i may never sleep again

this baby waits until i turn out the lights and close my eyes to start playing in there. she rolls, flips, kicks, punches, elbows. etc. I can lay in bed for a couple hours winding down in the evening reading or watching tv. the second i decide to sleep its over! i got 2 hours last night and 2 more this morning after dh went to work, before my dog woke me up. he gets ansy in the mornings as soon as he knows i "should" be awake and does the job for me if i havent roused. he climbs in bed with me once DH leaves and precedes to harass me when he is done sleeping. i then got a call from a telemarketer, automated of course, at 8:30 am, alerting me that if i am between the ages of 45 and 65 they would like to talk to me about burial options. are you kidding? and DH wonders why i leave the ringer on silent 95% of the time. so between DHs alarm, the phone, baby, and dog, I may as well stick to daytime napping... but just look at these faces... how can you be angry?

That totally stinks! I had the same thing with Noah at night but this baby is much more mellow so far - plus the placenta's on the front so I don't feel as much as I did with him. Sleep is sooo important when you're preggo and already cranky! Hope you can get some zzz's soon!!

Re: i may never sleep again

i know exactly how you feel. I thought I would never feel this baby move (my placenta is anterior (infront)) but now all of the sudden he is kicking me and playing with my bladder all night long. I dont get naps with 4 other kiddos so I am exhausted and ready to pass out by the time dh gets home.

Re: i may never sleep again

I feel your pain. I have a siamese cat that decides that when i roll over it's time to get up and does that meow that siamese cats are well known for. Right before i go to sleep little martin is kicking/moving like a champ to the point where you can see it from the outside. Are you drinking/eating before bed because i notice about an hour or less after i eat little martin starts kicking like crazy. I'm on meds that i have to take before bed otherwise i would totally exclude the late night food and drink.
