Do you find that you are really hungry and really thirsty?

I can't seem to drink enough water. I'm thirsty all the time and I feel like I am just as hungry now as I was when I was pregnant so losing this weight is not fun.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I am always thirsty. I drink water non-stop. Especially after I pump 8-9 ounces, then I can drink a whole bottle of water in like 30 seconds.

Not necessarily any more hungry than usual...

*Thank you AlexKatieAidenMommy for my awesome siggie*

I'm definitely thirsty all the time and especially when I'm nursing or pumping. It's like BAM instant thirst.

I'm not hungrier than normal overall but sometimes when I'm pumping I get hit with sudden hunger pangs. I try to keep a stash of crackers nearby for when that happens.

Yes, I'm hungry and thirsty all the time too. Just think, when you were pregnant you were supporting a baby that was much smaller. By the time your baby is six months, if you are still EBF, then you'll be the sole supporter of a pretty large baby. That's going to take quite a few extra calories. I think it's 20 calories per ounce, so that's 20 cal. X 30 oz =500 calories.

No, and I never got super hungry or thirsty last time either. It's kind of weird, I know I need to be drinking a LOT more water.

I'm always starving all the time. I've always been a good water drinker but I can definitely drink a lot now. I probably drink about 8 16 oz water bottles a day.

I get extremely thirsty while nursing. I try to make sure I have a drink with me before I start.

Some days I'm hungry and some not.
