Whilst I was pregnant, I read a lot of pregnancy related information.  Probably too much.  But then there is a lot of information out there.  One of the phenomena I read about was the ‘nesting instinct’.  Apparently, as labour approaches, many women get this instinct.  It can cause strange behaviour like cleaning your home from top to toe with a toothbrush.  This didn’t happen to me; I thought that labour would never come.

But something else happened.

Just a day or 2 before I went into labour, I started furiously organising the music files on my computer – removing duplicates, making sure that they were correctly organised by band, album etc.  Is this e-nesting?  Did the phenomena happen to me after all?!

I still haven’t finished this organisation by the way… maybe it’ll never get done.
