Hi Julie,

We don't live in PA... I am in Seattle, but remember when I had a three year old and a baby..
It was a very challenging time for me. I got to know a couple of neighbors and there was a little eatery a few blocks from home that I would walk to for lunch sometimes. It helped to know when I needed to get out and see others... who were caring and friendly... the folks at the eatery knew the 3 yr. old and had been there when I was pregnant... They loved seeing the baby, too.

But I also had to know when I just needed to be at home and ask my husband about help for a couple of hours from time to time, so that I could get out and take a walk, etc. Being kind to yourself is very important right now... If possible, grab some moments for a hot bath with baking soda and sea salt with iodine and a few pages of a good book. Another bath additive that is amazing is Yarrow. One day during the time of the 3yr. old and baby, I was kind of bitchy to my husband and took some loose leaf yarrow and wrapped it in cheesecloth and put it in a tub of hot water. He came to talk to me and I had become sweet. It was like an ocean wave washed over me... a bit like taking rescue remedy...
I hope this helps.

Blessings,
Kate
