Stock up on paper plates and cups, and put some freezer meals in the freezer before so that you don't have to do much and can just rest and play with LO.
This is what I would do- instead of trying to find a way to carry her while you get these things done- spend the time snuggling with her and playing with her when she is needy- and when she isn't needing held, get a few simple tasks done. I also second a ring sling and abd binder if the doc says the binder is ok- to give yourself some support.
