What chores do you hate while pregnant?

Nesting before labor - pregnant woman

That's the question I asked on Twitter and Facebook this week, mostly as a way to avoid my own housekeeping for a few minutes. The answers I got really surprised me:

  • "...anything that means I have to get on the floor and get back up again (when heavily pregnant!)"
  • "Cleaning out the fridge. *barf*"
  • "Bathroom! The tub, the toilet, the floor! All of it. Yeah and bending and scrambling in tight places..."

While there are a few examples of staying safe while cleaning in pregnancy, like avoiding certain chemicals, being in a well ventilated place, etc. Most of us are healthy enough to clean. (Sorry!)

What chore do you hate?

Anything where something rubbed against my belly such as working at the kitchen sink or trying to clean the tub – I found anything pressing on my belly painful. Also anything with any type of odor – I had hyperemesis gravidarum and even on my better days when I felt like I could accomplish something if any odor was involved that did me in immediately.
