Ok I've figured her all out now. I can tell my internal sleep clock has completed adjusted to the baby's clock. It seems that she definitely keeps me up every few hours at night, basically feels like she's training me to be on her schedule. So she starts moving around 11:30 until 1am, then again she's up around 4am for about 30 minutes, then up around 6:30am. I try to get a little more sleep and then she's up again around 9 or 9:30am. During the day I feel her moving around again after eating. This morning she obviously was up when I could feel my whole tummy area moved, as though she was doing some kind of whole body stretch. I felt 4 sides move at the same time. Woah what a way to be motivated to get up. So these days I'm probably getting 8 hours sleep in probably 2-3 hour intervals. It doesn't help that she's been kicking my bladder too. Jeff is convinced she may be into drumming and found a really funny onesie with a squirrel on the drums. I've thought of getting it but I'm trying to hold off on that type of stuff. Not very practical especially since the onesie is $17!
I was able to switch OBs in a different group so having a doula will not be a problem. I'm pretty excited about it and the stress went away very quickly. Been doing my pre-natal exercise classes on top of going to PAC. It's been really helping me keep my weight from getting out of hand and will hopefully help when I go into labor.
Yesterday we put the crib together. We've started piling all the gifts in there. We're still debating about the trundle still sitting in the room. With a glider/ottoman and changing table, the room is going to be super tight. My desk is in there still too and will be until I'm officially done with my work which will hopefully be end of Sept or early Oct. We were thinking of buying a car but I changed my mind since I'd rather have J stay home a few extra months after the baby is born. The Lexus is definitely more than enough space for the baby. But maybe when J goes back to work we'll upgrade the Civic ;) He's sill chugging along at LM.
More prayers for my friend who had her baby early. Baby M is doing super well and is in the NICU room that is for fattening up the baby. Hopefully she'll get to her target weight and accomplish certain skills to get her home soon to be with her family. Thanks everyone for praying for her.
