I refuse to clean my house anymore while pregnant. I just don't have the energy, and what I do have, I would rather spend with my kids and at the gym. I hired a housekeeper today and she's coming on Wednesdays to clean my 3100 sqft home. We will see how long it takes before my husband notices.
Oh I am SO tempted to do the same and hire a cleaner! I feel so damn lazy and just drained (thanks to pretty severe MS for the past 24 hours). I just about got the kids to school this morning and have been collapsed on the sofa watching crappy daytime tv since. The washing pile is growing arms and legs, the ironing pile needs its own room, the dishwasher needs unstacked and restacked - AArRGH! Where do I start?? I'll sit n think about that while I finish the cuppa.
I haven't done any house work in about a week!! Our house is such a mess!! But I've been so sick with all day sickness that some days I haven't even got out of bed!! ( except to be sick!!) my husband was being really good and doing the housework but I guess now he's got fed up of doing it all himself as he's sort of stopped!! We can't afford a housekeeper with all the time off work I'm having ATM as I don't get sick pay!!
Oh well I feel there's more important things in life than a tidy house!!
If you can afford one, then get a housekeeper. If you can't, then why not ask family to help out until the MS subsides and you get some energy back. I call 20-27 weeks the honeymoon period. I always felt my best during that time. After 27 weeks, enlist your family again. A few tears shed to your parents should do the trick.
I am really trying to keep my house in somewhat of a decent shape. Its small so shouldn't be too hard, but it is! I do one thing a day and thats all I have energy for. Luckily my husband is willing to help. I didn't realize how much I spoiled him before until I asked him to clean the bathroom and he said "What needs to be done? I did it last week." and I said "I clean it EVERY week. You don't notice????"
