that's how I feel- I have 4 kids too and I just want things to be peaceful here when the little guy arrives.

Anyone team green and very nesty?
Well, I think you may be on to something. I wasn't nesty at all before I found out gender, and now we are getting tons done. I've never felt super nesty, and we usually don't find out gender, so that may be it Of course now I'm not allowed to do very much at all so it's really just frustrating! My Dh tries to understand, but he is lacking the hormones

In case anyone wants to diagnose my mental state:
We've cleaned out every closet. Donated 4 huge bins of clothing. Cleaned out storage. Loser on balcony and threw away 4 trash bags full of who knows what. Cleaned out kitchen cupboards and reorganized all beans and grains into new storage containers. Cataloged all nb clothes/diapers and donated three full trash bags of those. Purged other cloth diapers and gave a huge trash bag to a newlywed friend.

All that with 7 people in a 1300 square foot apartment.

Even still, my major nesting is with finances and lists of things to do. I've budgeted out finances to the dime until April. I've also made about ten different lists of things to do, buy, buy used, reorganize, cook before baby comes.

I'd say I'm nesting a little.

I would love to see a baby room pic! We ended up keeping our wall colors so no painting here.

It's kinda boring. We had 2 walls with a soft hint of yellow and 2 walls bright baby green. I picked bedding for the new baby that is teal and purple, so we just painted to green walls the same barely yellow

Re: Nesting?

Oh man, I hear you on the nesting - although I have a 16 month old and I work part time from home so I feel like I don't have time to do half of what I want to accomplish before the baby comes. So I've been making lots of to-do lists :-)

Re: Nesting?

Well, we ventured out and bought a dresser today for the baby's room! That took it all out of me and I napped hard when I got home. Not making much more progress, other than washing all of our new cloth wipes (51 of them!) yesterday.

Re: Nesting?

Well I was doing good but the last couple days I have gotten nothing done...and my son's birthday party is tomorrow. Plus it snowed like a foot today so I was unmotivated to get anything done out of the house. lol
