6 Wks. 4 Days: Hubby Going Back To Work. Alone All Night W/ Twins! EEK!
6 wks. 4 Days: No Sleep For Poor Ol’ Mama Soon? Daddy Going Back To Work!
Mood: Frightened 😯
(A Picture of my beautiful 6 1/2 week old, baby girls sleeping. Which is rare during the day anyhow, at the same time! Aren’t they gorgeous? Still can’t get over how different they look)
The girls at 6 weeks and 4 days old, slept together in unison last night from their last feeding at 9:00 to a surprisingly late 2:30 am…WOWSER! Can we do that every night? pretty please?? ha ha. My husband goes back to work in two days, and I’m honestly a mess over it.
He’s been such a great help, support, and an amazing daddy at all hours, I don’t know how I’ll manage without him. No he’s not moving or anything like that, but he works all night long, so nights will be all me, and then he’s gotto get some sleep in the morning hours, and then again in the evenings before work. I simply don’t know when that will allow me my sleep, I mean I’m super thankful I have gotten 6 weeks of a decent amount, but when he’s gone, I just don’t know, I’m not a person who functions very well without sleep, my body likes 8 hrs, but that is a thing of the past for sure.
I’m just praying they will continue this routine, and maybe I can get at least 4-5 hrs uninterrupted at some point soon, until then, I guess I’ll be wishing I was a coffee drinker to get me through the day, but unfortunately caffeine just makes me jumpy, so I’ll have to just stay strong and hope for the best.
When did your twins start sleeping through the night ladies, if at all, ha ha, or give me any and all tips on how to avoid the strain of the sleepless nights, w/o any help. I predict things will get better from here on out. Wish me luck!
OH, on a brighter note, though still up 6-7 lbs. my body is coming back together, I’m elated with it’s recovery thus far. Still binding w/ my best kept secret, soon to be revealed!
