Deep cleaning tips for lazy pregnant person

I am looking for tips and cheats here. We are moving house this weekend and when the current house is empty we will need to do a good clean to get our deposit back. I have not been on top of things lately, I am 22 weeks pregnant with pgp and also have ds 2.5 and dd5.5 who cause carnage most of the time.

So, should I be using wipes, or spray and j-cloths? I will get someone else to hoover the entire house.

Normally I use flash liquid and a microfibre cloth but the house is really dusty as I cannot hoover and I don't want the hassle of constantly refilling the washing up bowl when the water gets too manky.

Please help me, I am planning an online shop so can access most items.

Dettol/other bathroom and kitchen wipes - when pregnant I used these on all our windows and skirting boards too!

We moved when I was 38 weeks pregnant. We paid an agency and it was amazing. The flat was cleaner than when we moved in.

get someone else to do it.
I'm 36 weeks and really suffering with SPD/pgp. I get the kids Dad or my mum to do all my housework as its too painful for me to do much.

Wipes seem to be the way forwards at the moment.

We can't afford to pay an agency to do it. My PIL are down for the weekend but I was hoping one of them would help move boxes and the other watch the children while the move happens in case ds escapes down the road when the door is open.

The real problem is that I already feel guilty that I can't run around after the dc or help shift boxes. I feel like I should be helping with the cleaning as everyone else is mucking in.
