  • The only down time I get is when hubby is home. But if I really don't feel well I will get there coloring books out and puzzels and let them play and when there done with that they just play tag or sometimes I will bring there tent down and set it up and they love playing in it

  • Sometimes my daughter would lay on the couch with me and watch a movie, usually didn't make it through the whole thing but atleast for a little while I got to relax. After a while I enrolled her part time in a daycare for 2 days a week. It was good for her to be social with other children and take a break from mommy for a little while, and it was AMAZING for me to get that rest that I so desperately needed.

  • What I ended up doing was suffering through it. My son was 2 1/2 when I got prenant with my second baby. At that time it was all I could do to get him to take a nap so I could and most of the time he wouldn't sleep at all. Not a great time. Sometimes I would sit him down with an activity at the coffee table and I'd lie down on the couch and at least rest my body for a bit. Every now and then he'd climb up there up with me and we'd sleep for about 30 minutes. Sorry I don't have an absolute cure for you. Toddlers and pregnancy are not a great mix!

  • I have a 3yr old and a 1yr old I put the baby in her crib get her cup ready and place toys that are safe in her crib that way she can play as for the 3yr old I let her take out all her toys from the closet to play and I lock all the doors and I lay fall asleep on the sofa and I can get a good 2hr nap.
