I am quiet as a mouse on this forum generally, however I greedily read your posts and follow along with your ups and downs. To all of the mamas having a hard time sleeping and getting on these days, I am sending you much love and compassion!
Now I'd like to greedily pick your brains over something that has me confused. My son is 4 1/2 (actually, who am I kidding, he'll be 5 on 3/21). He sleeps either in our bed or in the twin bed we have for him pushed up next to our bed. He has his own bedroom and an additional twin bed. He's literally never ever slept in his own room. None of this is a problem for us in general.
Here's the only issue: I'd like to have access to my comfy wonderful bed during our planned home birth. I'd also like DS to sleep if he's tired, and I'm thinking he needs to be in his own bed. I have no idea what to expect of my desires while laboring at home, but want all comfort measures available. I previously gave birth in the hospital so this is new to me.
Do you all think I should try getting DS to sleep a few nights in his own bedroom before the birth so that if we transfer him to that bed it won't freak him out completely? Or should I just let him get woken up and if he asks to go back to sleep his grandpa (who will have DS duty during the birth) can facilitate getting him settled in there?
Thanks in advance!
