32 days go to

Last night I totally freaked out cause I haven't felt baby for few hours. I've heard that they move the most between 28 - 32 weeks, and then it kind of stops. My baby is having playdates with her new imaginary friend often, nothing stopped. Even now when I'm typing this, she is having hiccups so strong the sofa I'm lying on (elevating my swollen right ankle - left one is ok for some weird reason) feels like it's jumping up !!!

We have one of those baby dopplers I got on eBay with a Christmas discount. So I took it out and I couldn't find the heartbeat !! Then B came and of course he can find it in no time. Oh well, I'm one of those worriers. I'm definitely going to get one of those breathing monitors and take infant CPR and memorize all the reaons that may lead to SIDS. When people get new baby, they usually don't sleep and that will work with me, so I can stay up all the time and watch her being safe.

It's so hot here. I couldn't sleep last night so I was up till 4 am (something I dropped few monthsago) and organized some baby shower gifts. I wrote some cards, but i was still not tired. I want to move. Somewhere really really cold. The Arctic actually sounds seriously inviting.

Until today, I do not understand, how from all places on earth, I ended up living in Tunisia for few years. It's so hot there !!! The only explanation I have is that it's kind of expected that it's hot in Africa, so I probably didn't mind that much. I was always busy working so I didn't get to the beach often and I was not even interested. And of course I had a/c wherever I was staying. But still, imagine that I'd ended up there forever !! I would melt by now.

I've heard that the older people get, the more cold they get. Me, I'm the opposite. I think the older I get, the more I hate summer. I am really envious when I hear people love being hot. I think if I'd love being hot I would probably enjoy the summer, too. But that's not the case. I'm going to suffer through it, and I can't even eat ice-cream. It's 11 am and I'm already melting. I dont have desire to do anything. Hopefully it will get cold soon ! Some rain would be awesome, too.

I put one of those baby monitor things on my registry. The one that goes under the mattress and alarms if there is no movement for a certain amount of time. My little cousin...she is about 22 or so lost her baby last year. Her baby was about 6 months old. Went down for a nap and didn't wake up. Even worse the mom was in school and her baby was being watched by her aunt. Scary! You always here about it but never have it hit so close to home ya know.

Be prepared with those monitors those, Monika - they often fail in terms of going off too often and beeping for no reason!!! It's good to be informed, but new mamma's need rest too, or else you'll be very sorry and even have trouble BFing!
I kept Alexys in my room for her first three months in her playpen, and then moved her into her room by herself with just a regular monitor. I do find myself laying there awake some nights waiting for her to wake up - and often go check on her still. It's strange when a baby sleeps through the night for the first time - and you do too!!!
