Baby girl is moving all the time lately. I found out at my ultrasound (back at 22 weeks) that I have an anterior placenta, meaning the placenta is attached to the front part of my uterus (closest to my belly button). This is a normal variation and there's nothing wrong with it, but it means that I don't feel this baby's "forward kicks" as strongly as I felt them with Libby. I do feel her kick and stretch out to the side and jump on my bladder, so I know she's in there!
I took the plunge and purchased the Hypnobabies home study course to prepare for the birth and I am so glad I did. I love it already. Most of the written information is old news to me, having had a baby already and especially after having taken a Bradley course. But the hypnosis tracks are WONDERFUL and I can already notice a difference in how I feel about this pregnancy and birth (more optimistic!).
And the deal clencher? It's helping me sleep. I have serious problems when it comes to sleep. As in, I literally did not sleep a wink for a full 48 hours after Libby was born and ever since then, have had awful bouts of insomnia where I sleep only a couple of hours a night. Oh, and that advice to sleep when the baby sleeps? Does not work when you absolutely positively cannot nap during the day. But since beginning this course a couple weeks ago, I have been falling asleep faster than ever at night and even power napping during the day. It's the best thing ever.
These are my own opinions and experiences; no one has asked me to write this.
