And the sleep results are...

Our girls are rock stars, I tell ya!

Both came in with flying colors on their sleep study results.  No apnea, no issues or any cause for concern.

As Dariya was so tired she spent a little more than usual time in the deepest sleep stage (where you see sleep talking and walking etc)  however, this is when she was banging her head.  I always wondered if she was awake during these episodes. Nope not even close, sound asleep.  At home she has stopped banging her head nightly but we still hear it on occasion.  However, that night in the sleep lab she seemed to bang all night long.  They recorded that she was asleep all but 24 minutes that whole night.  Wow I think I only slept those 24 minutes.  The doctor wasn't concerned about it but, did have a neurologist look at the video of Dariya just for a second opinion that no seizures were going on.

Thankfully she has gone back to not banging here at home.  We switched Dariya back to the crib and put Alayna in the big girl bed and we have two very happy girls when bedtime comes.  Dariya just wasn't ready to give up the crib like we thought she was, she went a few weeks in the bed but then spent most of the time on the floor sleeping.   She is comfortable in the crib and Alayna LOVES being the big girl!

Alayna spent more time awake during her study than Dariya and sat up in bed quite a bit that night.  She had some sinus drainage and a slight cough that night so with the nasal monitor we think she was having a hard time adjusting to breathing.  However, her results were fabulous too which is great news especially in light of her runny nose.

Best news of all is that unless the girls have any sleep issues that arise over the years we never have to do this again!  That makes for one happy mama!!
