaning rythms with this baby!

I didn't nest but I wish I did! I didn't have the energy to clean my house, even vacuuming my house took 2 days (one day downstairs, one day upstairs) i worked all through my pregnancy and left 3 weeks before my due date but bubs came 2.5 weeks early so only ended up having 4 days off work!
i worked my entire pregnancy (I went on mat leave 3 weeks before my due date), and i started nesting about a week after sitting home during the day with not much else to do. then i went into labour a couple days later. my beautiful baby girl was born a week and a half early.

I did not have a nesting urge, the only time I had something like a nesting urge was when I was angry at my husband I cleaned my home from top to bottom haa. also I only went into labor when I was induced 10 days after my due date.
