When I went to college, I wanted a single room as I had some sleep issues. I don't need much sleep and have never slept through the night without waking up. Alas, my dear boy may have inherited this problem. He falls asleep like a champ, but doesn't have much staying power. He wakes up many times during the night - he looks so peaceful there doesn't he? I have tried a zillion things and have read a million books, but have just resigned myself to the idea that my babe might just not be a good sleeper. I still love him and will keep him.
I had a midwife appointment on Monday and I am "perfect" I was at exactly 26 weeks and looked good. I also toured the birth center and am excited about it. I am encouraged to eat, drink and do whatever can help me during labor. There is a tub, shower room, birthing ball and 2 rooms. There also is a large family area and mini-kitchen spot too. They keep me for 3 or so hours post-birth and then I can go home! They also do a home check a few days after as well. How great does that sound?
