Oh yes we nest.

Nesting is an urge that most pregnant women get, starting around the 5 month of pregnancy. An overwhelming feeling to get the house in order. Cleaning, completing projects, putting together baby's crib... I had this feeling with all three of my pregnancies. Lately I've been feeling the same urge. Cleaning, wanting everything to stay perfect for the baby. God forbid the referral call comes and there are dishes in the sink! So for all you POP's out there (pregnant on paper) You're not the only one that's obsessed about preparing for your child. We're not only POP we are pregnant in our bodies too. Your heart is where this child was conceived and is growing, right? So go with it. Don't deprive yourself of the adoption experience. I was fighting the urge because I didn't want to be disappointed, but my S.W. encouraged me to nest. She explained that whether the baby comes now or later...she's coming! And when she does I'll be ready.

PS. Yipee! courts have re-opened. This means that those who have been waiting on their day in court, it's coming soon. I hope that you will all pass court the FIRST time around and that you will be united with you're children soon. CHI reported 2 referrals to 1 family today. Congratulations to them all !

I just saw your post on the CHI board and I see you are in FL! We just moved here and have also adopted through CHI. Excited to follow your journey. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but court doesn't open until the 13th. :( Hopefully you get a referral soon!!

Toni, I have just checked out your store too. Cute! We'll be going to Orlando, FL, eventually once we have our little girl to take the kids to Disney. We might swing by your store :) if we're ever in town ...
