Best of luck girly, my only advice is to distract your self as much as possible. How many things can you do at once?.. Fill the dish washer, fold a load of laundry, get dinner ready and watch your favorite movie? If you sit around just waiting for symptoms you will likely go insane, or at least I know I would.

So what symptoms do you look out for? Just bleeding? I have this fun prego thing where I fall asleep at 930 feeling like it’s the middle of the night, then procede to wake up at 2 am fully rested and alert. It’s lame. Sometimes I get husband up at 630 am but he doesn’t love it. So i’m also killing time.

It varies for me. I was for a long time doing 4 am – 5 am wake up, But most recently that has been creeping up. Weirdly I still go to sleep at 930 most night. Despite my best efferts. Maybe it’s practice running on a small amount of sleep? For the baby? IDK. So are you feeling kicks yet? I calmed down a lot when she started kicking and I could feel it. I have an anterior placenta so it took awhile. But it’s nice that at least once a day she has a little work out and I can tell at least she’s moving.

For what it’s worth I think when I have an epsom salt bath during the day that night I actually sleep a lot longer. I should start journaling that to see.

Sassy9226:  aw I hope you and baby are okay!  My sister fell pretty hard on her stomach in her second trimester and everything was just fine.  Baby is pretty well protected in there! Keep us posted.

Sassy9226:  Thinking of you. How bad was the fall? Everything ok? I know I’ve come close to falling several times and I can’t imagine how terrified I would be to have to wait for symptoms.

My mother slipped in the supermarket on some wet floor when she was like 30 weeks with my brother. Fell really hard on her stomach. My dad wanted to sue but my mom didn’t want to make a big deal over it. This was over 20 years ago. My brother’s fine!
