My son is sleeping SO soundly... Up until tonight I was completely ok with this (hoped for it actually) but tonight is DH's first night back to work and the first night I've been completely alone with my son (3 weeks). Im terrified to fall asleep! He's sleeping so soundly that I keep checking just to make sure he's still breathing.,, oh I'm going to go nuts! (also doesn't help that in stressing about DH, he works on a 911 ambulance and one of their units was shot at tonight...)

I did the same with my first. Do you have a video monitor? I have one and it helps ease my mind knowing I can just check the screen if I get worried. Hope you can get some sleep.

His crib is in our room... I barily even use our baby monitor at the moment since he's so close... It really helps when he occasionally snores, at least then I can hear his breathing

You will learn his breathing and be able to notice a slight change even in a dead sleep.... One of our mommy powers :) I was terrified of sleeping too, my son and I share a room with him across the room sleeping in his crib I wake up of he starts breathing shallow to check on him. It will get better,,, Hope your dh is ok!
