thoughts on TT with small children

I have a 12 yr old a 1 1/2 yr old and a 5 month old and I am looking toward November for my procedure. Is it ridiculous to attempt this with minimal help? I have about two weeks tops that I can request, hire and exhaust all family members before I have to change diapers and make meals. I am an at home mom so returning to work is well returning to childcare etc.. I'm not looking to milk it or baby myself, I'd like to know what I am looking at realistically. I've had a csection and gallbladder surgery this year and I was able to care for my kids 5 days after my csection with a lot of pain, but I can manage pain with painkillers they don't make me loopy or anything.   I just don't want my belly to rip open...any thoughts?   TIA    please excuse typos and grammatical errors I'm typing with one hand and two babies lol

Hi I just had my tt on 6/29/2012 and I have a 8 month old. I also had muscle repair and am not completely standing up straight as of yet. I too had the same concerns with having my little one and I am glad I didn't reschedule my procedure the recovery isn't that bad the only thing is u don't to over do it with pulling and picking your 5 month old up. I have an amazing support system but by day 8 I was puking my 8month old up while I was sitting down. People can pass ur baby to you just don't lift him/ her from a freestanding position. Hope this helps.
