Aug 08, 2011 Nesting “To nest or not to nest.” That is not the question. Rather, “nesting” is an instinctual behavior that occurs to some women when pregnant. It is not really a choice, but in my experience an obsession with preparation. I found the need to fold and refold onsies and towels in a very specific way and had things cleaned like never before. I was meticulous and precise about all things baby. I think its great that you are so involved in baby’s arrival and that you are enjoying the process of preparing with Amulya. Nesting was very internal and solo mission for me. I like your use of the term although I think its a new definition of nesting for the modern couple welcoming baby. Enjoy!
