Oh, I feel for you.
Okay, look. Make up some hard boiled eggs and keep them in a bowl in the fridge. Chop up some cheese or turkey (highest in protein of the basic cooked meats) and put them in a bowl as well. Everytime you open that fridge, eat a little bit of protein.
If you can stand pate, buy it and eat it. I love it actually. It will help your iron too.
I took yellowdock everyday. It is some nasty tasting stuff. A friend wildcrafted it for me and I am glad she did. It kept my iron levels up and I didn't have to buy a ton of floradix (which will help too with iron).
In the middle of the night, when you pee, go and eat protein or drink a protein shake but DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES buy protein mix with ANY, i repeat, ANY sugar in it. WHole FOods has a soy protein mix without any sugar in it. Its their label and about 10 bucks. I mixed it with Organic milk.
I am not a big milk or red meat person but I consumed in during the twin pregnancy. I'd buy organic beef tips and saute them up with garlic and eat them for breakfast with a side of kale (lightly sauted with balsamic vinegar) Or ground beef or a bowl of ground turkey.
I started getting 120 grams of protein a day but didn't really feel that great so I upped it to 150 and found that was exactly what I needed to feel good everyday.
Get that protein in all day and all night long. It will make a difference. Try getting some yellowdock tincture and taking some daily. Get that iron in too anyway you can but make sure it is absorbable and do not slack on that water.
DOn't be overwhelmed okay? once you find the routine and amount that is right for you, you will start to feel great and won't even notice how much protein you are acually consuming.
When my twins placentas arrived, my midwife said "These are the healthiest placentas I have ever seen in my entire time as a midwife..and they are from a twin pregnancy to boot." She said that my nutrition made all the difference in the world in that pregnancy and birth.
NOt to sound like a broken record...but seriously...NO sugar, okay?
Oh and I hear you on the tired thing. When my twins were born I had an 18 mo and a 4 yo. Chamomile tea is a great calming tea for toddlers. I would give it to them as their liquid from about 4pm until bedtime and give them a lavender bath to help them calm down.
