My god! I haven't had a huge appetite this whole pregnancy. I've had hungry days where I'm more hungry than usual but even then it's not much. Today I have been so hungry. I ate my normal bowl of cereal for breakfast, stomach was still growling, ate a doughnut, stomach still growling, decided that I needed something healthy so ate a cup of my son's applesauce, still hungry. Gave vin and ate another bowl of cereal. Still hungry. By this time it's lunch so when DH got up he made me a sandwich with chips and salsa on the side. This has got to fill me up! The cats better stay away, is all I'm saying. Belladonna is pretty fat, I could nibble on her for a week. I wonder if this is a result of that little bit of exercise I got yesterday at the playground? Sheesh.
I've been insatiable too, I finally bit the bullet and am tracking my calories and what I eat in an effort to make better choices after a 2.5 pound gain in one week. I know I'm pregnant, but not with multiples! I refuse to gain 40 pounds, I'm hoping I can stall at 30 for a couple weeks and gain 35 max by the end now that I'm not on the eat everything I see diet.
I eat ridiculous amounts at the moment, but I make sure most of it is the good stuff and because I'm anaemic as well I just eat when I feel like it, because if I don't, I feel faint. I'll have to deal with any weight gain after the fact but so far I'm not really gaining over the odds so I guess I just need the food.
I've always gained over in the past too. For some reason I gained less with my son (37 lbs) when I was eating everything in sight than I did with my daughter (40 lbs) when I was eating normally. This time around, depending on the scale, I've gained 23 or 21 so far and I'm really happy with that. I'm really hoping to keep it around 25 lbs by the time I have him but even if I go a bit over that would be fine considering my past weight gain. I tend to drop 20 lbs just from having a baby so having only 5 to 10 lbs to lose this time around versus the 20 lbs I've had to lose in the past is fine by me.
Well I ate the sandwich and managed to get some of the chips before my daughter scarfed them all and am finally feeling full again. Yay!
Nah I'm always stuffing my face. I'm amazed I haven't gained more this pregnancy!!! Seriously. I was super healthy and then I just said screw it! I'm so hungry I just eat what I want! In addition to my healthy stuff too.
I have random hungry days....today is not one of them though!
I've gained almost 40 so far Add that to the 20lbs I gained right before getting my bfp from quitting smoking and I feel like I'm dragging around at least 60lbs extra...it really sucks. I've been watching what I eat for the most part but its those hungry days that get me.
