Since I finished work a couple of weeks ago I've been nesting furiously, trying to get lots of DIY done in the house and garden e.g. painting and chopping bushes / branches down etc., I feel fine but my Mum and DH are getting very annoyed with me, and keep telling me not do so much because "i might have this baby too early" I was 2 weeks late and induced with both DS1 & DS2, so maybe I'm being a bit blase about this pregnany....? Which physical chores do you think are too much to be doing at 33 weeks pregnant?
Yes, that sounds like a good idea! Thing is, I can't seem to help myself at the mo - I have anal lists of all the stuff to do before the babies born and i feel very satisfied as I tick of each job that I've done
I sanded 3 floors with one of those industrial machines and then gave them three coats of varnish each,at about 36 weeks.
I think it's worse for your health to sit on your arse stressing about jobs you want/need done tbh.
Hoovering is really bad for sciatica (sp?) - I still get it terribly (sciatica not hoovering!!) although and sitting here trying to figure out whether to finish the ironing or actually hoover the hallway!!! - see if I hoover it now I can go at it with the no wet wonder foamy stuff and it will be lovely and dry for the morning!!!
I am almost 37 wks pregnant and single, with a teenage daughter. Baby's dad is not on the scene so I have no male to call upon to do the yuk jobs. In the last month I have packed up and moved house, decorated new house, mowed lawns, emptied cat litter trays, strimmed bushes,done all housework & cleaning, lugged bags of heavy shopping every week and caused my mum to shout at me loads Have even had the "You're going to lose this baby" line.
The bottom line is that baby and me are fine. In fact, he was measuring a bit small but in the last few weeks (amid all the activity) he has had a growth spurt, is now heavily engaged and doing great, finally!
While climbing ladders and things are to be avoided in case you fall, I don't think women are supposed to just sit down and eat chocolate (unfortunately!) They certainly don't in other cultures and didn't in this country if you look at previous generations.
If you can keep as fit as possible, all the better for afterwards. just be sensible. If it hurts, don't do it. (and save the chocolate as a reward for all your hard work!! )
