So, an interesting turn of events this week.  I went from one sick mama to feeling GREAT!  As in, so great, I ran down the stairs last night without thinking about the fact that I was hefting a baby belly with me!

Yay for 18 weeks!

I am cooking again.  I’ve even gone back to eating Trim Healthy Mama style because it does such a good job of balancing my blood sugars and that always makes me feel better.

We are slowly catching up around the house, which included bringing up the better washer from the basement so I can keep a watchful eye on the laundry and buying 3 new bookshelves to control the book/homeschool chaos.

A note on the laundry…
Ever since we moved in February, we’ve struggled to find a good laundry system.  Nothing was really working well.  Then, I got pregnant and sick and let’s just say laundry began to stink…literally.  Our remedy for laundry that ends up that way is OxyClean.  I know, not super all-natural, but it works.  It takes clothes that smell like wet-dog to clothes that are fresh as a daisy (as my sister likes to say).  Using a lot of that stuff these days as we catch up. ;)

Honestly, now that we are back to one washer (and it’s upstairs), I think we’ll have an easier time with our laundry system.  We will probably go back to the same one we had at the other house.

On the down side of all this 2nd trimester goodness is that all of my lovely first trimester fingernails have broken.  This happens every pregnancy to me.  I don’t have very nice fingernails to begin with.  They don’t grown long unless I am newly pregnant.  But once the pregnancy hormones level out at around 12 weeks, that’s it.  No more nails.  Boo hoo.

Oh, by the way…guess who has a sonogram coming up in a week?!  Cannot wait!
