The last three days have been very weird for me. I have been STARVING bigtime. Not just hungry but feeling like I haven't eaten at all a few hours after a meal.

I lost a little over 7 lbs between weeks 35 and 36.5... And I haven't felt like this all pregnancy long. Suddenly I feel like I need to eat ..A LOT!

What's that about? Anyone else in the same boat?

Me too! The last week I wake up Starving and in between meals, and when I get ready for bed I am starving again. Might be because I cant eat alot at once so I get more hungry more often.... Not sure

I had a few days like that a couple weeks ago. I felt like a bottomless pit and like I couldn't eat enough. Thankfully, it subsided. But it showed up on the scale at my last visit!

Maybe because baby is dropping so its not constricting your stomach as much? I always get crazy hungry like 15 minutes before bed. :/

Yes! I'm in the same boat and can't figure it out. I'm always hungry and am eating tons. Baby definitely hasn't dropped, and at my doctors appointment today I'd LOST a pound. I was so surprised. Our little babies must be packing it on hehe.

YES! I actually went and got breakfast this morning after three days of being ridiculously hungry before lunch.

My midnight snacks have become quite regular. This happened around the same time last pregnancy too.

I've just been craving chocolate ALOT more. Probably because of stress for me.. But heartburn has been serious for me lately so I can't eat a whole lot

I am super hungry lately too, but I am scared to eat anything because of my gall bladder. I just want to eat the food I crave/want and not be in pain!

I'm super hungry all the time also, but I can't seem to be able to eat much. I'm starving right now, but I know I won't be able to eat much. Maybe I will go find something, lol!

I believe it is because our babies are dropping and giving us more room for our stomachs!!! Ive been really hungry too!

Maybe it's your body's way of storing up energy for labor??? Although, mainly I agree that the babies have probably dropped somewhat and freed up stomach space.
