My husband and I were thrilled when I became pregnant with twins. We had wanted two children close in age, and it just did not get any better than how it worked out. We had agreed that I would be a stay at home mom and take care of the house as well since he is paid well at his job. I knew that I could handle it, but I was still so happy when my friends all chipped in to pay for a cleaning company in Singapore to come to my condo on a regular basis for the first six months after I gave birth as well as the last two months of my pregnancy.
At first, I honestly did not think that it was something I was going to need. However, I also did not think that I was going to get as big as I was either. It started getting hard for me to do certain things around the seventh month of my pregnancy, so I was thrilled when the cleaning person started showing up once a week in my eighth month of pregnancy. It felt so good to not have to worry about running the vacuum or dusting everything.
I thought that I would get my energy back after giving birth, but it seemed I had even less then. I was even more grateful for the cleaning help at that point. I had thought the twins would sleep a lot, but I was wrong. Don’t get me wrong, I love every minute of being their mom, but I was also loving the cleaning help that I was getting on a regular basis. I liked it so much that when the six months were up after giving birth, my husband decided to continue on with paying for the cleaning person to continue coming out once a week.
