Human infants have to be born too early so that they will fit out. Our babies reallly should be inside for about 9 more months or so. What has happened for all of human history until very recent times Is for mothers and babies to have a symbiotic relationship. Moms breastfeed and both mom and baby benefit from lactation hormones. Moms carry babies almost all the time and sleep with their babies. At around 9-10 months babies start to be able to crawl and eat and start a very slow process of becoming independent with weaning happening between the ages of 3-7. Babies are spaced 3 or more years apart.

Don't count on getting your strength back. It's probablly easier pregnant than once the baby is born. The World Health Org recommends waiting 3 years before trying ttc. It takes that long to recover from childbirth and regain strength. Even if you had an easy recovery the first time it could be difficult this time. There is nothing you can do about having gotten pregnant so soon at this point.
What you can do is set up your home and life so that you can take care of your two babies once your baby is born. Arrange to have help. If you had a difficult birth the first time take childbirth classes and hire a doula. If you aren't still breastfeeding go to LLL meetings or take a breastfeeding course. Simplify your lifestyle. I know this is more info than you asked for but if you didn't understand a 10 month baby being clingy this may help.
