When I look at the to do list I feel immensely guilty! Does everyone experience this? or am I just super lazy!?

Housework can wait. Your DD will grow faster than you can imagine. She won't remember if the house was clean or even that you worked a lot. She will remember the time spent with her. If you did spend all your home time "working" she would remember that all you ever did was work.
Some of my ODS best memories from growing up were summers I worked a lot but, spent my home time with him. He doesn't remember me working 45hrs a week. He remembers the day trips we took on my days off. He remembers the water fights we had in the backyard.
Guilt is normal. All you can do is your best and hope it is enough.

yes, housework can wait. delegate will also help. a cleaning lady may also be a solution.
This is something I wanted to do when I was working a lot also. Only had somebody come in once but, it did help a lot!
