    Your 33 weeks pregnant, don't beat yourself up.
    But if you need To plonk the kids in front of the tv so you can get a rest that is ok too!!!!

    My kids have spent most of the afternoon playing with play dough, cupcake trays and buttons ... The rest of the afternoon was spent with the train set ... Hmmm there was a little bit of pirate dress ups in there too!

    I don't feel guilty. You can only do the best you can on any given day. I do try on those days to do cool arts and crafts stuff though so its not just playing with blocks or watching a show on iView.

    I do try to organise for friends with kids to come over for a play though, and DS1 loves it!

    Sometimes but only if we haven't done much that week, which is rare as we usually go somewhere and always have visitors too.
    As a mum I do the best I can and that's all any of us can do.
    You are awesome don't forget that.

    No don't feel guilty! I wish we could stay home all day some days! But DS is usually banging on the front door at 9.00 wanting to go out and i go stir crazy too fairly often. But we don't have a backyard so that makes a big difference, I reckon. Lots of the time we won't actually go anywhere, just get his scooter or trike and ride around the central courtyard, or if it's wet find puddles to jump in, but we don't actually leave the apartment complex.

    I have a 3.5yo and am 35 weeks pregnant, and I'm having the same struggle, and had the same thing when my morning sickness was really bad.

    My son does look bored sometimes and watches too much TV on those days. I'm only home with him two days a week by myself so I figure he's pretty active on the other days, and it's not forever.

    You can only do so much when pregnant and exhausted.
