Work outside of home moms...

Please don't get me wrong, I know SAH and WAH moms work just as hard as anyone! But I think it is different when you work outside the home...you can't run a load of laundry or dishes whenever you get a chance. Lately I have been feeling so overwhelmed, and I was just wondering how other moms who are working outside of the home are coping with housework? I don't know what my problem is, but I can't keep up. I spent the entire weekend cleaning, and my home is still a disaster. I know part of my problem is that I let it get really bad before I kick into gear, and then it is too much work for me to handle right now. Also, the farther along in my pregnancy I get, I am just exhausted when I get home from work. My MIL is coming up next week, and last night I was in tears over how I was going to get all the cleaning done before she gets here.
Hiring a house cleaner is not in our budget, but I was hoping you guys had some ideas for keeping up on the housework! Dh is no help at all, he works about 60 hours a week and is in school. With another baby coming I have got to get some sort of schedule going. How do you stay on top of things?
