Confessions of a Delinquent Blogger Mother

Okay, so I have a some confessions to make:

1. I have not written a blog post in about month.

2. I've quite often been utilizing television and dvds to entertain my children while I sleep.

3. I still haven't potty trained my 33 month old. In fact, I haven't even attempted in about a month. (it gets worse...)

4. I haven't cooked dinner for my family since....uuummmm...see, I can't even remember.

5. I've been on quite the emotional roller coaster (and what fun would that be if I didn't drag my poor husband along with me for the ride?;)

So there you have it.

What would drive me to such behavior? I'm sure some of you seasoned parents have already guessed it...


I have not had my first prenatal appointment just yet (a whole other story of delinquency). However, based on my calculations I should be between 10 and 11 weeks pregnant and due sometime in March. The nausea, fatigue, and the moodiness I've been feeling are not at all unique to this pregnancy. I pretty much felt this same way during the first trimesters of pregnancy with our girls. Thus, its hard to say if there are any tale-tell signs that this might be our first son or not!

How about you? Did your pregnancies differ based on the babies gender?


  1. hey!! congratulations!! i'm due march 16th and i'm 9 weeks today!! so we're due pretty close together!! i wasn't sick at all w/ my little boy (who is 3 1/2), but i've been nauseated since week 6 this time... it's quite miserable and i feel like a terrible wife and mother... i hope it passes soon! i hope it does for you too! ppl keep saying that it means we're having a girl- i feel like it's a boy though. who knows!! will you find out when you get an ultrasound when the time comes??

  2. Congratulations Chelsa! I know what you mean about this nausea. Hopefully, we'll both soon be feeling better! We are planning to find out the gender when it comes time for the ultrasound. How about you guys?

  3. oh yes, i'm much to curious not to find out!! :)

  4. yay...glad to see that you are back.

  5. Hoping for a girl this time Chelsa?

  6. Apparently my earlier attempt at commenting didn't work out. Congratulations!! I'm very excited for you (my eyes welled up a bit when I read this post :)). As for the question of symptoms and gender in pregnancies, I was so sure this last one was a girl because I was so sick, like I was with my daughter. I was really just tired with my son and as long as I kept food in my stomach, I felt pretty good. Turns out this one was a boy after all, so I don't think the gender thing works for me. I have a friend who had two very rough pregnancies (she was sick the whole time) and two boys. Her third was much easier, so she thought it was a girl, but she had another boy. Then again, I have another friend who says her girl pregnancies were very similar and her boys were similar (tired with girls and sick with boys) so maybe it works for some.

  7. Thanks Mrs. K,

    I have found alot of mixed experiences about the whole thing as well. Hopefully, I will have a similar experience as you did and this one will turn out to be a boy. I think I will be able to find out sometime in late we'll see!

    I hope you and the new baby are well!
