Am I doing to much?

I have a 10 month old baby girl, she's adorable and she moves around a lot. I am currently 31 weeks pregnant with a baby boy. My baby girl have me moving so much that I'm scared I'm putting to much pressure on my belly. Am I hurting him by moving,bending down constantly and picking her trying to clean up?

You are not hurting your baby by doing your daily tasks. Your body may tell you to slow down a little and you need to listen to that, but as long as you feel good you are fine to do all your daily tasks you normally do. Staying active will actually help your delivery and recovery. The general rule of thumb that doctors go by as long as you are having a normal healthy pregnancy is you are safe to do whatever activities you did prior to getting pregnant after you get pregnant. Sometimes you have to slow down the activity or do a little less as your pregnancy progresses, but in general (again as long as normal healthy pregnancy) you are safe to carry on that activity.
