I had started to get just a little energy back before the tummy bug hit our house last week which put me full swing into nesting. That - and we had ordered a new king-size mattress which meant that the guest room had to be painted so we could move all of our bedroom furniture upstairs. We also decided to do a little rearranging and move the nursery to the front room and the guest room to the back. Which also meant switching the closets. No time like a "closet-switch" situation to purge.
Despite the tummy bug we've managed to switch and organize the closets, make several trips to Good-Will, paint the guest room, move our bedroom furniture upstairs, decorate the guest room and begin painting the nursery. We have quite a few more projects to complete in the next couple of months and I'm so excited that I finally feel like doing them!

I stole this off a friend's blog and thought it would be fun to do occasionally.
Total weight gain/loss: Due to 20 weeks of nausea and 2 tummy bugs I am -7 lbs from starting weight. I finally got hungry yesterday so I'm expecting this to change quickly.
Maternity clothes? Yes. Oddly for a third pregnancy I didn't need to wear them as soon as before and could still button jeans at 16 weeks. However, I am solidly in the leggings and maternity jeans now.
Stretch marks? No new ones.
Sleep: As long as I'm not having to sleep on the couch with sick kiddos I'm still sleeping pretty well. And thanks to our new king-size bed I have plenty of space to stretch out.
Best moment this week: Having our 20 week anatomy scan and seeing a very healthy girl baby.
Movement: occasional bumps and thumps. There having been a couple of solid kicks and both Daddy and Joseph have gotten to feel them.
Food cravings: Mostly aversions to . . . everything. Especially if I have to prepare it. Until yesterday. Then everything sounded good. Coincidentally it was National Oreo Cookie Day and I celebrated.
Labor Signs: None, thankfully.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
What I miss: I was missing my energy but that seems that have come back this week too. yay!
What I am looking forward to: Finishing the nursery!
Weekly Wisdom: I really have very little wisdom to share. I think you begin to realize that the more kiddos you have, the less you actually know.
Milestones: I picked a paint color for the nursery! Next - fabric!
