Well there's got to be an issue that she's feeling that is causing her to act out in this way. Perhaps it's due to seeing her stepmom pregnant, perhaps she won't get as much attention so tries to take it out on you with negative attention. It could also be seeing her father and stepmom prepare for the new baby that makes her feel left out. Have a talk with her on how she feels about the soon to be baby.

As for the tantrums, she's old enough to know that her behavior is not acceptable. You need to go down to her eye level and tell her in a mild but firm tone that she needs to behave like a big girl and not throw tantrums and the behavior is not acceptable. Take her to time out, ya it's toddler thing but if she's acting that way, then you need to treat her in that way til she improves.
