Raising a Blended Family

Just for the record…

on April 24, 2012

Just wanted to get down for the record that tonight, at 17w5d, the baby officially threw its first partay* in my womb.  Or at least, that’s what it felt like. It could also have been a small set of fireworks- a series of pops in rapid succession, all on one side, that lasted for about 7 seconds and was gone.  So you know, either or- we’ve either got a pyrotechnic baby on our hands or a raucous party animal.

Sadly, the timing of this kicking makes it very clear that baby is already bucking the more traditional schedule of actually sleeping during nighttime hours and clearly choosing to be awake, alert and active during this time instead.  We are so, so screwed, sleep-wise, in a few months.


*not actually the first movement I’ve felt. Just some of the most solid movement I’ve felt so far, and definitely the most at once.
