  • it is normal and your doc may tell you to take a benadryl or a tylenol pm to get a little rest. Not every night tho. That's what mine said.

  • My daughter's did a bedtime routine with their babies even in utero. A warm shower, bedtime lotion, a story & or music. Then they would tell the baby it was bedtime. Worked pretty good until just before delivery

  • My daughter tells me that her baby wakes her up at the same time every night and every morning. I told her that I hope she (the baby) keeps the same schedule after she's born because she (my daughter) is used to it now. :) It's nothing to worry about - your baby is perfectly normal. My advice: Grab naps whenever you can now before the baby is born and then nap when the baby naps, if you can.
