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.
