Is your house cleaner than it was in the first trimester?

Sigh. A little but not much. Im still just exhausted all the time and when Im not tired i start cleaning but never get far before Im tired again and I give up. Or the days I dont get tired and feel up to cleaning then DD seems to always interrupt me or she starts freaking out wanting me to hold her or she wants to "help" lol and you all know a two year olds helping is just giving mom more to do.....example...ever try to fold clothes with a 2 year old "helping"? You fold two things...they unfold one. Lol

Yes, I can say that I think/hope I have turned a corner! My house has been so clean for the past week. I just started getting sick (sore throat, body aches, etc) so I am afraid it will all go down the drain. I want to keep it up so bad because it helps with my mood when my house is clean, I hate to say it. I feel better and happier when it's clean. Before the past week or so, it was always messy.

Difficult. We are still purging. Got all the boxes, etc. out of Ellianna's room. Have different colors painted on the wall trying to choose. Went through tons of old clothing to give to others - which leaves some in different areas of the house. There is progress but it looks worse on the way to getting where it needs.

I've been doing pretty good the last couple months. The last couple days however, me and my boys (not the hubby) have all had the stomach flu so none of us wants to do anything, especially me. I hate having the stomach flu and it's so much worse when I'm preggo!

Its about the same. With the kids they destroy the living room so I gave up running behind them all the time. Plus my fatigue is coming back so I have no energy.

much cleaner. Partly thanks to my mom though - she has been coming over during the day and helping me purge the basement, reorganize my sons room and basically just go through all my junk. =)

I'm going to be watching my cousins two month old in a few weeks for about 2 months so I wanted to make sure everything was ready to go before I started taking care of him.

My house looks like a bomb went off. We are moving in 2 weeks so boxes are everywhere and stuff has been pulled out that is waiting to be packed. My floors need scrubbed like crazy, but DH broke my steam mop and I haven't had time to go buy a new one. I may borrow my aunt's between now and moving time so I don't buy one just to worry about it breaking in the move. I am hoping that I can get the new house organized in a few weeks and then have a nice clean house. I will try anyway...

Ugh, my house was actually cleaner during my first trimester. I can work through morning sickness... but being straight up exaughsted... nothing is going to get done. I get sick of looking at the clutter and I'll straighten up but I'm pretty sure there's a sticky spot on the end table that's been there for two weeks. I'm trying to just do basics: keep up with laundry, chaos control on dd's room. I'm just so tired and my hips are hurting so bad. The hubs has been excellent though... I haven't touched the dishes in months!

Ummmm definitely. I didn't clean in weeks during my first trimester. Now, I can't stop cleaning even though I'm tired all the time.

It totally is! The last couple weeks, I've caught the cleaning bug, and I've been scrubbing everything and staying on top of the dishes. The only room that is still a total disaster is our office/guest bedroom/temporary baby room. DH uses the room for work, and the amount of Latin/AP World History tests that are piled everywhere is insane. We have Spring Break in 2.5 weeks, and we're going to tackle this room. Then we have like 2 months until we have to move, so it probably won't stay clean for long.

It is a lot cleaner than it was the first trimester. I am absolutely exhausted and having soooo much tailbone/hip/SPD pain but the nesting is killer. I can't stop cleaning no matter how crappy I feel!
