Merry, I think it is just fine to need some peace and quite from the little ones, especially when a person, is dealing with all sorts of pain. A 3yr old can drain you pretty quick, so don't feel bad at all about looking forward to some time to yourself.
I'm a guessing that your son will be in daycare all day long, or is it just half days? We had a church in our home town that provided a service called Mothers Day Out, and it provided some much needed relief for mothers who needed the extra rest, or time to get things done for themselves.
