Other than that this kid has been treating me really well so far. We went for our 4 month check up at the midwife yesterday and everything appears to be going great. I'll probably never get sick of hearing that racing little heartbeat. We also discussed a few important things like deciding not to get any scans unless there is reason for concern (and of course if there is even the smallest doubt we will get one immediately). It's always difficult to decide things that go against the norm, but all three of us feel very confident in our decision.
I'm starting to establish routines now that help me get the most out of my days. For example I know now that if I'm in bed any later than 10:30pm, I'll be dragging my feet all of the next day and won't be productive. For that I am awake at 6:30am most mornings with the dawn chorus (a big garden and forest surrounds our house so the birds go a little crazy) and a flood of sunshine. Serves me right for not wanting curtains in the bedroom (because I LOVE to lay in bed at night and gaze up at the stars). I also know that I need to keep food on hand at all times. I've always had to eat a lot and frequently, but I get the feeling like it's going to get a lot more extreme soon!
P.S whoa just as I was starting my dinner (and finishing this post) I really felt the kid move properly for the first time. What a weird sensation! I had to jiggle around on my seat a little bit to get it to settle down, otherwise I'm not sure I could have finished eating!
