Do you clean as much now that you are pregnant?

I try to do as much as I can but I run out of breath quickly and don't want to inhale all those chemicals.

  • No I don't clean as much...and it takes me even longer to do less work lol...I get exhausted so quickly lol...I told DH the other day that for the next 5 weeks the ball is going to drop on at least one household chore every single day lol

  • I cleaned just as much when I was pregnant, there was no one else to do it and it had to get done.

  • I do clean a lot but my husband is always willing to do anything he can to help. I am almost 29 weeks and I get tired and run out of breath easy too but I can't stand a messy dirty house. I also use Lysol wipes so I don't smell chemicals.

  • Now that the morning sickness is gone I am a cleaning fanatic. Worse then before I got pregnant. I don't use harsh chemicals I'm just doing a lot of organizing, vacuuming, dusting etc. I have to be careful not to overdo it actually. I think I am in the nesting faze right now at 32 weeks! I feel like a big fat hen! LOL!

  • I think I clean less now, but I'm more thorough about it..everyone's finally started to pick up after themselves (woo hoo!) lol so that makes my job easier.

  • goto the vitamin shoppe, or even target and they have non toxic cleaning produts-- that's what I use. The target one is called 7th generation, there are very few brands at the vitamin shoppe all in which work very well.
