Hooray for progesterone!

Progesterone is up!  Woohoo! Yesterday's blood draw (10w2d) result: 26.1.  I can go down to one shot twice a week!

So, that's good news.

I also decided to try to find ways to reduce the morning sickness.  I had been trying to just offer it up and take it as a good sign that the pregnancy's going well . . . and then figured, nah. OK, not really, but morning sickness is not the best when I feel more and more nauseated as the day goes on, putting off the time I have to cook dinner without throwing up (because even if I can't eat it, everyone else has to!), so then dinner is late, and the kids are in bed late, and I want to collapse into bed the minute they do . . . so, yeah. I thought, "maybe there's a better way to handle this." And, of course, the brilliant Jen at Conversion Diary found it. I had gone off of the diet I mentioned (which I believe I found on her blog in the first place). It made me feel really good, but I just couldn't keep it up with it in the craziness of the summer. But, sure enough, it works for morning sickness, too!  I feel sooo much better!  I have more energy and practically no nausea. Things are good.

And I've thrown in the towel on a bunch of things. We're still not in the new house. We still haven't put our old house on the market. Just too much going on. We're working our tails off, but between both of us working full time, Mr. X commuting an hour to an hour and a half each way, etc., etc., and the million little projects we have to finish on this house, the million big projects we have to finish on the new house, not to mention packing up all of our junk . . . it just isn't done yet. So, we went to one of those meal-prep places and ordered twelve dinners. And we just had a cleaning service come to the old house, and they're coming to the new house tomorrow. Not that we're going to do this all the time, but there is no way we can keep up with work and all the regular tasks and fix up both houses. Something's got to give.

But I haven't outsourced laundry yet, so I'm off to put in some more!

Praise God for your children!!

It's so hard to adopt a child in some countries outside America. In australia if you want to adopt or foster a child you have to agree not to try to conceive for a year. I sent in an expression of interest for international adoption 3 months ago and have still heard nothing back. The next step is attendance at a workshop for which they only hold one per year and cannot give you a date until a month or so before. People easily wait 10 years. And meanwhile so many children are growing up without loving families.
