I know overdoing it is not good for the pregnant woman or her baby......but im not clear how it effects bub's in utero?Im eating really well and doing everything by the book, im just super active with a toddler who doesnt stop, i dont like sitting around "putting my feet up" im constantly on the go and my mum has told me many times to "slow down, its not good for bubs".....how?I just tell her that my body is used to being active, pre-pregnancy. My middie even asked if i play any sports as my resting HR is perfect.I enjoy being busy and i get bored easily. So "resting while pregnant with a toddler"....what do you do? lol the words almost dont look right together in a sentence!!

I don't think you do have to rest. I am 33 weeks pregnant with number 4 and I don't get much rest!
I think the general guideline to work by is that if you feel like you need a rest, then have one. If you are feeling fine and have no other health issues then I say continue what you are doing.
You're pregnant, not sick ;-)

I was told by my Obs to rest because I was bleeding heavily on and off from 5 weeks to just a few days ago ( now 14 weeks!)
My DD is 2.5 and I tell you, it's very difficult to do!
Really I can answer your question in one word : TV
I have felt like the worst mum, so guilty for the amount of TV she has been watching but it can't be helped I really want this bub to survive as I lost one in Feb of this year I was 14 weeks also.
So i think..... your body will let you know if you need to take it easy like PP said.
If you are not feeling sick, or tired, or bleeding I think you can do as much as you like really.
My friend was walking 10 Kms a day to and from job her whole pregnancy. She put on 7 kilos in total. She's crazy I think lol but i think it shows that everyone deals with pregnancy differently..... Good luck! I wish I had your energy..... I am soooooooooo over 'resting' its not even funny!

I was the same as you - no rest with a spirited 3 year old and working 4 days a week. The only real downtime I had was a weekly one hour accupuncture session. As soon as those needles were in I was out like a light! Woke myself snoring a few times as well.... LOL.
