Ponyboy - news to date

Hey all, here I am, still in the 'newborn tunnel of doom'. Although, I must admit, the 'newborn tunnel of doom' is nowhere near as bad second time around. I think I'm a bit more tired because you can't just have a sleep whenever you want, but I don't feel as anxious about what the baby wants/needs.

Ponyboy is pretty low maintenance so far - the MonkeyFish seemed to decided that he didn't need to go to bed, ever, which was way more hassle than Ponyboy (who sleeps for 2 hours out of every 3, and the other hour is spent being fed anyway). Thankfully the 4.07am starts seemed to have stopped and the MonkeyFish is now sleeping in until the reasonable time of 5.30am.

Having children is like living in an alternate reality. A reality where 5.30am is a reasonable time.

Anyway, overall we are doing ok - the baby is getting fatter, the MonkeyFish hasn't been sent to live with the gypo's and Buster hasn't been sleeping on the couch. What more can you ask for?

For the man, the price of children is sleep, peace & quiet The price is a bit steeper for women. But they seem to keep wanting to have them for some strange reason.

I am 21 weeks pregnant and my baby has decided to determine my sleep from inside - waking me up at 5:30am every morning. I thought this might prepare me for lack of sleep when he is born but after reading your post I realise how naive I am. Thanks for the reality check!

Maree Rose - just wait until you are in the last three weeks - then you can't go for more than 2 hours without having to pee - that's preparation for sleepless nights!
