Pregnancy can bring out your obsessiveness like no other time in your life. Everything is more intense. Hungry is HUNGRY!! Gotta pee is GOTTA PEE!! and clean means CLEAN!! –especially when it comes to your surroundings or getting the nursery ready.
Now that fall is here, you’re probably feeling itchy to take on some projects in the house, spruce up the yard or clear away the clutter. Feel free to go for it!!
However, when it comes to cleaning when you’re pregnant, there’s good news and bad news.
The bad news is that most cleaning products are perfectly safe during pregnancy. Even bleach. So, no need to call in the maid just yet. The good news is that the hubs probably doesn’t know that. So feel free to play the “I can’t clean I’m pregnant” card.
Even though most cleaning products are relatively safe, there are still a few precautions you should take when cleaning during pregnancy to keep you and your baby safe.
Step 1: Make sure that you have good ventilation where you are cleaning.
