I see you all talking about 20 pounds of weight gain, thats fantastic, but it doesnt seem like enough to me, because I always gain a lot in pregnancy. With DD I gained 60 pounds- lost 35 in 6 weeks, then with DS I gained 40 and lost it all but 5 pounds within 6 weeks. At my last appt I was up 35 pounds at 30 weeks. Im not worried about it, except that its really tough to find extra large maternity pants that dont have the full frontal belly panel (which I HATE), and Im growing out of my favorites. I know the weight will come off rather quickly after the baby is born, and the last few pounds will wait until a year or so after like before.
Sleep sucked so bad last night... DS went to bed really early and so woke up at 330 AM to toss and turn until about 5. Im glad he stays in bed when its bedtime and doesnt want to go play, but there was no sleeping for me... Right about the time he went to sleep, the baby woke up and started tossing and turning and hitting and kicking, so that kept me up. I dozed off a few minutes and had an awful nightmare, and then I was up until 630 or so. At 930 when I woke, DH said I could go back to bed for a while, but I still couldnt go back to sleep, so I just got up.
<<<THIS IS JUST CREEPY>>>About the nightmare I had... It was so awful, and so weird. I dreamt someone was in our bedroom, standing over the bed rustling a shopping bag, making noise. He was walking around the room watching us sleep and taking things. I was trying to wake DH but I couldnt move, couldnt talk... Then I woke up, just terrified. Noone. Noone could get in my house without waking up our dogs and setting them off anyway... So I calm myself down, try to relax. I have to pee, so I start to get out of bed. When I get to the bottom of the bed, I put my had on the footboard to help me get out, and I touch something that doesnt belong there, and it MAKES THE NOISE I HEARD IN MY DREAM... I grabbed it and it was a yellow post-it note, blank, stuck tot he footboard of my bed.
It was not there three hours before when I got up to pee. I know that, cause I get out of bed the same way every time, and I always think about how its not good for the footboard to do that. Kimber was sleeping peacefully next to the bed, DH might as well have been unconsious. I went pee, but it was a LONG time before I went to sleep.
There were other post it notes on our blanket chest at the foot of the bed that I saw in the morning. Dh says he has no idea where they came from. I dont either. The kids werent playing in the room last night before bed, Zack fell asleep early and when we went in, Kimber went to sleep next to him... So Im befuddled.
Anyway, Im glad the windows were all closed last night. If they hadnt been, and I hadnt KNOWN the doors were all locked, I never would have gotten back to sleep.
