TTM #18: Homemaking & Morning Sickness – How to manage your home while pregnant

on January 12, 2018 by Jami Balmet 2 comments

Pregnancy (or illness of any kind) can make it hard to get normal homemaking routines done around the house. It’s often a hard time, especially when you mix in morning sickness! 

So today I’ve got a mom of 9 with us who is going to share her secrets for running a household while experiencing morning sickness! She’s got some great tips.

Surviving Pregnancy! 

Here’s the question that I asked Amy that she answered in the episode: 

“One area that has always been tough for me (and for my listeners) has been keeping up on your home when you are pregnant! It’s so so tough to deal with it all while tired and possibly dealing with morning sickness. Do you have any encouragement for the overwhelmed mama or any advice for things that can help?” 

I really love her advice to simplify! In the beginning, she talks about us pregnant mamas who try and run at full speed even though we are pregnant. I think we need to remember to focus on the fact that this isn’t normal life, we need to slow down and give ourselves a lot of grace. 

My last pregnancy was a surprise so I didn’t have time to plan. But my plan had been, before getting pregnant or at like the 3-5 week mark before the morning sickness really hits, to make a bunch of freezer meals and snacks to get through that first part. 

That’s what I am planning on doing for our next pregnancy! With 5 kids already in the home plus being pregnant, this will help tremendously!!!!

  1. I think it helps having smaller children that you have to take care of. We have five small children also. With the first, I was so sick and could lay around and it was fine. But with each child added I think the distraction of having to take care of someone else helped. It’s hard slowing down while pregnant. If God blesses us with another blessing, I might try to give myself more grace. I just never wanted to use pregnancy as an excuse not to do anything.

    • That’s funny – it was opposite for me! The first was fine because I would lay around and rest lol! It was harder for me to take care of the older children with morning sickness! I love that God made each of us so differently 🙂
