Anyone else feel like a bottomless pit? I know I am a few weeks behind most of you (just about 29 weeks) but within the last few days I feel like I could eat all day! I eat a meal and an hour later I am hungry again. And it isn't just boredom or wanting to eat - I am really hungry! Is this normal for this stage? I don't want to gain a ton of weight, but I also can't stand to be hungry all day!
Thankfully I am a pretty healthy eater and choose lots of fruits and yogurts for snacks. But it sucks to eat and then in a hour be hungry. Does this pass?
Lately I've eased up on the eating. I could eat one meal and stay full, but Im at home all day mostly and usually eat out of boredom, and it is not healthy snacks! I had oatmeal and toast this morning at around 11am and its now 1pm and I grabbed some cheese puffs, cheese pringles and a couple of fig newtons for a snack. I wasnt really hungry though I just like the taste.
Around your gestation I was like that. I actually had gained 5 lbs in 2 weeks at my 30 week appt. I was always hungry, insatiable. Now it's tapered off again, thank goodness. Baby must have had a growth spurt.
