    I wasnt allowed to do housework that involved strenuous activity with my boy Thomas but with Cody i was sick all pregnancy so i did housework as a distraction, plus DH had to cook coz i couldnt stand any smells, so i was continuously opening up the house and making the place smell like a hospital ( truckloads of disinfectant !)

    I LOVE YOUR COMMENT TANYA!!!! pmsl !!!

    I still do all the usual housework but dh does all the mopping and cleans the bathtub and shower these days, only because I had a few scares early on and the ob said I had to take it easy, so I still do the dusting etc and only vaccum if dh is working on the weekends.

    Do what you feel is comfortable and have some short rests in between - I find that helps.

    I didn't stop - I even did a spot vaccum before I left for the hospital However, I DID modify my methods and frequency. Like Ozziehoffy, I did what I could when I could. And I allowed plenty of "recovery" time because I had bad edema.

    I had to stop mopping and vacuming early on due to spotting whenever I vacumed. I can't shop at the supermarket with a trolley which is really frustrating so I have to make frequent trips with a basket or shop online.

    When DP walks through the door !!

    You don't ever stop. The housework will always be there and will always need doing. If I want that toilet cleaned I'd better get on my hands and knee's coz no other buggar is going to do it for me.

    I didn't really stop doing the housework. There were some days when I just didn't have the energy, but once I hit 37 weeks I did everything that involved strenuous activity as I was hoping it would bring on labour (no such luck as my DD made me wait 5 extra days!).

    Todays duties in housework for me...Do the washing, vacuum, including going around all the edges, because I am too short to get the architraves I will be using a broom to attack the cobwebs I might have missed 3 days ago. Vacuum out the window tracks. Mop the floors, to clean the shower I use the mop as well to avoid a lot of bending over, I vacuum out the tub and then I mop it as well and because my dog snots all over the windows I may just do them as well. Justin tries his hardest but I am so pedantic on how things get done that I end up going behind him and doing it my way.

    I am a born slob...The last couple of months has seen a major change in me. So for me I am only just starting
