3 AM and NO sleep!!

It is 3 AM and my little angel girl is in the middle of one of her exercise routines and I cannot sleep. I am SO tried but she is really moving and grooving in there! I just love feeling her roll around.

My parents and in laws are arriving at around 9:00 am so I am really hoping to get a bit of sleep before then once she finishes her routine! LOL! I remember the doctor talking to us today about the kick count. He was telling us that an active baby is such a good thing and where there is concern is if you do not feel any movement for an extended period of time. At that point they suggest doing a kick count where you lay down and count the kicks. I think you should have something like 10 in an hour. Well Thank the Lord that this NOT a problem here! I think she is kicking 10 times in about a 45 second period of time! She must really be happy in there!

I am so thankful for this tremendous blessing. A healthy baby girl, truly an answered prayer. Ok, I am off to try and get some MUCH needed sleep....IF she will let me!

Jen you look so pretty pregnant. I bet your nails and hair is great. I particularly remember this when I was expecting my babies. Hope you got some much needed rest. You just have to get rest during the day from here on out as your progress. Interruptions in sleep possibility could last on and off for the rest of your pregnancy. Enjoy your family.

Enjoy this it truly is the greatest miracle and BESTEST (if that is a word)...part of being a woman! Becoming a MOM!
