It happened just recently, Monday night, December 8th. We are in the process of moving. I was so tired from packing that I laid down with my infant daughter around 10 pm. My daughter is 4 months and she is a preemie so she doesn't crawl yet.
Around 3 in the morning I was awakened by the sound of small feet running to my bedroom door, I thought it was my other daughter who is 2, so I get up a little upset, I open my bedroom door and nothing... There is no one there, so I go to my girls room (I have 6 kids total) and there is my two year old asleep between her sisters. So I go back to my room convinced I must have been hearing things.
My daughter started to fuss so I gave her her pacifier and got back into bed and fell asleep. (Let me assure you, that although she was asleep with me, I had her in the middle of my queen size bed a stack of pillow's on one side and me on the other) At 3:30 I was awaken by her crying. It was a loud sharp cry babies give when they are either frightened or in pain, the only thing was it was muffled.
I thought that maybe the covers or the pillows were on her, so I moved the blanket. Nothing. I move the Pillow's nothing. I get this uneasy feeling, I start moving boxes in my room, I can hear her but she is muffled. I happen to catch a glimpse of her foot UNDER the bed so I pulled her out.
How did she get there?
She was under the bed towards the head board in the middle. When I picked her up she had this really, weird smell, it smelled oily. I was very scared, I checked on my other kids and they were still asleep, I let my dog Sugar in and she ran straight for my room and was growling and trying to get under the bed.
My husband works nights, and when he came in in the morning I was still awake. Naturally. I don't think he believed me, but when I got home from work later in the day he said, "I moved the bed to get the frame to the new house look I found the baby's pacifier... It was in the same spot you said you found her on" the pacifier was oily. There was this perfectly round spot on the wall that was oily and smelled really foul. I don't know what it is or what happened, I have slept in the living room since that night.
I still get this feeling that some thing is watching. I don't leave the baby by herself, and I have caught the dog growling at something unknown in my room. I appreciate any help.
