Sleeping late

My baby is awake when it's time for me to bed but I enjoyed feeling the movement of my tummy when the baby moves which made me sleep late. I told the practitioner about it and she told me to take a nap as much as possible whenever I have the chance coz I should be sleeping 8 to 12 hours a day. Wow, that's a lot of hours! I was surprised hearing what the practitioner said but she told me not to feel guilty about it coz there's a baby inside me growing so I need to have a lot of rest. I don't know if I can do 12 hours but I'll try to get 8 hrs of sleep if possible. :)

yeah when you are preggy you need lots of rest and sleep as when baby comes you don't get much sleep. Baby sleep will be day time and night time awake :)

pinagbawalan ka ring matulog ng morning, sis? sabi kasi nakaka cause daw ng beri-beri pag natutulog ng morning.

th: yeah, the book said that the baby likes to sleep during the day when the mom is awake and moving coz when the mom moves it's like the mom is rocking the baby. :)

lynn: no, the practitioner told me that it's okay to get up late if I sleep late. basta I need to take a lot of rest while I'm preggy and I read a magazine that says lack of sleep after giving birth can cause post partum depression.
