I feel so retarded asking this because I blatantly admitted a few posts down that I procrastinate going to bed until really late anyway, but I now have a half hour to make a decision....

Have you ever called in sick to work because you didn't get any sleep that night?

I was hoping to get a few hours in before work but I ended up tossing and turning. Next thing I know it's 7:30 in the morning and I haven't slept a wink, yet my body is exhausted and my eyes are already bright red...

I work ten hour days in front of a computer, which even on a good day can be hard to stay awake.

Should I suck it up and go to work even though I won't be able to have more than one cup of caffeine to keep me awake and I most likely will be completely useless since it's hard to focus and concentrate when you're tired and sleep deprived on top of pregnancy-brain which is comparable to Temporary ADD. er.....

Or should I call in sick, making a bad impression, but offer to go in on my next day off?

Should I go in or call in?

Suck it up, it's just sleep.
Call in sick and go in on your day off.
