  • Do you have any family you can call to help? Maybe nap when your other kids nap and perhaps turn in early at night and let your dh or so watch the other kids.

  • Get a sitter. Deligate the kids to other people so you can get a break. If dad isnt around send them with grandma or aunts or cousins.
    Sleep as much as possible take your vitamins.
    Try emergen-c it is natural energy. Its a powder you put in water and drink. Makes you feel refreshed without caffeine.
    Take iron supplements you probably are anemic.
    Prepare lots of activities the kids can do to keep themselves busy.
    good luck!

  • Also put the kids to bed early so you have more time to yourself or to sleep. 7pm isnt too early.

  • Maybe if you can some how keep them all in one room like the tv room and put on a movie they all like and hook them up with some snacks then maybe you can lay on ur couch and just rest. Even if you don't fall asleep just laying down and resting for awhile will help alot. I have a 3 and a 4 year old and that works for me.Im am always really tired now that im preggo again.
