    Im currently prepearing for the nursery, but im having to do it on my own and Im kinda worrying.
    My dad cant do much as he can bearly walk, let alone do anything else, and my brother is never home- im concerned that if I do too much I can cause myself a problem. Whats the score with over doing it and to what extent before it causes any problems? x

    Your body will tell you when you've overdone it. In my first pregnancy I was so precious about everything I did, 2nd time round with a toddler to look after and carry everywhere, moving and renovating a house I realised that we're pretty hardy when we need to be! Unless you're a high risk pregnancy no need to wrap yourself up in cotton wool, it will just make the recovery afterwards a lot harder (well that's what I found when I compare my two pregnancies!).

    Nesting? The weekend before Alex came I scrubbed the blinds that were still up from the old lady who owned it before and on the Monday sorted through all of the clothes I had for DS, made sure they were in the drawers they needed to be etc. I'm sure our bodies know we're going in to labour waaaaay before we realise!
