According to our childbirth education class one of the sign before onset of labor is, nesting. Not only does it occur during just before labor but, also during the middle of pregnancy.
In my case nesting has not demonstrated itself in a nursery, (we don't have one) but in creating beautiful spaces in my home for me to labor. Early on while doing labor practice I realized it is hard for me to relax in an ugly environment. That at the time was our bedroom. We were able to tackle that during our vacation earlier this summer.
My quest grew into creating, "The Perfect Birth Space". The ideas began rolling in after viewing an EXCELLENT movie on home birth called, "Home Delivery." In it one of the mom's created a birth tent. I wanted to do something similar. Hence the birth of our space. Last Friday, Jamila came over and took charge of completing the "Birth Space". This was under the hopeful guise that once it's done, so would the baking of BC. . . Here are some pics of how it turned out!

And now the living room. It's still pretty bare but it is neat and together. . . which is more than it was about three weeks ago.
