This is getting ridiculous. I will eat a large, well balanced dinner and be STARVING an hour later. It goes on like this all day. I feel like I'm constantly eating. I've gained around 17 lbs so far - most of it in the last 1.5 months. I checked my blood sugar on my own and have normal levels so I'm pretty sure it's not becuase of GD.

Anyone else in the same boat? Have you figured out any tricks to stay full? I tried just eating an apple for a snack but it didn't quite work... I was even hungrier a 1/2 hour later and my blood sugar was around 75 which is a little low & makes me crabby (so I needed food).

I was like that for the last month and I gained 10 pounds in one month. I just eat my regular meals and try to make my snacks healthy, but I do have 1 or 2 snacks mid-morning, 1 mid-afternoon, then one after dinner before I go to bed. And sometimes they are not little snacks! I just figure my baby needs to grow and that's why I'm hungry so I eat.

I didn't know GD made you hungry...I didn't have that problem with my DD...now this kid? I'm very hungry the past couple of days. Guess he's trying to gain some weight.

I was feeling that way last month... It seems to be tapering off for me now though.

I feel like I'm always starving too. I even have to wake up in the middle of the night to eat.

I don't think it makes you hungry per se, but it can make you gain weight quickly so I thought *maybe* that's why I was hungry all the time and have gained about 12 lbs in the last month and a half.

I just started on Prilosec which has helped a lot with heartburn and I'm wondering if that could possibly make me hungry? It started right when I started taking it.

I told my doc how hungry I was at my last appointment and since I do have GD to trade a fourth of my carbs for protien. This has helped me alot with my sugar numbers but not so much with the hunger. I eat dinner and then again before bed and I have been having a midnight snack, too! But my gain is only 8lbs which is great!
