 I think the only person who knows what is truly TOO MUCH for you is you and maybe your dr.

LISTEN to your body and make changes if necessary

Just figure out your priorities and focus on them.  Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean you SHOULD.

Sounds like my average day with two kids! Get some mommy time in too though!

It is really between you and your doctor.  You are young, so you may be able to push yourself and get along OK. For me it didn't work out and I burned out.  The people I worked with and my family noticed that my temper was very short, and I slept every second that I wasn't working. Once I cut back to a reasonable schedule, people commented on how much more relaxed I seemed. So as NearSeattleMom says, just because you can doesn't mean you should. I've been there, and it took a long time to recover.

how long are you going to play soccer? That doesn't really sound like a good idea to me if you are pregnant.

And how long are you going to be able to compete in track?

If I were you, I would focus on my education. I understand HS sports are fun and a social activity, but shouldn't you be putting your baby first?

good luck

 I don't think any way you look at it getting 4 hrs sleep is healthy!

No, it's not. ESPECIALLY while pregnant. Yikes!
