  • i don't know that i can help but i can say i know how you feel. well i just have 1 toddler at home, but my husband works evenings so it's just us 2 5 nights a week. getting dinner on the table is a big challenge because i'm nauseous all the time. all i do is try to get to bed by 8pm to get a little extra sleep but i also haven't been sleeping well *sigh*. good luck!

  • I would take a nap in one of the psychologist offices. The office manager would wake me up 5 min. before I needed to be back to work. That really helped me.

  • I worked full-time with all my pregnancy's through the whole thing. I just made sure I took my prenatal vitamins, took rest when possible (which is hard to do as a therapist in a big hospital), and snack healthy when i could. I still got tired but i made it through
