I am now 8 weeks along, and have been scrubbing like CRAZY! Everything! I even vacuumed my in-laws house. I have been looking at our house and have been cleaning, organizing, and throwing away like crazy. I am a SAHM and have usually been too tired or too busy with other things (can't remember what, though) to really get down and organise. But now, I've got so much energy to clean...I even ENJOY doing it!
With my dc #1 I don't remember it being this bad.
At least at Easter when I'm due our house will be so shiney and spotless I'll be eating from the floors. A good reason for me to do a home birth...

Fedex some of that energy over to me! :LOL

I am so beat that while I keep thinking about cleaning, alas, I do not have the energy to actually do it.

I need to tho - our house is pretty scary right now.

Can you come over to my house?

My dad and sister are visiting tonight, and the place is a mess. The guest bed's made, and the air mattress is somewhere in the mess we call our basement - that's it. And we have no hot water because our water heater died last night (right before a load of diapers nonetheless).
