Triplets three weeks old, husband going back to work = miserable mamma

Hi all,

So I'm not sure if any of you knew I was pregnant with triplets, but for those of you that did, they were born three weeks ago!

Believe me, I feel blessed to have three healthy babies, but I am so absolutely miserable. These aren't my first babies. I have a 2 and 4 year old. I feel like I should be used to this, but I am going insane. My husband is going back to work on Monday and I don't know how I'll possibly make it through. 

My oldest two are in nursing school and I do have a nanny 6 am - 6 pm (split shift between two women). I also hired my niece to come over in the afternoons after school. My friends and family have been coming over to help out, cook/clean, and make us meals.

It's pathetic that even with all the help I have, I still feel like I have no control.

Anyone have any advice?

Congrats.whether you have help or not giving birth and having a newborn is exhausting. To have triplets must be so much harder. Give your mind and body time to heal. Three weeks is still very much a healing process for the mom.

Wow congratulations to you and delivering healthy babies.

I honestly have no advice as I never had multiplies and dealing with one little one and then other kids are a handful let along thinking about your situation but I do wish you the best and I am sure you will find your rhythm.

I don't know if the have a group on cafemom with mutliples but maybe you can search and see.

Good luck I am sure you will be fine especially with the help that you will be getting.
