Too Tired to Work!

I just don't see how I am going to be able to continue to work! I keep falling asleep at my desk.. Thank goodness we are slow right now. Anyone have any tips on staying awake while at work during pregnancy? I work full time 6 days a week and literally DREAD coming everyday! :/

    I eat oatmeal with fruit every morning for breakfast. My work schedule is 3pm-10pm every day so that's part of the reason I'm having such a hard time. By 10pm, I'm nervous I'll fall asleep on the way home! Luckily it's cold outside so I doubt that will happen. Any suggestions on what is good to eat for lunch and dinner that may help?

    Oh I love it! Google doTerra essential oils... it's concentrated peppermint oil (they have EVERY oil you can think of..) and you can use it for SO many things! I use it for headaches, instead of tylenol, for aches and pains, for nausea, and especially for giving myself an energy boost! You can sniff a bit of it.. or dab it on your forehead, neck, shoulders etc.. I cannot say enough amazing things about it!

    Yeah on my day off I wake up, eat, nap, eat, nap, eat, go to bed. lol!! A nurse at the hospital told me a pregnant woman uses more energy in one day than a man climbing Mount Everest uses. That's crazy!!
