keeping up with housework


Is anyone else finding it hard keeping up with housework? It's really getting to me at the moment. I'm either too tired, sick or at work, the rest of the time I am asleep. When I do manage to do a bit, I get really tired much quicker than when not pregnant and I'm already finding it hard navigating with my growing bump.

OH works really long hours so even if he could help it wouldn't be very practical as he would have to do it while I am asleep which would wake me up and make me very grumpy.

Seems like a silly thing - I'm not really complaining, but think it will help me feel better to know that I'm not the only one. It doesn't help that I am a bit of clean freak so it is really bugging me at the moment.

It does get hard to keep up. I work full time and when I get home, the last thing I want to do is housework. I try and do it in tiny spurts each night.

I'm so spacey these days that I can't seem to finish anything. I just sort of poke at the dishes and the vacuum cleaner, then I stare at the large pile of laundry for awhile.
And then I suddenly go into cleaning frenzies in which I not only scour the house, but I clean out the spare room and plant the garden and bleach out the entire refrigerator and bake a pie...I'm hoping it will all balance out in the end, but truth be told, it's probably good practice to let go of the spic 'n' span house standards well before baby arrives.

With my kids home for summer holidays, I'm have a damn hard time keeping up.

My energy level has been down for most of my pregnancy. Just yesterday though, my nesting instinct kicked in and I'm making lists of things I must do before baby is born.
