Peanut Update and Sleeping Woes

Other bloggers probably know that sometimes it's difficult to blog when there is something significant that he/she isn't ready to talk about publicly. My doctor (who has been fantastic) is switching my care to a Perinatologist, which is essentially an Obstetrician that specializes in High Risk/Maternal-Fetal Medicine. This will be my third doctor during this pregnancy, and I'm only 22 weeks along. Hopefully it will be the last switch. Why am I going to a specialist? Well, that's a blog entry for another day. I'm still not quite ready to share the details with the world, but that day will likely come. Ultimately, we're all going to be okay, so please don't worry too much. My belly is growing, the baby is moving, and my second trimester has been mostly good to me.

This picture is from our first ultrasound at 20-weeks. The little peanut wasn't really cooperating for pictures, so hopefully we'll get a good profile shot when we have another ultrasound in a couple of weeks. Hopefully my labels help you see something other than a Rorschach test.

One of the more exhausting issues lately is Harper's current (non)sleeping habits. He has been typically waking between 5 and 6 am. When it comes to bedtime at 8pm, he resists with every bit of energy he can find. This leads to not falling asleep until between 9 and 1030pm. I'm sure it's just a phase, but we've all been awfully tired for the past month or so. I'm just thankful that he's still (mostly) taking afternoon naps. And at least this leads to fun photo ops. I only wish I could have gotten a picture of his little bum in the air when he fell asleep just inside of his closed door. We had to completely wake him to get inside. Below is just a sample of the different places he's been falling asleep out of total exhaustion.

A very early morning snooze

A statement of protest

Couldn't stay awake, even at 8am

Harper: sleeping on me
Me: plotting a smooth escape

Asleep at the top of the stairs

Finally tuckered out in a tight corner of his bedroom

The little dude really wanted to remain part of the evening activities

Snoozing on the couch for a nap

My favorite: Looks safe, huh?
