I've cut down on some of the usual things that were my chores, such as grocery shopping (I can't reach anything on the bottom shelves anymore!). But otherwise, I'm doing pretty much the same stuff... still walking to get the mail, still doing the dishes, still making dinner--although we split that 50/50 anyhow. I am still working full-time, through the end of this week, but that's where I know I've really been particularly flexible. "Full-time" is a relative term when an office chair isn't comfy for more than a few hours and you know that work stress will keep you so wound up that there's no way to let your muscles relax.
So while all the home chores are pretty much the same, I'm taking a bit of extra for myself at work.
However... that all said to say... I'm 39w right now, due on Mar 25th. Next week, I sort of expect that there will be far more whining on my part, which will mean far more "stepping up" on my DH's part. I might be able to get away with not doing dishes for a few days.
ETA: I just glanced at your blog... You're doing PLENTY, mama! If I was doing that much house stuff, I'd be demanding some palm-fronds and fanboys for all my troubles. Wowza.
Do you guys have a grocery store near you that delivers? (Like safeway.com or something?) Maybe just for these last few weeks when you're uncomfortable and he's not feeling up to some of the big tasks like grocery shopping?
You are only 38 weeks - is there some reason to expect your fluid would be low? I've never heard of fluid being checked prior to 41 weeks in a low-risk pregnancy (ETA: I saw on another thread that you are being monitored for low fluid - is it a recent development? Sorry you are having to deal with that and hope you can avoid induction!) Trying castor oil at 38 weeks if you don't have any clear signs of imminent labor will probably only lead to you hanging out on the toilet a lot....
