DS #3 was born 12 days ago. He was my third c-section, plus I had my tubes tied. I am just not getting back to normal as quickly as I did with the other boys. Maybe it's age, or maybe it's because of the tubal. I don't know.
Anyway, I just sent MIL home (3 hours away) with my 2 year old. There is no way I could take care of him all day the way I feel right now. I can't lift him, or even walk very fast. My six year old is at school all day and is super helpful when he is home, but my two year old is a typical toddler who has a new sibling. He loves his little brother, but has little to do with me.
I feel so sad and guilty. He was thrilled to go away with Nana, but I still feel bad. This isn't how I pictured our new family of five. :-(
