I have an OB appointment today and plan on mentioning it to her. It's the same here, I could nap when he's down but that's my time to sit by myself and relax. I hope it changes 3rd trimester too, but I doubt it seeing as when I was pregnant with DS I started getting struck my insomnia some and couldn't stay asleep worth anything because I was so uncomfortable. But maybe this pregnancy will be different. I just hope to make my goals of finishing the baby blanket and the 2 caps I want to make. My DH said he'd help me go through the baby clothes and so that's a relief.
I'm just glad my DS will let me put him on his bed or leave him there (depends on if he joined us at night) with some toys in the morning when he wakes up. I can get about an extra hour and sometimes an hour and a half of sleep that way. Otherwise we'd be up around 5:30 or 6 in the morning.
