In need of some mommy support.

Maybe it's just a little support that I need. Idk.
My newborn (1month) is showing signs of colic, crying unless he's being held/rocked, etc...
My toddler (2-1/2 years) is running fever, cranky, whining unless he is being held/rocked.
I have an impacted wisdom tooth. I can barely open my mouth without excruciating pain and constant headaches (unable to see the dentist until Thursday, and even then he can't do much besides scheduling an extraction).
Hubby works offshore, so he isn't home for another 14 days.
Trying to figure out how I will even make it through an extraction (he will need to take all 4 wisdom teeth, plus probably one more tooth that is causing overcrowding). How on earth will I go through surgery and then come home to care for two little ones(not to mention having to pay for all this). I know it's not impossible, but I am beyond stressed right now. Ugh! Worried about my little one getting whatever his big brother has also. Let the praying begin!! Not sure how much more I can take on so little sleep.

I am glad that you at least have your mother in law to help you. I am very proud of you for being so strong and for holding it together for your little ones - WELL DONE. As for your wisdom teeth - all four of mine came out over a period of six years so I completely understand your pain. I really hope things get better for you as I know how hard it can be. If you ever need to chat or just need some positivity you can email me on ykhayward@gmail.com. I hope you have a wonderful day xxx

My mother in law helps as much as she can. My 2yo doesn't want anything from anyone besides me and the baby won't fall asleep with anyone else, which makes things difficult. I'm handling pretty well and holding together when they need me but as soon as I get them both sleeping is when it hits me just how overwhelmed I really am. I think if I wasn't in so much pain myself I would be able to handle much more. Thanks I can use all the positive vibes I can get
