  • oh honey! I went through the same thing. Try to find a position the baby likes.

  • The reason why the baby is awake at night is because during the day when you are walking it actually rocks the baby to sleep. I think it happens to everyone and eventually you learn to fall asleep with the kicking. Maybe try relaxing a little more during the day. Good luck.

  • Make sure you limit your caffeine and sugar intake in the afternoon/evening. Other than that, just try to find a way to sleep through it or nap during the day. this is just a taste of the nights to come, unfortunately.

  • A warm bath with Johnsons Bedtime bath. I swear by it!

  • Get used to it LOL!!! When I was pregnant with my son he would wake me up with his kicking (I swear he was learning Taebo in there) at about the same times everynight and lo and behold, when he was born, he pretty much stuck to those times! Just think of it as good practice, but if you really need to get some others said, really try to relx before going to bed. A lukewarm bath always helped me, but don't sit in it for too long, calming and relaxing music and try your best to just ignore it. Good luck and Congrats!!
