My appetite has been outta control lately. I can eat so much in one sitting that I'm ashamed of myself. I never ate like this before in my life. I try to limit myself to 3 meals a day, but I'm really maxing out during those 3 meals. If I try to limit my portions I'm still hungry. Are any of you ladies dealing with a massive appetite? Or is my brain just playing tricks on me?

I am the opposite. I need to be eating and I am not hungry. After I eat I feel horrible even when it's healthy food. Eating lots of smalls meals is a little better but not much.... I have zero appetite past 5:00. I'd rather just sleep. I did get scrip for some heartburn meds and I feel a little better after I eat but still no appetite. This is the first time in my entire life I haven't had an appetite.

You described my appetite to a T. At work my coworkers fuss to make sure I eat. Every blue moon I get really hungry and go crazy, but for the most part I eat because I know I need to, but have no desire to eat at all.

I also have an insane appetite. I don't snack really but yes, I go for it at mealtime! My lunches on days I work at the office are out of control--no kids to bug me and lots of options all around. Then usually I am too full for a real dinner!

My appetite has plummeted. When I eat regular portions, I feel sick soon after and regret it. If I try to eat smaller meals, it is only a little better. I was just complaining about this to my husband this morning. I NEED to be eating to feed these twins and so that I don't collapse, but its seriously making me sick. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with heartburn and how smooshed my stomach now is..it feels like my meal is in my throat all the time now. But, meds don't help. I need to find some super high calorie drink or something and just live off that. Any ideas?

I've never had this problem. Usually at this point in pregnancy I can happily eat whatever I want, and more of it.

Can you drink ensure? Not sure of the calorie count, but my sister in law drank it during her pregnancy.

I haven't had any heartburn issues. (Knock on wood) maybe that's why I can throw down at meal time.

I do have heartburn issues and I've lived on zantac for about the last month BUT.....when it's time to eat, it's time to eat!!! I feel like I'm going to starve to death if I don't shovel it in!!! I pay for it very shortly after

My appetite has definitely grown in the past month or so. I'm eating larger meals and snacking more often. I used to be full after a Happy Meal, but now I can finish off a value meal. I don't want to put on too much weight so I need to monitor myself, but when I'm hungry, I'm STARVING.

I am always hungry but a normal portion is too much to eat so I eat a ton of small "meals". I feel like all I do is eat.

JulieMC - I feel the same way. I have no room and I am actually getting pretty uncomfortable. I don't want to complain as I am so grateful but I don't know where these twins are going to fit.

I have an appetite for maybe one meal a day the rest of the time....meh. However I make myself eat at least 3 meals and 2 snacks daily. I think when you are pregnant you should snack myself! I don't add the supposed 300 extra calories you need a day to meal I add in 2- 150 calories worth of snacks.

Perhaps try snacking to see if it helps? Could be you are getting to "empty".

Agreed! They still need to put on a good 4 to 5 pounds EACH before they're born and I can't see where that's going to go. I guess OUT front....because they've already gone UP.

I end up taking half of my meals home when we eat out. About 2 hours later, I'm eating the other half. It's pretty ridiculous that I eat so often all day.

I have days. days where I can only eat 1 meal, and other days when I can't stop eating.

Most days I eat because I have too and then I have days where my appetite is out of control....
