I understand the inadequate feeling.
When I was pregnant with Kody, I had the feeling like I wasn't sure I wanted to end the relationship Ethan and I had up until then--you know, they're your one and only, and your special baby, and they get all your time. I felt like somehow I was cheating Ethan a little. And then to not be able to spend as much time with him or do stuff because I was so tired---it just made me feel worse.
But, children are very resilient. Tell her often that you love her, spend a little time each day doing something special together (that you can sit down for!), and the rest of the time, don't kick yourself if you need to turn on the boob tube so that you can catnap on the couch while she watches. It's just a passing thing, she won't be ruined for life, and soon she'll be enjoying that sweet little baby right along with you.
