Sleepy mom

Hey ladies! I'm über excited to be a mommy but I'd be lying if I said  I wasn't tired. This is my first swing at the mommy thing and it's the best thing since marrying my husband. My baby boy isn't active in the day time at all. It's almost like he doesn't decide to start his day until 7pm, lol. This is kinda crappy because I'm up all night and I work the normal  7-5. Any tips on how to wake him during the day and get him to let me rest at night? I' love my little angel but I'm sllllllleeeeeeeepppppppyyyyy! I can only imagine his sleeping cycle once he's born.

Lol I don't think there's away to wake up a baby in the womb. My baby was always up at midnight, luckyily I took an unpaid leave when I was four weeks pregnant so I slept whenever and wake up whenever too.

How far along are you. I used to play music and use a flash light on my belly with my first it would wake him up... When i was laying in bed at night is when i played the music and did bonding with my bump and he would react helped me get a few hours a night but i also took Tylenol pm. I just know also the further along you get in general its harder to sleep. Your body is getting ready for when baby is here and needs to eat at night. His luck mamma

Anytime I take benedryl for my allergies it always knocks my boy out. I'm 35 weeks. Sadly it has made him backwards too. You may try taking 1 at night.

he probably doesnt move as much during the day because your movements calm him, so when you stop moving then its his turn:)my lil baby does the same! I also used to get upset for waking up at least once an hour to pee, but realized its also preparing me for the first few weeks of no sleep with baby! these babes are just magnificent!
