Oh, mamas, I'm in the same boat. 31 weeks, and just sloooooooow. And easily tired. My DD is 3, too, and very active, so it's hard to say that mama just can't do something.
She's going to preschool three days a week now, and I think that's going to help. She gets lots of time and space there for physical play and big messy stuff that I can't manage at home right now. So I don't feel so guilty about doing quiet cuddly things with her when it's just the two of us.
I've explained that growing our new baby is hard work for my body, and that's what's making me tired and why I can't pick her up and tote her around. She seems to get that, and knows that after the baby comes, it'll be better.
