Nesting During Pregnancy: What is it? The Best Storage Solutions To Organise Your Nursery
Becoming a parent is a momentous journey filled with excitement, anticipation, and, for many expectant mothers, a sudden burst of energy and the urge to nest. If you've found yourself waking up with a strong desire to clean, organise, and prepare your home for your new bundle of joy, you're experiencing what is commonly known as nesting during pregnancy. My First Nursery, your trusted online nursery furniture retailer, is here to guide you through this phase and provide you with the best storage solutions to create an organized and welcoming nursery space.
Understanding Nesting During Pregnancy
Nesting is a phenomenon that hits many expectant mothers, particularly during the later weeks of pregnancy. This powerful urge to declutter, tidy up, and organize your surroundings is a natural instinct that prepares you for the arrival of your baby. Some might attribute nesting to the changing seasons, with many women feeling the strongest urge to clean and organize during spring—a phenomenon known as "spring cleaning." Others speculate that this instinct is driven by a desire to enjoy the outdoors and make the most of the warmer weather before the baby's arrival.
For those of you expecting in late spring or summer, the nesting instinct might be even more intense. The reasons for nesting during pregnancy can vary and might include boredom from waiting, the anticipation of caring for your baby, or simply the excitement of creating a perfect environment for your new addition.
When and How Does Nesting Occur?
Nesting during pregnancy can happen at any time, but it's most commonly reported in the last couple of weeks leading up to delivery. Seasonal factors, holidays, and celebrations can also contribute to the desire to prepare your home. Keep in mind that not every pregnant woman experiences these nesting urges, and that's perfectly okay. If you're feeling overwhelmed, don't hesitate to involve your partner in the nesting process—they can be a great source of support and help lighten the load.
