  • Gosh, okay well, I think whatever you do you should be very well prepared. Plan ahead and anticipate your needs. You have your hands full, so you'll have to do some juggling. You can get through this. If anyone offers some help family nearby, take it and let them do dishes or what not. You'll just have to re-learn how to do things more efficiently and quickly. Don't be too hard on yourself, and if you start to feel overwhelmed, step outside and take a deep breath. (Just don't forget to take the key with you so you don't lock yourself out!) :)
