If you start to get tired, sit down and put your feet up. Don't do any heavy lifting, and cut down on medium lifting. Also, don't use anything that has strong fumes. If the fumes are stronger than nail polish drying on your nails, then try to not use it.

As long as you're not overworking yourself cleaning should be ok. Just be careful! Your body has ways of telling you when it's too much. If you're tired, rest.... if you're worn out, don't push yourself too much. Especially if you're high risk and had a miscarriage. It's hard when pregnancies don't go well, it;s hard when things are so difficult and sometimes don't workout. I wish you the best! Cleaning can always wait and your husband, mom, or other family and friends would be happy to help I'm sure! Take it easy!

if you are concerned, do as much cleaning as you can sitting down. I was high risk with my last pregnancy towards the end, and they limited the time I was allowed to be on my feet... But if you aren't high risk, then there really aren't any restrictions. Except don't stand on a chair or counter...
