This is going to sound really weird, but my mother is kind of creeping me out.

Don't get me wrong, I love love love my mom, but something is...off. She always knows the exact place I'm at, even if she's not at home, and when I come home from school, things in my bathroom and bedroom are rearranged. I don't know why, because I always keep my space really clean. Sometimes when I'm in bed, I hear her go in my bathroom and mess around for a few minutes, and when I'm in a different part of the house, she goes in my room and moves stuff around. I keep telling her that I can clean my room, she doesn't need to, but it isn't helping. Maybe she's just trying to help me in some way, but I don't see how, and I don't like it, because I can never find things. I want to tell her, but it's kind of a weird subject, and I have no idea how to approach it. :/

There is a chance you mom has OCD.

My grandparents do the same thing. I used to live with them but it got to the point where i couldn't handle it anymore. They are both retired and spend all their time cleaning and rearranging.

If I were you I would just straight out ask her what she's doing

Do you think she's considering pregnancy? I'm not trying to sound weird but is that an option?

Is she highly protective of you? She might just be trying to hold onto the control of your life she had when you were younger.

She's probably just being overly protective. Moms do it and don't even realize they're doing it. I guess it just comes naturally as a motherly instinct.

Maybe she's just nosey.

Could she be looking for something or making sure you aren't doing anything wrong? If not, thank her and tell her very nicely that you can't find your stuff when it's rearranged

Parents are bombarded with " check behind your kid! YOU may think they're a good kid but parent so and so thought so and her kid DIED!!!"
It's possible she's trying to be a "good mom" and make sure you aren't huffing or taking drugs, etc

Maybe she thinks you're hiding something from her
