Coming off a bruising few days in which her future has hung in the balance, May will hope to secure a deal to prop up her minority government when she meets Arlene Foster, head of Northern Ireland's ultra-conservative Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), on Tuesday morning.
With her tally of Conservative MPs slashed to 317 in last week's poll, Mrs May needs the backing of the DUP's 10 members to reach the 320 required for a working majority in the Commons.
"Delay to deal with DUP means likely postponement of Queens speech; and possibly Brexit talks", BBC political reporter Norman Smith said on Twitter.
"I got us into this mess, and I'm going to get us out", May told Conservatives MPs, seeking to ward off any challenge to her leadership.
The DUP is expected to make a better economic deal for Northern Ireland the central factor for any deal, officially referred to as a "confidence and supply deal".
But it comes after John Major, the former Conservative Prime Minister, urged the Prime Minister to be cautious of such a deal with the DUP, warning it risked a return of the violence in Northern Ireland.
May is under pressure to take on a more cross-party approach to the negotiations surrounding Brexit. The Evening Standard, edited by ex-Treasury chief George Osborne, reported that Cabinet ministers have initiated talks with opposition Labour lawmakers to come up with a "softer", less hard-line divorce from the EU.

Barty won her first 11 points on serve, and conceded only one point in her first four service games. Kvitova clung on and the match changed course.
Foster will nearly certainly ask for greater investment in Northern Ireland as part of the deal, as well as guarantees on support for pension plans and for winter fuel allowances for older people.
In a surprise move, Michael Gove was appointed environment and agriculture minister less than a year after the prime minister sacked him as justice minister.
An organiser for the Women's March said the event was "for self-defining women, kids, non-binary people and all who love and support us". "Basically it will be Theresa May signing cheques for the foreseeable future or a monthly direct debit, as it were, into Northern Ireland's coffers".
Sinn Fein's Gerry Adams turned Mrs May's own slogan against her to brand it "a coalition of chaos", adding: "Any deal which undercuts in any way the process here or the Good Friday Agreement is one which has to be opposed".
While Mrs May says they will have no veto on key policies, Mrs Foster says her party has the national interest at heart.
The PM told the backbench 1922 Committee on Monday a deal with the DUP would not affect power-sharing talks in Northern Ireland or LGBT rights.
"Being seen to be the prime minister" could help "shore up her authority at home", according to Colin Talbot, professor of government at the University of Manchester. She took the responsibility for not getting a clear victory and also ensured that she would fix it.
