I'm considering changing from calling this baby "new baby" to "elusive baby"... because it is an elusive one. Ryan has only felt it kicking maybe once or twice, and I really haven't caught it moving from the outside all that often either. New baby also was moving around almost all day Friday - from distracting me during my first meeting at 9am until giving me a kick good-night when I went to bed, there were maybe a few half-hours of quiet, but that was it. And yet despite actively trying to catch its movement on the outside, new baby rarely kicked twice in the same place, so I only caught it a couple of times.
With only a couple weeks left in second trimester, I guess I'm giving up on the "second trimester burst of energy" I had been looking forward to, because I'm still completely overcome with fatigue. I felt like I was barely functioning some days, especially after the random night that Josie shrieked in her sleep every hour (and woke me up) all night. But then the next night, I slept straight through to 4:30am until my first wakeup, and I felt awesome! I was refreshed and super excited to start the day, even at that hour. Funny how much better something can seem when it comes on the heels of something even worse ;)
