I'm 30 weeks preg and my Dr dosen't want me lifting my two and a half year old at all and has even advised me against having her in my lap for very long. Any time i try to play with her she wants to be picked up or held and crys when I don't. I feel so bad not being able to do the things she enjoys with her, what can I do to give her the attention she wants without braking Drs orders?

It's hard! You can do things with her in your bed. If you can have someone move a tv in your room so you can watch tv or videos with her. Have toys and books that you can play with in bed. Being in bed is easier than being on the floor but that is another alternative. A rolling chair is another way to be in a position that she won't expect to be held.
I was on bedrest with my youngest. My husband deserted us. I had a 4 year old and an 8 year old. While the 8 year old was at school I had my 4 year old in bed with me the whole time. We watched a lot of TV and movies and I thought I ruined him for life. It turns out he doesn't watch that much TV at all. He can tell you a lot about old movies like what color dresses fairy godmothers wore in Disney movies and whatÂ color head bands the different Teenage Mutnant Ninja Turtles had. He is an adult now.
