Retail Nesting - How To Nest Without Breaking a Sweat

Having access to any store via the web can be a bad thing for a nesting preggo.

Having access to any store via the web can be a bad thing for a nesting preggo.

Pregnancy is slowing my pace down physically. I am dragging constantly. I can’t get enough sleep (just not during typical hours). And did I mention it’s consistently over 100 degrees each day here in Texas. UGH.

The urge to nest is SO there, but I just can’t physically get myself to do it. The cleaning, laundry and organizing are being delegated out to the kiddos and husband. While I am bummed I can’t get in on the action and help physically I have another way to nest. It’s what I call “Retail Nesting”.

What exactly is retail nesting?

It’s the act of making insane purchases in an effort to get ready for the baby. And since I really have no desire to go out into this heat the internet has become my best friend (and possibly my worse enemy).  It’s how I nest without breaking a sweat!

Thankfully, the purchases are practical in nature, but do I really need to be stock-piling diapers 2 sizes up, just to have? The purchases have included everything from bottle nipples in various flows to a diaper bag to snap t’s. It’s like I’m on a mission to complete all purchases for this baby’s first year before he or she even arrives.

Well and it’s not even just for the baby. With our babe arriving a few weeks before school starts, I have been buying the kids new school clothes and shoes.

Thank you internet for allowing me to shop and nest online. I’m enjoying the air conditioning and no swollen feet. The depleted bank account, well I’m hoping the husband understands..

Did You Retail Nest Before Your Baby?
