Ok last question. Does it seem like

ALL day you're so tired and then once 8pm hits you've got this burst of energy? All day at work I think about coming home and sleeping. Then when I get here I feel like I could be up for hours (and usually am).

Then if I am lucky enough to fall asleep before 11pm, I'm up again at around 4/5am ready to go haha. At that point I have to watch T.V. for a bit or play a video game until I fall back asleep around 6am which doesn't help when I've got to wake up at 8am and go back to work.

It's a vicious cycle!

  • I went through the same thing when I was preggo with my first. All I would be thinking of at work is my bed, then when I get home its either cleaning or watching tv or reading a book all night long.
