Lots of Sleep!

This first trimester of my pregnancy has been really good. The only main sign that has reminded me that I am pregnant has been that I have been tired - Praise God that I have not been sick! A few weeks ago - around week 5 or 6 - I was completely exhausted. I was praying that I would be able to stay awake through the morning while Brady was awake...he had just moved to one nap a day - so no morning nap for either of us!

Now, I am not feeling exhausted, but I have been tired. My friend, The Baby Catcher, was telling me that she had just learned that mother's are so tired in the beginning of the pregnancy because that is the time that the nervous system is being formed in the baby - and that takes a lot of "work". I thought that was cool that the science community connected that - and it made me not mind the tiredness as much.

Well, last night, I was REALLY tired! I did not get my afternoon nap, because I was volunteering at a pregnancy center. So, after I put Brady down to sleep, I crawled into bed, at 7:30pm, and besides a few interruptions, I did not wake up until 7:00am! That has not happened for so long - but I SO needed it! I hope that you all had a good night sleep too!

I'm discovering myself on numerous blogs...:) rather fascniating and enlightening and encouraging.

I like your name...Promises Fulfilled.

If I ever get to blog I guess I'll use the name "Baby Catcher" as named by Classic Mama's Skarlett.

The first pic of your little one is great! So excited for you!

Take advantage of early nights and naps now.

I can get a nap in the afternoon when Princess naps, because The Little Guy sleeps all the time. But the middle of the night feedings are really tiring me out.

For some reason, he chooses to stay awake for 2 hours in the middle of the night and I haven't figured out how to change that. I know this is just a short season.
