It is possible that your husband isn't trusting you/supporting you because you are so anxious and not acting like yourself. At least partly?
Can you spell out some specific way he can help you? "Will you brainstorm with me ways that I can get more sleep?" "When I get really worried and cry a lot it would help me if you would comfort me by ____"
I also suggest that you try to find some more support IRL. Could you go to a Le Leche League meeting? Or find a parent group through MOPS or a local hospital or something?
It sounds like your mom is a huge source of stress right now. Don't be afraid to send her to stay with another relative or to change her return flight date ... to tomorrow. You need to do what is best for you and the baby and not worry about her feelings. At the very least, keep her away from alcohol. Not all Moms make good company for their daughters after a baby is born - you have found out the hard way that your mom is not one of them.
