I am about five months pregnant and am still working. My husband helps around the house – cleaning, cooking, etc. – but I still don’t feel like I have a lot of time to relax. And, I do want to help my husband around the house, but I get tired very quickly. What do other expecting mothers do?

dont worry, I went through the same thing with my two kids. i felt totally useless and my wonderfull husband did what he could because he knows that you are feeling miserable and you just cant do alot. just hang in there. before you know it you'll have a little baby to play with.

Hi Jackie. When are you due? I think you would find more responses if you posted this on one of the Due Date Clubs. If you tell me when you are due I will get you the link.

I agree with Jen, just hold in there. Your husband sounds like he has everything covered. If you want to pitch in, I suggest getting a vacuum called the Roomba. I got one for Christmas and I absolutely love it. It is basically a vacuum that needs no help. He senses dirt and does its job without you. How great is that. Anyway, back on subject – the Roomba should help with you floors and you can tell hubby that you have that taken care of. Just try to pitch in, and if you get tire, sit down and put your feet up. You deserve it.

I think we are all that way- just do what you can and try not to exhaust yourself. You say that you are 5 months... does this mean you are due in June? I'm due June 10th. I work full time and have had a hard time keeping up with housework too- unfortunatley my husband isn't the biggest helper in the world. Good luck! Come by and check out the June DDC if that is when you are due- we would love to have ya'!

Jackie,

Hire a PT maid & enjoy the fact that your husband loves you enough to help care for the house so you don't have to get worn out
