I'm so worried. Everytime I put her on her tummy she screams and cries like she's being tortured or something. What should I do? Also how often do you people spend time playing with your babies? I know this is weird but I feel guilty when I have time to myself. Does that make any sense? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Do you like doing push-ups? It's the same thing for a baby :-) It is necessary for their development, despite the fact that so many babies hate it. She will eventually calm down with it as it won't be such a difficult task for her as she gets stronger and more skilled at holding her head up. It's exhausting so only do it for a few minutes at a time a few times per day. I like to put my son on his tummy for a minute or two each time a change his diaper while I am cleaning him up (it you do this, make sure she's on a surface where she can't roll off and fall). I law him on his back and raise his arms over his head as well as gently make bicycle motions with his legs for other exercise while singing to him and talking to him. He's 2.5 months old and he's learning to grasp a ball between his hands and hold on to a rattle. I do feel guilty when I get time to myself but shouldn't. You need "me" time in order to stay sane!
