Waking up early.

Am I the only one? It seems as if since I got pregnant (even before I knew, now that I've thought about it) I've been up in the morning by around 7am!! Whether I go to sleep early or not.. haha. I used to be able to sleep in when I could, now no matter what... 7 in the morning is when I'm up. And I NEVER was a morning person. But it seems the morning is when I have the most energy now.. and later in the day is when all my pregnancy symptoms kick in. Odd. (: but I don't even mind.

I'm the complete opposite! I used to never sleep! Be lucky to get 3-4 hours a night.. now since I've been pregnant I have to sleep atleast 10 lol

O yes, when I first find out I was pregnant, I was waking up at 4am in the morning just to mess around and get ready for work. Mind you, work didn't start till 8am. Once 11am hit, I was dog tired. Now I'm 22 weeks and my sleep cycle is completely shot. Go to bed at 9pm and somehow wake up at 2am.

Aww, well glad I'm not the only one! I thought it was all in my head hahaha. Which wouldn't even surprise me with all these hormones!! Anybody have any ideas on how to maybe keep energy up during the day? I usually work early mornings or afternoons.. so by the end of my morning shifts I want to curl up in the corner and die hahahaha. Sometimes I feel I can't make it even TO work on a late shift!
