  • I'm 36 weeks pregnant so pretty much I don't care right now. But this isnt my house and luckily I have people who are willing to help.

  • I'm 15 weeks pregnant with twins and I've already hit the point where housework isn't that much of a priority anymore. Lol. Luckily right now I'm in an apartment but in May I'm going to have to kick my butt into gear and get the new house ready.

  • I also am pregnant (27 wks) and I am to the point where I have the kids pick up almost evrything.. They're old enough to now so I guess I shouldn't feel bad. I just don't have the energy to do it!

  • Trust me, hon, I've been there! BUT- I was also diagnosed with major depressive disorder, so there's part of the reason. lol The other part is I try to take on too much at one time and get overwhelmed. Are you overwhelmed?

  • I think, no matter what our situation is, that we do tend to get burned out from time to time. It happens. Make sure the house is "safe" for your kids & tell company to excuse the mess. I found that decluttering has really helped me to speed up the amount of time I spend cleaning. Not suggesting you're a clutterbug; just saying what helped me :) Good luck!!
