Day 28 - How To Clean While Pregnant

How to Clean While Pregnant

Three Easy Steps:

1. Get off the couch and get a phone book....no wait, just stay on the couch and dial 411 with your cell or portable phone.

2. Call a maid service (or a really good friend) and get some help.

3. Go back to watching Judge Judy while eating your chips, popcorn, crackers, bubble gum, cookies and soda (make sure other children are fed).

Don't need to dial 411 just yet (hopefully one day soon), but do you think my husband will go for that?

I was going to ask what to do if I'm not pregnant, and then I realized...oh yea...31 days to clean...bummer (no excuses). I am so glad I finally found you again. I completely remembered your site name about coffee, but tried 'cup of coffee, a warm cup of coffee' and about ten more till I remembered you had posted awhile back...yea. Now I have it bookmarked for a daily visit. I knew there was a reason the house wasn't getting clean...do you think my husband will go for that excuse?:)

This sounds like a great plan!

I was really sick with both pregnancies and did have someone who came in every other week to clean for me. And each time, I dragged it out as long as possible after the babies came.

It's the only time in my adult life when my entire home has been clean at the same time. Gosh, I miss her.

Please, oh please, tell me you're serious about watching Judge Judy! I have her show set up in my DVR and I watch her whenever I'm cleaning the kitchen. It's a dirty little secret that I don't share with too many people.

THANK YOU for this post!!! I am only 14 weeks pregnant with our first baby and already cleaning has taken back seat and hanging out on the couch is priority. We have decided that I will work full time till the baby comes so my energy is spent there. But Dave is helping out. I just have to make specific requests and be ok with it happening on his time frame. But I have been struggling with not being able to do it all anymore so this post helped me. I think I just need more people telling me its ok to get a little lazy during this time in order to take care of my baby and my changing body.
