 I am saying sorry ahead of time for the spelling I can barely keep my eyes open.

 This is my second pregnancy and I just cant stay away. Thankfully my son adapted to me today and slept till 9am after I got up with him at 4. And took another nap at 11am and is still sleeping. I took a 2 hour nap but woke up having to pee.

Tips on how to keep my butt awake and please dont say coffee, the smell makes me yack

Im 18 weeks into my second pregancy, I found the days I stayed moving like going for a walk were the days that I have more energy. drinking cold water and eating apples sometimes is a better energy boost then coffee.

 I'm 19 weeks :) I will try taking a walk when I feel really tired and see if that helps. Everyone knows cant walk too much during pregnancy.

 I agree with the apples, I don't remember what vitamin it is, but they're packed with the vitamin that's supposed to give you energy. One apple is supposed to have more waking power than 2 shots of espresso :)

No tips on how to stay awake.
Almonds are good for energy.

Maybe something to ask your doctor next time? I am not sure. My first it was always easy to nap because you didn't have a little one. I don't remember what I did when I had my second one.

I tried to stay hydrated and that helped, I took short cat naps when I could and after I ate, I would do a little exercise, marching in place, little dancing around and it helped me maintained my energy.  Good luck!
