  • I had twin toddler boys when I had my daughter. I remember freaking out about the house too. I was in school and working until recently. and sinc ive been a SAHM ive been able to be on top of things na dkeep the house a lot cleaner. I suggest for one, since you are pregnant, to get someone to help you clean. ANother thing , is everytime you leave a room, don't exit it until you clean it. If something's on the floor, clean it up right away. Vacuum and sweep everyday. for being pregnant its easier to vacuum the tile too LOL. ( i do this and im not prengnat) also make designated times to do things. Like laundry in the morning and at night, floors and deep-cleaning (like if you have to wash the cabinets - 2x weekly occurance for me and my boys LOL) while kids are napping, dishes after dinner, just a schedule will help you.Good luck

  • I agree with scheduling things but since you are a busy mommy you need to remember that there are some things that dont NEED to be done daily. Like vacuuming, you can vacuum every other day, with the exception of unplanned messes of course (WHO GOT THE GLITTER OUT!!!) Sweeping the kitchen could be done at night- but I agree, I vacuum the kitchen too...lol Laundry can be done 3 days a week instead of 1-2 loads a day, do 3-4 on M, W, and F leaving Tuesday and Thursday to do other minor chores. Its all about what works for you...Good luck, and stop stressin. Remember, its your house and the only people you have to please are the ones who live IN it.
