It's hit me the past few days, as my nausea has slowed. I'll eat a good meal, then soon after need more. And I'm eating chicken mainly lol so its protein, not junky stuff. I feel it right now and I has a big bowl of wheaties an hour ago. And you know it's not just "hunger" it's that gnawing painful hunger! I feel for ya!
The first 8 weeks or so if I wasn't eating I felt like I was going to be sick. It was terrible the only thing that kept the nausea away was to eat, so I don't even want to know how much weight I have gained. This seems to have gone away a bit, but if I let myself get too hungry I will pay for it with an upset tummy.
I was exactly like this with my first. It was not fun! I haven't really been like that this time around though (thank goodness as I'm overweight this time and don't need the extra food). I couldn't eat enough with first and ended up gaining 15 lbs within 1st trimester. I know how you feel - it's not fun to always be hungry.
Ashley- somehow I've managed to lose a pound. Thankfully. I gained 40+ lbs in my first pregnant from eating terrible, and my 2nd I only gained around 20 or so. Hopefully I can stay in that range again because it was much easier.
I am constantly feeding my face! I feel like everytime my dh wants to talk to me my head is in the pantry or fridge.....I haven't gained any weight yet (hoping to keep it on the lower end of weight gain, with first I gained 17 lbs) And I drank 1.5 gallons of orange juice in 3 days! I am an OJ fiend right now and don't want to drink anything else!
If I don't eat frequently, I feel like I am going to puke and die. But it's so hard for me to find things to eat that don't make me super nauseous! I actually prefer it when I have a strong craving for one thing than having aversions to every single thing. I usually feel sick immediately after eating anyway. Ahhh, crazy pregnancy!!
