Nesting… In Full Effect!

So those of you who are parents or have been around a pregnant woman knows what nesting is. But for those of you who have no clue what I am talking about, nesting is a serious condition for most if not all pregnant women.

So my nesting phase is in full effect! I’ll be 33 weeks in a couple days and I have already had my baby shower on February 3rd. I have washed all her clothes hung them up or folded them and put them in drawers. I have re-organized my room to make room for her. Cleaned, dusted, swept, mopped and re-organized the bookshelf and medicine cabinet. The only thing I have left to do is have her father put up the baby bed and the bassinet. Clearly you can tell that I have NOCD (Nesting Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).

I didn’t realize that this was such a real thing until just now. I have such a strong urge to do nothing but clean and get stuff ready for my baby girl. It’s so bad that I would rather not go to work so that I can clean and get things organized. Ridiculous I know!

I officially can no longer make fun of pregnant women and the weird things that they do and eat. I have undoubtedly become one of those women! Nesting for me is just so relaxing and calming. And you know what, I wouldn’t change it for anything or anyone. Although being pregnant has been a huge adjustment for me, I am absolutely and unequivocally loving it!

What I Need


That is what I need

To be free

To be me

To let go of my worries

Cast away my fears


Lifes’ daily stressors

Taking a toll on me

I feel like I’m drowning

I can barely grasp for air

I feel lost

I feel unheard


If I could escape

This is where I would be

Somewhere that I can have peace

Relax my mind

And experience tranquility

Day 10: Your views on drugs and alcohol

I do not have a problem with alcohol. I think that it is good to have when you have had a long day at work and you just want to unwind afterwards or there is a party and your drinking and enjoying yourself! I love a good Sangria or a glass of wine. I am a wine enthusiast and I love wine! The problem comes when you drink in excess every day, all day. That becomes bad for your health in the long run.

But to each it’s own…..

On the other hand, when it comes to drugs I do not do them. The only drug that I do not have an issue with is marijuana. I believe that it has a lot of benefits for those who have cancer and other diseases. Also, it can help people who have trouble focusing be more focused and on task. I do not believe that it is harmful to your body. The only side effects of marijuana is that it makes you sleepy and hungry.  All these other drugs that people are using like LSD, crack, cocaine, etc. those drugs are really harsh to your body and your health.

As I stated before to each it’s own…
