Baby is awake!
I read that at 20 weeks babies have already established their sleep/wake cycles that will most likely continue even after they’re born. So I’ve been watching the clock and paying attention to him moving to get an idea of what his sleep cycles are like. What I’ve determined so far:
- Meal time! Like his dad, baby is awake about 1-2 hours before meal times and stays awake for 1-2 hours after wards. This means 6am, 11am, 4pm, and then around midnight. (Midnight is the 4th meal of the day for us pregnant folks).
- Kung Foo Bugaboo lives up to his nickname and is very active in the early mornings and evenings. This means full out belly-morphing kicks, somersaults, and punches for his poor mother.
- The rest of the time he is awake, he is very laid back and is content to gently move around without abusing any nearby organs.
